Another musical example of men in dresses...

Indochine's video for their song "Marilyn" (2002) features boys in skirts and other forms of gender-bending.

^^Also love The Cure pics... I love "Boys Don't Cry"- one of my all time favorite songs by The Cure.  :)  The reaction of the goofy audience at the end of this is too funny.  It's almost worthy of Monty Python.  :laugh:

Wish I could see this, but alas "not available in your country", dang. Can't watch the Indochine video either. Indochine - this brings back memories from 1984 when they had a hit with L'aventurier. Didn't know they're still active.

Aww, that's always so frustrating.  What country are you in?  I get that error from time to time to, depending on what I'm trying to watch.  There are probably other versions of both of those on YouTube if you search for them (often these things get shared by a lot of different people in different countries/ formats... so sometimes you can get lucky finding other versions).

The Indochine is, of course, in French, which I love.  And, it's quite catchy in a unique way, and needless to say a very sexy video. :)

Yeah, I have an online friend on another forum who is totally obsessed with Indochine and I've actually gotten into them a bit through her (she's in New Zealand by the way).  They do seem quite active these days, but yeah they are quite a long-running band.  Good for them. :)

Germany. A lot of music isn't available here. I tried a few free proxies but none of them worked. Looking for other versions is a good idea, I'll try that.

I always wonder how videos get blocked on YouTube for certain countries?  It seems so odd, when the same links work for everyone else.  But, yeah, it happens for me too from time to time with videos posted from other countries (I'm in the U.S.).

I know you often can't embed "official" videos in forums like this.  So, I automatically look for versions saved by fans.

I think they check the IP address. Over here the problem is that youtube and a German company that represents the copyright owners (companies like Sony, UMG etc)  can't agree on how much money youtube should pay for their content, so youtube decided to block the videos for German users after the old contract expired in 2009.

Here's another guy with a skirt or kilt to make up for the OT posts. The pic is from an online shop for clothes for Goths. There are several skirts for men on that website, seems to be quite hip.

:)  Yeah, just do a google image search for him... quite amazing.  And, he's quite the sensation right now doing a lot of work this year for major designers.



Wow, I would totally not have though he was a guy....

Maybe technically not a dress, but definitely a man!

One out of two is not bad!    ;D :laugh:

You bet!  ;D

I'm amazed at the pics on this thread, had no idea rock bands had such a history of skirt love.  8)
