A staple of Louis Vuitton’s runway (she’s been his muse for five years in a row), Swiss model Tamy Glauser has already proven she’s wise beyond her years.

Dubbed by the fashion community as an androgynous beauty, Tamy wants to get one thing straight right away: androgyny is not about her looks, nor is it about her clothes. She recently told Vogue,

A thought such as ‘what could I wear that’s androgynous’ has never crossed my mind, yet I am always perceived that way by others. My theory is that androgyny is within my being and not within my clothing.”

YAS! Androgyny can be such a difficult concept for many to understand, but Tamy is so articulate in her explanation.

She added that she’s relieved that the fashion world is finally coming to understand the complexity of gender, and hopes it will trickle down to the masses.

“It’s a wonderful thing that the fashion industry realizes that thinking in gender is nothing but a self-restriction. Why tie yourself down to two genders when there are uncountable possibilities and in-betweens, no gender strings attached, free.”
