There’s a new top model on the international womenswear catwalks this season. Tall, beautiful and graceful in a way that only a model can be, Andrej Pejic is the name that everybody is talking about. At 6ft, with gorgeous blonde hair and a stunning figure, Andrej looks incredible in dresses by the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier but there’s a twist – Andrej is a man.
Andrej’s feminine looks have earned him work modelling for both men and womenswear, and his CV includes shoots for Raf Simons, Paul Smith and John Galliano as well as magazines Arena Homme Plus, Wonderland, Dazed & Confused Japan, and most recently for Vogue Paris’ September issue.
The Telegraph’s Hilary Alexander explains: ‘Andrej is obviously beautiful and he has the most amazing figure. When you consider that a lot of designers are designing for this impossible ideal for someone who is 5ft 11in, no hips and no chest. It's not just a fashion thing. People are more accepting of transgender personalities, civil marriage and gay couples adopting. It's only natural that a transgender person would appear on a catwalk modelling both menswear and womenswear.’ It certainly seems to be doing Andrej’s career options no harm at all.
