This sounds about right.  I don’t think anyone expected her to be modeling Red Bottoms.

ESPN’s Kate Fagan revealed that Griner’s contract will allow her to wear clothes branded for men.

Androgynous models are coveted in high-end fashion, but the trend toward gender-neutral clothing has only just begun to reach the sports world, with NBA stars Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade blurring the lines in their tight jeans and fitted sweaters.

“It clicked for me,” Griner says. “I used to do the whole baggy, hard-core, I’m-a-boy look. Then I went through a preppy phase. Now I have the athletic, bow-tie look. I found my style.”

If she likes it, we love it.  Can’t be any worse than…
