The Andrej Pejic New York Magazine September 2011 cover makes it pretty clear why one of this year's hottest female fashion models is a man. The Serbian Australian model is lensed by renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe for the issue, which includes an insightful interview with the hot new fashion superstar. Of his ambiguous appearance, Pejic explains, "It’s not like, ‘Okay, today I want to look like a man, or today I want to look like a woman. I want to look like me. It just so happens that some of the things I like are feminine."
Pejic made a splash in mainstream media when a cover of Dossier Journal that showed him topless was censored by Barnes and Noble and Borders stores in May 2011. While his androgynous appearance might be shocking to some, the fashion world has fully embraced it. I definitely welcome the Andrej Pejic New York Magazine cover with open arms, and can't wait to see more.
