“I always dreamt of being a girl. … I was proud of my gender nonconforming career. But my biggest dream was to be comfortable in my own body. I have to be true to myself and the career is just going to have to fit around that. … Every day is like a new revelation. I’m more comfortable than ever. I feel at a 100 percent.”

In an interview with People, model Andreja Pejic, 22, whose androgynous look made waves in the fashion industry, officially announced that she — formerly known as Andrej — underwent sex reassignment surgery earlier this year and identifies as a trans woman. In 2011, Pejic became a breakout star of the fashion world, walking both the menswear and womenswear runways, including donning a wedding dress for legendary designer Jean Paul Gautier. Pejic had known since she was very young that she “always wanted to be a girl,” dressing up in skirts and playing with dolls. Social pressure forced her to conform to traditional male gender roles, but when she was 13, a Google search opened up a whole new world of understanding. “I went into the library and typed ‘sex change’ into Google and my life changed,” she told People. “The Internet gave me the sense that there were words to describe my feelings and medical terms.” Keep reading »

Andrej Pejic in Vogue Brazil

Model Andrej Pejic appears in the June issue of Vogue Brazil, nude, wearing only silver nail polish. The famously androgynous Andre has walked the runway in both men’s and women’s clothing, and regularly appears in fashion editorials decked out in high fashion women’s clothes.

Of his look, Andrej has said, “The way I need to look, it’s a very personal thing. When I started experimenting, it was to make myself feel happy, to look in the mirror and be satisfied. I never did drag or anything like that. It was always that I wanted to be pretty, to look beautiful, as a girl would want to … In this society, if a man is called a woman, that’s the biggest insult he could get. Is that because women are considered something less?”

Look for Casey on the runway in January!

Andrej Pejic, the androgynous, biologically male beauty who rose to notoriety as a working female model, ushered in the changing tides of a new non-gender conformative face to fashion. Cast in editorial and runway positions that were previously only filled by women, he became the singular poster child for a generation unencumbered by the trappings of traditional gender roles.

But don’t ask Casey Legler about terms like gender identity and gender expression: for the New York City-based “art maker,” the topic is not sex, it’s freedom. “It would be a really beautiful thing if we could all just wear what we wanted, without it meaning something,” says the former Olympic swimmer ― so it seems an understandable, if not expected, progression that she, at a striking, willowy 6’2″, is one of the first (if not the first) women to be signed exclusively to a men’s modeling contract.

I won’t even pretend to know what’s going on in this Adeen photoshoot starring gender-bending model Andrej Pejic and, uh, two other guys. On Adeen’s website they say Andrej’s hat is an ode to RuPaul who always says on his show that one must have “Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent.” Hmm, I don’t think that’s what most people are going to think when they see that word.

Now this is dedication: an anonymous man got a tattoo of gender-bending supermodel Andrej Pejic on his arm. The tattoo was discovered by fashion blog Fashin, which makes us think that the wearer must know that Andrej is a biological he. But … perhaps not. What do you think of the angelic Andrej?

Andrej Pejic is hands-down the most talked-about model of the year and not just because he — yes, he — is ethereally beautiful. The trans model has worked his androgynous look to his advantage, walking catwalks for John Paul Gaultier and covering Out magazine. Now Andrej Pejic has landed a Dutch campaign for push-up bras. Yes, push-up bras!

He is indisputably lovely here. But I also have to wonder, at what point does casting the trans model in advertising shoots for stereotypical-lady products become stunt-casting? Or is stunt-casting not such a bad thing if it makes the world at large more comfortable with trans folks? [Queerty] Keep reading »

Andrej Pejic Says His Looks Are “Personal”

“The way I need to look, it’s a very personal thing. When I started experimenting, it was to make myself feel happy, to look in the mirror and be satisfied. I never did drag or anything like that. It was always that I wanted to be pretty, to look beautiful, as a girl would want to … In this society, if a man is called a woman, that’s the biggest insult he could get. Is that because women are considered something less?”

–Gender-bending model Andrej Pejic on his androgynous looks. I find it fascinating that Pejic says that he needs to look the way that he does — it highlights that, for transgender people, the desire to dress or perform as one gender identity or another isn’t simply a matter of dress up, but one of necessity. Pejic also says that he doesn’t ever mind being mistaken for a woman, despite the idea that men typically balk at being called female, and brings up an interesting hypothesis as to why.
