Hot new fashion model: She’s a He! Huh? WTF?



For those of you old enough to remember the TV show All In The Family, there was an episode where Archie Bunker (always one to exquisitely mangle the English language) called one of son-in-law Mike’s friends a “morphodite.” When Mike asked for a definition, Archie replied, “You know, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and not enough of neither.” This story (from JWF) describes a new modeling sensation from Australia – 19yo Andrej Pejic. It seems that this young “fella” (or bloke) is a hot commodity in the fashion industry. It looks like Andrej is more than “a little bit of that” to me. LOL!

AUSTRALIA’S latest red hot model export is slender and blond with a striking delicate beauty – and he is a bloke.

Andrej Pejic is the new face in modelling. Gone is the typical blond and blue eyed beauty. Now the world has extreme androgyny.

The 19-year-old has taken the international modelling scene by storm in the past six months, with his gender-bender appearance.

He is at the forefront of a new trend – the super feminine look for guys – or as it is being called, the femiman trend.

Pejic admitted he was often mistaken for a girl.

“Well that happens all the time – it kind of always has, it is kind of everyday life really,” he said. Since hitting the catwalks in Paris in June for top designers including Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, Pejic has appeared in French, Japanese, Turkish and Italian Vogue and has just shot his first global advertising campaign.

He jets out of his Melbourne home today bound for New York, where he has landed another lucrative advertising campaign – believed to be for one of Europe’s top fashion houses.

“It has been a whirlwind, but a glamorous whirlwind,” Pejic said.

Femiman? Huh? WTF?
