London, June 26 : Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev's daughter has said that the world has become 'increasingly effeminate,' thanks to men's growing interest in fashion and beauty.
In a conference, Dariga Nazarbayeva - a businesswoman and former Member of Parliament - said that the contemporary young men are paying more attention to how they look.
"Men are now paying more attention to themselves and fashion," The Independent quoted Dariga, as saying.
"They started going to beauty parlours and hair salons a lot more often. They started doing manicure.
"I can't say it's a concern but, looking at the appearance of contemporary young men, one may notice how much their notions of masculinity have changed, how this masculinity is being sometimes replaced by femininity.
"One cannot help but notice that the world of men has become increasingly effeminate. ... I don't know whether we can see this as our gender's victory," she added.
