Andreja Pejic, The First Transsexual Model to Appear on The Cover of The Magazine Vogue USA

The transsexual model Andreja Pejic has just elected by Make Up For Ever mark so that it becomes in his new face. A significant step within the beauty industry. Perhaps the name still not you sound too (even though you have given that talk in recent months), but already you can see here a few months, we see his face in the soup, because in addition to having signed this important contract with much prestige brand, also it will be the first transsexual in appear on cover of Vogue USA magazine photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, on the initiative of Anna Wintour.

Quite an achievement for this model of Australian citizenship, but serbosnia (born in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1991) descent who spent his childhood in a refugee camp and that, since she was discovered at age 17, has been done, on its own merits, a site in the world of fashion.

This young woman can feel very proud of his entire career. In 2010 he signed with the London agency Storm Model, but until that date had been a man. However, by being so androgynous, it marched as well when presenting collections male or female. Jean Paul Gaultier was set on it, and became the protagonist of one of his fashion shows. Marc Jacobs did not hesitate to follow his example. Since then, they rain down contracts.

The most curious is that in September 2011, Andreja Pejić ranked number 18 on the list of the Top 50 male models and, also, put number 98 of the magazine FHM, but as… one of the women the world sexiest!!

In July, 2014, Andreja Pejic announced on his Facebook account to exchange your name Andrej by of Andreja Pejic, preserving Andrej Letter J; also It announced that it would be submitted to gender reassignment and admitted being a trans woman.

The news of his appearance on the next cover of Vogue USA magazine has published the same Andreja in its Instagram account a week ago, and next to the photo that opens the post has written the following text:

If at the beginning of my career, or just a year ago, I had been told I was going to star in 4 pages of the magazine Vogue USA never would have believed it. In fact, many people assured me that the possibilities that had come out in the magazine were practically nil. So now you can imagine how I feel at the moment. Thank you #AnnaWintour, #TonneGoodman, #PatrickDemarchelier and #HelenaSuric for making history and for allowing me to be part of it, but still more important for representing a social minority, and one often forgotten community of women in important publication, and open the doors to make the rest of the fashion industry. Also want to thank my agency #thesocietynyc for all of your support. And mention that the makeup owe to #Yadim and to @shayashual hair.

It is not the first time that the model appears on the cover of a magazine that is a reference in the sector. In 2012 he did for the Serbian Edition of ELLE magazine, but as a man. It is clear for Andreja appear in the edition of American Vogue magazine cover woman is what has marked a before and an after. Undoubtedly an example for many people, and all a reference, don’t you think?
