She's the first transgender model to get a beauty campaign!
And her ads are going to make you want to buy A LOT of makeup!!!

How progressive of them.
Gender bender model Andrej Pejic flawlessly covers Elle Serbia’s January issue, making him the first man to do so!

Inside the spread, Pejic continues being fierce in La Perla and Agent Provocateur lingerie and more JPG when he poses as a man.
This is just as good if not better than Andrej's Candy spread!
What do U think???
