And she's looking fierce!
Transgender model Lea T made her first runway appearance since undergoing sexual reassignment surgery.
She took to the catwalk in São Paulo, Brazil Saturday night where she modeled in the Elle Brazil's 24th anniversary show.
Last year, she sat down with Oprah about her plans to have surgery:
"Of course physically, this operation is a big operation…But at the same time, I think it’s mental too. To think like, 'Wow, I cut part of my body.'"
No matter what, she's still going to be a big hit in the fashion world. Look at those cheekbones!

Lea T is still making a name for herself in the fashion world.
After getting her big break in Givenchy ads, the transgender model is set to appear in the new Blue Man swimwear campaign.
The summer ads were shot by Terry Richardson this past Monday on the sandy beaches of Rio where she was constantly surrounded by half naked men.

The claws have officially come out!
Androgynous model Andrej Pejic believes he's more versatile than transgender model Lea T.
"I don’t think my situation and Lea T's are completely different when it comes to our personal lives but that’s personal, for me at least. And I really think people should stop trying to categorize me because of their need for labels.
When it comes to our professional lives, well she only does women’s wear and I think I cover more fields. Some people in the industry will use us in a very similar way to represent similar ideas and some will want me to be a bit different from her — more androgynous, more boyish or even sex-less rather than womanly. I think professionally I am capable of being very versatile."
Your move, Lea.

On Thursday, transgender model and Givenchy muse Lea T made her highly anticipated appearance on Oprah.
The interview was fascinating, inspiring and heartwarming, especially when Lea reveals to O her father said he could die happy after she walked in Alexandre Herchcovitch’s show in Sao Paulo earlier this month.
Check out Lea's interview in the clip (above)!
P.S. Fast forward to the 3:50 for Oprah awkwardness.
