MGK breaks fashion norms rocking a sheer corset on the red carpet, but what if a woman wore it?

I love the risk, but would it be celebrated if it were a female?!

Machine Gun Kelly has no problem pushing fashion boundaries by leaning into his feminine style and his recent fashion statement is no exception.

Joined by fiancée Megan Fox at the 2022 Time100 Next Gala, MGK turned heads in a sheer, bedazzled corset and latex shrug with matching gloves and low-rise pants.

Fans were into the look, with one digging the fit choice writing: “MGK in a corset? Yeah, I love it!”

Even British Vogue agreed, calling the look a “highlight” of the night.

Another even compared his look to the House of Dragons Targaryen family - tbh they’re not wrong.

The bun says it all!

MGK isn’t the only male star pushing the boundaries, 2022 has seen Harry Styles and Timothee Chalamet rocking some epic gender-fluid outfits at high-profile events.

What is interesting to note about these bold fashion statements becoming more and more popular is that more often than not high profile women taking those same risks don’t reap the rewards.

The ‘Don’t Worry Darling' star began receiving "vulgar" comments she received from men who were upset to see a woman's nipples through her dress - Grow up!

Florence later had to address the backlash saying: “Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it. Whether it be negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing.”

"What’s been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see.”

Florence added: "It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body from a crowd of strangers, what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be.”

Listen to the Talking Out The Trash podcast to hear about the Kiwi bar that hit headlines for their eyebrow-raising job ad:

So why are we so afraid of a woman’s nipple, but so proud of a man’s? I know there’s a lot more to it, but does there really have to be? 

Both celebrities rocked their looks and felt totally confident in their own bodies, so why is it up to us to determine whether it’s acceptable or not?
