Andreja Pejić Just Snagged a Major Makeup Deal
Last year, high-fashion Australian model Andreja (formerly Andrej) Pejić made the brave decision to publicly come out as a transgender woman. The runway favourite (and a muse of Jean Paul Gaultier) underwent reassignment surgery, transitioning from male to female. She also officially changed her name from Andrej to Andreja. This was a milestone for the LGBT community, as well as a major step for the fashion and beauty industries. Since then, she's landed Vogue features, been declared one of the faces of Make Up For Ever, and created a movie. After fundraising nearly $65,000 on Kickstarter (with the help of Jared Leto, who shared a message of support), the model will be sharing her story of transitioning in a film titled Andrej(a): The Documentary. She hopes the documentary will be released in 2016.
Andreja proves that runway hotness (and hautness!) knows no bounds. Not only do we envy her courage, but we also covet her rocker-chic beauty style. Scroll through to see her top looks since she broke onto the scene in 2010.
