Women have done the boyfriend-jean thing to death already. What about turning the tables for once? Lucky for us, it's an approach Barcelona-based photographer Jon Uriarte not only thought of, but executed and documented, in his head-turning series "The Men Under the Influence." In it, he asked men in Spain and in the U.S. to pose for portraits wearing their girlfriend's clothing, aiming to illustrate the ever-changing dynamics in modern hetero relationships. "The project seeks to talk about a sense of looseness on [the part of] the men of our generation when facing the new status of the women," he told Yahoo! Shine. And the results--which may look ironically like a series on cross-dressers or early-stage trans women--are intriguingly beautiful.--Beth Greenfield, Shine Staff
