Andrej Pejic

With flowing long locks, porcelain skin, a jaw line that could slice cheese and a delicate frame, it’s easy to see why Andrej Pejic is the model of the moment. What makes this Australian different is that he’s a ‘he’!
19 year old Bosnia - Herzegovina born Pejic recently closed the Jean-Paul Gaultier’s women’s spring summer 2011 haute couture show dressed as a bride and wearing strategically placed tulle stripes. Pejic also stars in the new Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign, and has graced the pages of French and Italian Vogue too.
Fashion has long toyed with and challenged gender stereotypes, but this dalliance somehow seems more subversive, perhaps only because it’s shocking that a male can pass so convincingly as a woman without a hint of his true identity. Either way, his looks are hauntingly beautiful.
