CUNT: A Black and White Series by ADEEN


“The C*NT hat pays homage to RuPaul in general and the message from his show, Drag Race, that one must always have Charisma, Uniqueness Nerve and Talent!”
When I made this hat I could only think of ONE person I wanted to model it. I HAD to ask Andrej if she would be willing to model the hat. Luckily for me she agreed! And the result came out soooooo good! I'm so happy. This hat is really as much of a hat paying homage to Andrej as it is to RuPaul. Two big influences in my life and two people who I'm thankful for everyday. Enjoy! 


UPDATE! 
Ok so before I start getting women's rights at my door, the CUNT hat, really isn't for the women of the world. Its for the gay community. Its not meant to be an insult women, I LOVE women. But its a word people in my generation use to call someone fabulous or amazing. Its my homage not only to RuPaul and Andrej, but to those in the gay community who have supported me and continue to do so. Same with HOOD, its paying my respect in the boldest yet simplest way possible. Giving someone a certain feeling when wearing the hat. When you put on the CUNT hat you feel just that. CUNT, fabulous and amazing. My grandmother and mother are a huge part of my company. Hell, my grandmother sews the crown backcharms and labels into the CUNT hats. She understands what it means and sees my vision. And if after knowing all that and are still offended or do not understand than unfortunately maybe the hat or ADEEN isn't for you. Fashion should be about pushing the envelope and looking great all while feeling even better. Thats the only way I know how to do it! :)

This is very offensive, and i am appalled at the use of this word.

the word is hardly offensive.. in england this is used often amoung young people
it has long lost its true meaning like most slag words these days

Just wondering why you referred to Andrej as "she" ...? thought he always clarified he is not transgender or transexual ..

THE USE OF GENDER PRONOUNS IS ARBITRARY, ESPECIALLY IN THE GAY COMMUNITY. IF YOU TAKE OFFENSE TO THIS, IM SORRY BUT YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND. TAKE THE TIME AND DO THE RESEARCH, MISS THING!

THANKS JIMMY, FOR YOUR SUPPORT
