Take THAT, Miss Universe Canada!!
Last year, Miss Universe contestant Jenna Talackova was disqualified from a Miss Universe Canada pageant for being born male — even though she had gender-reassignment surgery at age 19.
Her plight did not go unnoticed, however, and the model’s career has probably blossomed even further due to the unwarranted snub!
She is set to star in a Canadian reality show titled Brave New Girls, and is starting Elle Canada’s 2014 off right by snagging a spread in the mag’s January issue.
Jenna totally rocks the spread, and poses in couture like she was born to do exactly that. AH-mazing!!!
Can't wait to see more of this lovely lady in future spreads!!
