Skirters in the Music Industry

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Martin Gore of Depeche Mode appears to have been a prominent skirter in years gone by.

The guy in the jacket, short blue dress and tights is just some guy busking, AFAIK. There's a video of him (the pic is a still from the video) on YouTube, but I can't find it. It was linked to from hereabouts a while back.

He looks completely comfortable in the outfit, like it's a normal thing to wear. And it looks really good.
Keep on skirting,

Alastair

Yes agree - that short blue dress must be a skirt cause the top is a collared shirt ?
Wished there was more photos of him - a really snazzy well coordinated outfit !
The footwear appears to be clogs - or whatever the Dutch call their footwear ?
Maybe a clue to finding out the whereabouts of this guy.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I just ran across a group that wears kilts. Celkilt At least in their music videos.

If you want bizarre Japanese music there is a group called lady baby, watch the videos featuring lady beard

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.
