Don't Dream It, Be It

I recently saw a picture in Entertainment Weekly (of the cast of Okja, taken at the Cannes Film Festival), and I was struck by an overwhelming thought. Now, I have the benefit of calling myself transgender (despite having no interest in surgery), but let's put aside the notion of gender identity for a moment, and the idea that men wear this and women wear that. How could anyone look at this picture and not think, "forget all those boring guys in identical suits, I want to be Lily Collins in that elegant dress and dazzling heels!" Is it just me?
