The Black Magazine Spring/Summer 2012 photoshoot featuring the androgynous model Andrej Pejic displays some of the most iconic mother monster looks. Lady Gaga has been known for her love of eccentric headgear, studs, leather and unthinkably high heels, and Pejic has taken on these very looks in this editorial.
This Black Magazine editorial was executed by photographer Mariah Jelena. Jelena’s artistic vision has contributed to Pejic’s distinctive ability to blur the lines between male and female looks. And while Pejic has been known for just this, his incorporation of starlet motifs into his ensembles delivers it in a new way. Both have been known for their willingness to overcome societal boundaries, and though they speak to different audiences, both have been successful where this is concerned.
