This Man Is The First To Cover Serbian "Elle"

The famously androgynous model Andrej Pejic lends his “do me” face to the cover of a “mainstream” fashion magazine for the first time.

1. Here’s Andrej Pejic’s January cover of Serbian “Elle.”

The Bosinan Australian model is dressed entirely in Jean Paul Gaultier, one of his earliest and biggest supporters. The headline reads: “Boy who shook the fashion world.”

2. This is not Pejic’s first cover — he previously appeared on the summer 2012 issue of “i-D.”

This booking is hardly peanuts — models like Naomi Campbell and Gisele regularly cover i-D.

3. He also posed for the September cover of “L’Officiel.”

4. And a 2011 cover of “New York” magazine.

5. When he posed topless on the cover of “Dossier” magazine, Barnes & Nobles and Borders censored his nipples.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief told reporters that the bookstores were aware of Pejic’s gender, but decided to censor his bare chest anyway.

6. Pejic has also walked in some of the fashion industry’s Most Important runway shows (Gaultier’s, namely).

Here he is modeling a dress (though I suppose that’s open to interpretation) in Gaultier’s fall 2012 couture show.

And here is is on Gaultier’s runway again for the spring 2012 couture show.

8. Pejic also appeared in a Gaultier ad kissing fellow blond, long-haired babe Karoline Kurkova.

You might know Karolina best from her Victoria’s Secret days. Clearly she’s one of the best things that ever happened to textured panties.

9. Pejic also appeared, rather controversially, in a campaign for a push-up bra.

Many felt the campaign — for Dutch store Hema — exploited to an extreme degree the fashion industry’s troubling ideal of the female form: boyishly slender, completely free of hips and breasts. And we’ve all seen Pejic’s assets so it’s hard to argue his body represents anything else.

10. Pejic is also filming a reality show.

Fashionista confirmed the news over the summer, when the show was in its very early stages. This video is an interview with Pejic by the Cut’s model correspondent James Lim, but gives you something to be excited about while waiting for the show to debut.
