Block Magazine is celebrating the otherwordly beauty of Andrej Pejic with an editorial “Boy Wonder” and interview (always a nice get for a non-supermodel). When they asked him about whether or not he was comfortable being the face of a new movement in androgyny alongside Lea T, he said:
Well I donâ€™t think my situation and Lea T’s are completely different when it comes to our personal lives but thatâ€™s personal, for me at least. And I really think people should stop trying to categorize me because of their need for labels. When it comes to our professional lives, well she only does womenâ€™s wear and I think I cover more fields. Some people in the industry will use us in a very similar way to represent similar ideas and some will want me to be a bit different from her â€“ more androgynous, more boyish or even sex-less rather than womanly. I think professionally I am capable of being very versatile.
TheGloss is always psyched to see Andrej, but I think he’s dead right: he is versatile. Moreover, in the short time it’s taken him to rule the male modeling world, I’ve already gotten kind of bored with yet another editorial of Andrej Pejic wearing a dress. Yes, he’s gorgeous and delicate and feminine, but it would be a lot more interesting if every image of him didn’t hinge on that feminine quality.
