Can A Woman Be A Dandy?

Cuffington Shoutout: Who's Your Dandy?

Cuffington has Dandyism on the brain with the recent coverage of Sebastian Horsely. While it isn't considered transgressive for a woman to spend time on her appearance it would seem a man with an unusual style can create quite a stir. Cuffington is asking her readers to weigh in on who they consider to be a dandy. And while Dandyism has a long and delightful history and we can think of many admirable men who hold the title, we are curious if a woman can achieve the title herself. Apparently if she dresses like a man it is possible to go down the road of dandyism like Russian poet Zinaida Gippius. Nevertheless, it would seem the realms of male and female taste when it comes to aesthetics is simply bound to diverge. And while a woman may be crazy about a sharp dressed man, how do we feel about a woman? For More Shoutouts Click Here
