Andrej Pejic

Andreja Pejić, an Australian trans model, was scouted just before her 17th birthday while working at McDonald's, although she has also said in an interview that she was scouted at a swimming pool while still in high school in Melbourne. Pejić was initially notable for modelling both masculine and feminine clothing. In the Paris fashion shows, Pejić walked both the men's and women's shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men's shows for Marc Jacobs. At the Stylenite in 2011, Pejić appeared on the catwalk both in masculine and feminine clothes from Michalsky. The following year, she modeled bridal creations by Spanish designer Rosa Clara at Barcelona's Bridal Week. In 2011 Pejić ranked No. 18 on the models.com Top 50 Male Models list, was named one of Out's Most Compelling People, and was ranked No. 98 in FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011. In 2012, Pejić appeared as a guest judge on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model. In 2013 Pejić appeared alongside Iselin Steiro, Saskia de Brauw, Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in the video for Bowie's 2013 single "The Stars." Later that year, she made her acting debut playing Radu the Beautiful in the short-lived Turkish TV series Fatih. Pejić became the first openly transgender model profiled by Vogue, in its May 2015 issue.
