Boy, Oh Boy George

Never a publication considered out of vogue, Vogue magazine is keeping up with the trend of drag, reintroduced into mainstream media by Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” by featuring Boy George as a “Beauty Icon.” We at THE POP FIX would beg to differ, but it’s hard to disagree with Vogue. I guess there’s nothing like a boy who looks like a girl…just ask RuPaul.


But if this is supposed to be our ideal standard of beauty, I think our country may have more than the economy to worry about…

Hmmm, how can I best describe the above image? I’m still not 100% sure, but I think I’m going to go with, “Geisha on crack.” Yes, that works. Apparently this image of Boy George at the height of his Culture Club career is infiltrating the runways, and the high-fashion translation looks a little like this:

Although we see the unfortunate resemblance, it doesn’t mean we approve. Boy George was certainly unique, and an interesting character, but even he’s ditched the clown-like, crayola inspired make-up back in the 90’s. Since then he’s moved on to neutral shades, he cleaned it up and toned it down:

Come on, Vogue. Get with the program.
