When my English teacher announced we would be studying ‘A Streetcar Named Desire,’ I have to admit to a light leap of the heart as I reminisced on John Galliano‘s ‘Blanche DuBois’ collection of 1988 and Marlon Brando in all his retro glory; oozing sex appeal and hard-edged fashion prowess.

He’s won a ton of awards, just launched state-side, swam across the English Channel and even been spotted with the likes of Natalie Imbruglia and Kate Moss on his arm. Now, the comedian had decided to write a book for children, ‘The Boy In The Dress,’ about a boy who likes to dress in female clothing and his journey to see the approval of his peers. Illustrated by Quentin Blake, I’m sure it will sell simply on shock factor but it would struggle to be as shocking as this editorial from Parade magazine.
