Men Pretend to Be Women in Fashion Ad

antonia_ad.jpg

Found on Supertween and The Cool Hunter and sent to us by Susannah Breslin, these ads, created by Red Cell, for Milan womans' boutique Antonia apparently want men to think the store's so cool, they'll do anything to get in. Or, it's yet another ad treating men like idiot metrosexuals. Or, it's just high fashion advertising for which there's never a good explanation.

I don't get it. A women's botique that sells clothing to women is trying to market istelf to women by showing a picture of a dickless man.

You're males, therefore you don't understand it.

Women are used to be talked to as if they must conform to a certain look to be acceptable.

The look that most women are told to conform to to be HOT and fashionable is exactly what this guy looks like.

A toned beanpole with limited clues on sexual preference.

Maybe slightly off topic, but here are some ads that are very sexually explicit and I thought were interesting.

Note - not safe for work
