7.45K 1

Watch Ruby Rose use the power of the visual to communicate her views on sexuality and gender.

Taking to Facebook this week, the 28-year-old shared her debut short film ‘Break Free’ – transforming her feminine look into that of a man (bandaging her chest and wearing a sex toy).

The video starts, with Ruby wearing long blonde hair, and the picture of femininity as she stares into the mirror. The model then sets her eyes on a pair of scissors, the music kicks in as she grabs for them and starts tapping her forehead with the blades, before another shot of the star again staring into the mirror ended the short clip.

After some consideration she starts chopping at her hair and the transformation begins – transforming her do into a pixie crop look similar to the hairstyle she currently sports. She then scrubs her smooth skin to reveal the array of bold statement tattoos that she sports on her arms and neck. Taking her transformation to the next level, she bandages her chest and straps on a dildo before swapping her fitted frock for a smart suit. Hot!

Engaged to fashion designer Phoebe Dahl, Ruby revealed earlier this year in April that she had longed to undergo a female to male transition when she was younger. Referring to her current androgynous style, she said seeing recent pictures of herself reminded her of feelings she had about her gender many years ago…

‘It’s weird, some of the androgynous photos I have taken lately really make me wonder what i’d have looked like if I did a FTM (Female to male) transition like I wanted to when I was younger,’

But Ruby then said she is now at peace with her appearance and went on to explain that in her Facebook post.

‘Happy how I am.. I am a woman, but I would have been just as comfortable as a boy. I know a lot of people don’t understand that, but I know a few of you do’
