Model Casey Legler Wears Tutus, Models Men’s Clothes

Julie Gerstein / April 21, 2013

We introduced you to model Casey Legler before — she’s the gorgeous former Olympic swimmer who’s signed as a male model with Ford Models, and has been forging a successful fashion career ever since. In the video above, she talks to a couple of bewildered CNN anchors about being discovered by photographer Cass McCombs.

“I really was in love with tutus,” says Casey. “Wow,” gasps the female anchor, as Casey admits that despite her short-cropped hair and tomboy clothing, she still occasionally enjoys a tutu. Casey further blows her mind by telling her that “this, in the fashion world is just an example of what’s happening in a larger sphere.” Indeed! [SheWired]
