Lea T. covers Elle Brasil in Givenchy.

'Tis the season for gender-bending!

On the heels of Andrej Pejic's bridal turn for the cover of Out comes the December issue of Elle Brasil, which stars transgendered model Lea T. (Eat your heart out, Gisele.)

The native Brazilian does her country proud with the striking portfolio, sporting long, center-parted hair, smoky eyes, and a tropical ensemble from Givenchy's Fall 2011 collection, the fashion house that put her on the map.

Inside, photographer Fabio Bertelt snaps the unconventional beauty—who memorably smooched Kate Moss for a Love cover earlier this year—in ultra-glam black and red sequins.

A behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot can be viewed online.
