Look at Carole Lombard; this is an archetype that still endures today. WP/photogallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_plombard4Fashion modelling seems to me to have a lot to answer for in some modern-day transsexuals’ dress and gesture.I know they’re only actors, but don’t their clothes and mannerisms embody one particularly enduring female archetype: the homely matriarch, reliable or regal in manner, often iron-clad in a blouse with a fussy bow and high collar, and/or with an impressive frontage that carries all before her?The capable mother figure, the formidable female authority, not to be gainsaid.Give him this due though: Redmayne does highlight something I’ve observed among most transgender friends: their love of fabric just as fabric: satin, lace and fur; the feel of frills and furbelows and bows under the fingers.For the transsexual, not just the actor, forget such everyday wear as mine: jeans and a sweatshirt; a tailored skirt and top, if I have to be more formal; velvet trousers and a loose blouse for evening.
