himbo bimbo, when men became sluts

male models had a major breakthrough in the fashion scene fall 2009. they stormed the advertising business and fashion houses nailed each print ad with their daring, nude-oriented spreads. surprisingly, it has been sought by consumers and more and more advertising centered entirely on men without clothes or men with women's clothes. there has been a shift on how the male body should be [the hedi slimane days]. today, male models are regarded as man whores, skinny, tall and meaty [by meaty i mean muscles]. the fall 2009 ads were queued with controversial almost censored advertisements.

but himbo does not only connote men posing nude, it is sometimes regarded as men wearing female clothes. like what uncle karl is doing to his baptiste giabiconi recently.
