In the fickle world of fashion, Andrej Pejic could have been just another androgynous pretty face to come and go with the passing of seasons, but since his first catwalk steps in 2010, the poster boy/girl of gender-bender modelling (and Out100 honoree) has managed to stay in the spotlight, becoming a true pop icon along the way.
In the latest issue of Galore, a new fashion magazine for the "downtown" girl, the Bosnian-Australian model poses for Jacob Dekat and sits down with Galore Features Editor Alex Catarinella to reflect on his career and talk about his future projects.
Pejic goes back on his experience working with Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in the singer's latest video. "Bowie is so lovely and so down to earth", Pejic tells Galore. "We discussed my background and world politics mainly. He was so thankful that we were participating, but it was more like 'No, thank you!'"
In the interview, the model confesses his dream to appear on the cover of American Vogue, and talks about making his acting debut in a short film that might take him to the Cannes Film Festival. Pejic also tells Galore that he won both prom king and queen in high school ("I was in with the popular slutty girls! It made for great fun") and reveals a secret ability for... tying cherry stems into a knot with his tongue.
