Balmain Designer Poses Nude!
Rousteing may be the latest male fashion designer to pose in nothing but his friendship bracelets, but he is hardly alone in this expression of a concept: The desire to shed one’s clothes and stare at a camera has been indulged by these guys since at least 1971, when Yves Saint Laurent did the same thing—his single accessory of choice not bracelets, but his trademark spectacles.
But for men, it seems like it’s the other way around. This peacock syndrome is just another way of their saying—look at me! See how hot I am? Their male gaze, directed at themselves, is perhaps just another boast, another example of these kings of the world displaying their power, their prowess.
