You knew it had to happen sooner than later: drag queens, cross dressers and transvestites have gone mainstream and are now poised to dominate high fashion runways.
Bosnian model Andrej Pejic, and now Lea T (pictured above) are causing a frenzy in the world of high fashion. Natural born female supermodels are glancing nervously over their bony shoulders at their male counterparts whose flawless gender bending looks and statuesque physiques have made them famous.
From Splash News Online:
This is Lea T, born Leandro Cerezo, the world's first transgender supermodel as she hits the catwalk in her first ever fashion show in Sao Paulo Fashion Week on January 29th. The Brazilian was the star of local designer Alexandre Herchcovitz' show and was the last one on the runway. She was watched by her dad, Brazilian soccer player Toninho Cerezo, as she returned to the country for the first time since becoming famous - having said she left to live in Italy partly because of discrimination. There had also been reports her family was struggling to accept her new life, which she has denied. It came on the back of a whirlwind of publicity that propelled her into sudden stardom, after appearing in a ground-breaking Givenchy advert and a magazine cover in which she kisses Kate Moss. She returned as a star and lead to a media and fan frenzy at the SPFW venue.
