When I heard that Bosnian model Andrej Pejic had landed a Gaultier Ad campaign I thought… nothing. I thought she was one of that great herd of Lara Stone lookalikes. But then I realized that Andrej is a dude.
Not transgender. Just a dude. And a dude who is considered “a rising star” in the industry. It’s kind of amazing to consider that 50 years ago, being a man and having pictures of yourself taken in feminine poses was enough to get you ostracized (think Ed Wood) while now it will land you a Gaultier campaign. Go Andrej! Go society! Let’s just hope they don’t saw a gap in his teeth.
