Transgender Supermodel Andreja Pejic continues to make monumental strides in the fashion and beauty industry. She is out to prove that she can too model like any other female in the industry. The latest to show support for Andreja, is that of British style magazine The Love Magazine and specifically, the founder and EIC, Katie Grand. Andreja is featured in a four page spread in the latest issue for ‘Love 14 The Talents’ Autumn/Winter 2015 issue that just hit stands.
The incredible spread that was shot in London and was styled by Katie herself, along with being photographed by Solve Sunsbo and the interview by Jack Sunnucks. By having the support of Love and Katie is just another solidification to her blooming career as a woman. Recently Andreja made history and has been at the forefront of the current societal awareness that the transgender community is experiencing. She was the first transgender model to be profiled in Vogue America, the first transgender model to land a cosmetic campaign with Make Up For Ever, the first transgender model to walk the runway with Taylor Swift for her 1989 Tour and now this incredible Love spread.
About Andreja Pejic
Andreja Pejic is an Australian model. Pejić is a transgender woman, who until 2014 was billed as an androgynous male model, self-described as living "in between genders". Pejić was scouted as a model just before her 17th birthday while working at McDonald's, but she has also claimed 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 of January 2011, Pejić walked both the men's and women's shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men's shows for Marc Jacobs. In May 2011, her magazine cover for the New York-based magazine Dossier Journal—in which Pejić is pictured taking off a white shirt with long blond locks in curlers—was ruled too risqué by US bookstores Barnes & Noble and Borders, which covered the image with an opaque sleeve. Concerns were expressed that customers would read Pejić as a topless woman.
