Jason Wu Tugs at My Heartstrings, Shows Lady Bowners

Leandra Medine | February 11, 2011

I understand you may become thoroughly sick of reading my rants about lady bowners but nothing excites me more than the prospect of watching next fall follow an aesthetic I am so keen on and as is happens, lady bowners were all the rage on Jason Wu’s runway.

As evidenced by the above photos, androgyny chic infused with a proportionate size of femininity is following us deep into the trenches of next fall and that means one thing and one thing only: loads o’fashion buddies, very few to have sex with. And as though my heart weren’t undergoing severe palpitations as it were gazing longingly at the neck pieces adorning the above, well, necks…
By golly a towel made entirely of feathers! With polka dot legs peeking out!
Fall stats as of February 11: Jason Wu, 1. Birth control, 0.
  • I finally JUST understood what you meant by "birth control" glasses (and now, all fab things of birth controlling nature). I think Jason Wu's collection just gave me a lady bowner myself~ totally in love with this androgynous look!

  • a big HUZZAH for bow ties! they're quite the cherry on top. as for the last pic, i'm fond of anything that would make a cat go crazy

  • Do you consider your man-repeller looks to be woman-repeller looks for lesbians as well? Or are we assuming lesbians would follow in the fashion footsteps and love lady bowners? Hah.

  • gad that dress is amazing!!

  • Women doing male androgony has been happening since times immemorial…so is men increasingly imbibing the female characteristics…a sort of "reverse androgyny"!! I love the two concepts and incorporated them on my blog.


  • i have a lady boner for that feather dress and i must get polka dot tights in my life.


  • The last dress is fantastic! 😀


  • hahaha, or as my friends call the bows i always wear around my waist and of whose strings i inadvertently let hang down: bow-naires (the french bowners).

    I reviewed Wu's collection too, but was more drawn to the lace "nikabs" aka face veils (having lived in the mideast for many years). makes me want to pull out that burqa! review below-enjoy!
