Lea T, Model

Lea T has been turning heads in the fashion business since 2010 when she became the face of Givenchy. Since then, she has been featured in Vogue Paris, Interview and Cover and photographed by the likes of Terry Richardson. Most recently she starred in the ad campaign for UCB (United Colors of Benetton).

Lana Wachowski, Director/Producer

As one of the Wachowski siblings, Lana is one of the most powerful voices in Hollywood. Her and her brother not only wrote, directed and produced The Matrix, but were also behind V for Vendetta and Cloud Atlas. Their next project is the upcoming original NetFlix series, Sense8. While her transition was always a source of rumors in Hollywood, she made her first public appearance when promoting Cloud Atlas and was later recognized by the Human Rights Campaign.
