His views are not something that every man believes so it’s hard to imagine that the world would ever adopt the idea of gender-fluidity without judging a man from their clothes.

Actor Billy Porter 

American Actor and Singer, Billy Porter has always discussed about the men’s fashion. He said, “What is masculinity? What does that mean? Women show up every day in pants, but the minute a man wears a dress, the seas part.”

He further added, wearing women’s pieces will raise the question on their gender identity and thus many actors are afraid to experiment with clothes and stick to the status quo set by the society.

Ranveer Singh

Ranveer Singh is a style icon of Bollywood who is known for his quirky fashion sense. During the GQ Magazine red carpet event, Ranveer stunned everyone with his outfit selection. He opted for a blue skirt with big buttons and blue belt.
