This Hot New Model Has a Shocking Secret

Beauty & Style 47

Andrej PejicAustralian Andrej Pejic is one of the hottest models on the fashion scene right now.

You'll be seeing a lot more of Andrej's lovely face soon, in Jean Paul Gaultier's spring ad campaign and in the new Marc by Marc Jacobs ads.

When you see photos of this beauty, who has appeared in the pages of French and Italian Vogue, you may be struck by Andrej's enviable cheekbones or gorgeous long blond hair.

But there's something about Andrej that's a little ... different.

And you've got to see it to believe it.

Click through to find out what I'm talking about.

Andrej is a dude.

And that photo never fails to surprise me!

Herald SunYes, ladies, 19-year-old Andrej is at the forefront of a new modeling trend -- guys who look like girls. And while I've seen plenty of androgynous-looking male models, Andrej may very well take the cake.

And I'd love to know what you think of this latest development.

We've all gotten used to impossibly tall, size-0 glamazons modeling our clothes for us. How do you feel about seeing your potential clothing, hair, and makeup purchases on ... men?

Do you view Andrej's newfound popularity as a cool, inclusive new development for the fashion industry? Or is this latest trend simply ridiculous?

It's very disturbing.  If he is going to model as a female, I really don't think he should appear shirtless.  It is creepy, in a pedophile kind of way.  Like you are looking at a sexy girl who hasn't matured yet.  Really disgusting and creepy.

Ridiculous unless they are marketing the clothes to transexuals.

At first I thought it was a breast cancer survivor and then I thought 'that's pretty cool" and then I realized it was a dude and a little weirded out like micheledo said.

Well...most female models don't really look any more like a typical, average woman than he does so...much ado about nothing?

Really disturbing and more proof that designers don't design clothes for "real" women's bodies!

Madel... MadelynMc

It's kind of strange to me, but I wouldn't go so far as to call it disgusting. That's a little rude.

disturbing is right.

Meh, I don't look any more like him than I do any other model, I don't care either way.

Kate Levin

Really annoying. Just a straight-up admission that they've idealized such an un-feminine body type that it's actually male. Disgusting. Degrading.

Princess Ballerina

Not surprising or shocking. He needs to work out some more though lol.
