Hm, let's see Kate Moss or Karlie Kloss pull this one off. While male models infamously make mere pennies compared to what their female counterparts make and get a fraction of the fame and recognition, the male model sensation Andrej Pejic -- who went from obscurity to infamy virtually overnight thanks to his androgynous appearance -- has a leg up over his female competition. You see, Pejic can channel femininity that trumps even the top lady-models hitting the catwalks, but can (obviously) pass for a moody, lanky, long-haired boy as well. Case in point? Pejic modeled two different looks for Lino Villaventura at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, but one look was a decidedly masculine suit and tie ensemble, while his second appearance found him in a gunmetal, shimmering pleated dress and matching heels. Looks like some of our more womanly runway regulars should feel a little nervous, Pejic has something to offer for everyone.
