Andrej Pejic: Boy Wonder To Femme Fatale
Andrej Pejic has gone on record saying he’d consider a sex change if offered a contract with Victoria’s Secret and with his great body, gorgeous looks, and luscious locks he’d probably make one hot angel. This runway star is continuing his rise to top model stardom; first I spotted him at NYFW, then he closed Jean Paul Gaultier‘s show and now Pejic is doing his first ever beauty editorial with StyleCaster. Photographed by Thomas Lohr, the model poses in some very feminine shots for this “Boy Wonder” editorial. To me, Pejic is more of a femme fatale than a boy wonder, but his gender-bending background helps keep him diverse in the modeling industry.
On his rise to fame after only two seasons of modeling:
“The media storm is very surprising since models don’t really get so much attention these days. So I guess it has gone beyond just the fashion industry or any model ranking, which is nice because it’s offering me a wide array of opportunities. But sometimes I do just have to stop and hit myself in the head with my diamond-encrusted vase.”
Playing dress up as s kid:
“Oh all the time mostly as a female gypsy dancer.”
On him and Lea T. being the faces of androgyny in modeling:
“Well I don’t think my situation and Lea T’s are completely different when it comes to our personal lives but that’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 women’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 – more androgynous, more boyish or even sex-less rather than womanly. I think professionally I am capable of being very versatile.”
