Fair enough that women call out the inequalities with questions about representation (megan fox) and personal lives (keira) but when it comes down to the “who are you wearing” question-the “backlash” for that is pointless.
1)The dress code between males and females is different. Events that require “black tie” etc. usually require males to wear dinner jackets/tuxedos whereas women have few boundaries when it comes to style and color of their outfits-hence why its makes more sense to ask about how they look
2) In a general sense women represent the fashion industry much more at events. In most cases females on the red carpet will be paid to wear certain brands and designers as a form of sponsorship and promotion. If the celebrities didn’t want or care for such questions then what is stopping them from wearing something from ASDA or “Target”. The point of questioning “who are you wearing” is a form of promotion for the designers who put a lot of work into how people look. Its a multi-billion dollar industry folks!
3)Its a vicious cycle, people always say that men are dictating this gender imbalance or they are being sexist but its women that are enforcing this kind of “aesthetic sexism”. The main target audience for these designers and through that the celebrities are women. The women who buy the magazines or watch the tv shows. In a general sense i wouldn’t expect to find a straight man watching these interviews and trying to enforce the supposed sexism going on. I know i may get ratted on for being a male commenting on topics like this but i genuinely think that when it comes to fashion it just makes sense :-/
