An exploration of what it means to be fabulous—and why eccentric style, fashion, and creativity are more political than ever.
Is fabulous style only about labels, narcissism, and selfies—looking good and feeling gorgeous? Or can acts of fabulousness be political gestures, too? What are the risks of fabulousness? And in what ways is fabulous style a defiant response to the struggles of living while marginalized?
