It takes a strong, confident woman for whom femininity is not a purpose but more of a habitude, to be able to fully submerge in a masculine movement and come out as the embodiment of pure sophistication. Brain, soul, manners, perhaps a classic set of features and the right attitude prove that femininity doesn’t really hide in the shortest of dresses. Dipped in high contrast black and white, Frankie Batista‘s femininity-meets-masculinity concept succeeds in elevating the classic attributes of female dandyism.

Less about an irrepressible predilection for wool trousers and structured blazers, the masculine femininity is a celebration of crossed gender lines, a strive to find a distinctive style, a beautiful but concise act of rebellion. Photographed for Marie Claire Mexico and styled by Gerard Angulo, Frankie Batista’s editorial highlights a modern masculine aesthetic indulged in subtle feminine accents.

Starring the gorgeous Luci Taffs sporting make-up by Tsipporah Liebman and hair by Karina Vega, you can view the complete editorial at the gallery.
