Andrej Pejic is not your typical male model. Standing at 6-foot 1-inch, Pejic is an androgynous male model who sometimes poses as a man and at other times a woman. With long white blonde hair and bright blue eyes, he draws admiring glances from men who don't know he is actually a man.
As the only current top-tier model who can walk in either menswear or womenswear, Andrej Pejic is one of the most in-demand faces in the biz. But question is -- will he walk in New York Fashion Week 2012?
Andrej Pejic was the face of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2011 line. In the ad campaigns, the blonde poses in a sun-drenched scene in slouchy denim shorts and a striped T-shirt with his blonde hair in loose waves. The designer will be showing at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 14 at the Armory. His show will be live streamed online as well.
Will the beautiful androgynous blond walk in Jacobs' show as one of the most recognizable and most controversial faces in fashion today? Pejic might just be Jacobs' ticket to the most fabulous (and most memorable) Fall 2012 shows of Fashion Week.
In 2011, Pejic was on the cover of a whopping 14 magazines, according to Fox News. That is impressive work for even the top Victoria's Secret models. His most controversial cover yet was the Fall Preview issue of New York Magazine, out in August. On the cover shot, Pejic was dolled up in smokey make-up and topless. His bare, male chest was a stark contrast to the stunning feminine face looking coyly at the camera.
The Bosnia-born model turned heads when he posed for a push-up bra ad campaign for the Dutch company Hema. At the time, Pejic's agent, Joseph Tenni, said, It's revolutionary... I've never known a man to do a women's lingerie campaign before.
Revolutinary he certainly is.
So will the beautiful and extraordinary Anrej Pejic walk in New York Fashion Week 2012? Only a few more days will tell.
