Andrej Pejic took the fashion world by storm, establishing gender bending beauty as more then just a trend.

From modeling push-up bras to bridal couture, Pejic reinvented the concept of androgyny, spurring more and more fashion names to jump on the gender bending bandwagon.

Saint Laurent Paris, the re-branded ready-to-wear branch of the iconic Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, is the most recent brand to rework the classic male-female mold.

Chosen by creative director Hedi Slimane, Saskia de Brauw is set to front the campaign for Saint Laurent's first men's Spring 2013 collection.

The 31-year-old Dutch stunner, who appeared in Givenchy's Spring 2013 menswear show showcasing short hair and a strong bone structure, has particular delicate-yet-strong features that make her a natural for gender bending.

Known for his love of menswear for women, from slim trousers and masculine tailoring, Hedi Slimane seems to be taking the gender-neutral aesthetic and making it a signature for the newly re-envisioned Saint Laurent label.
