Andrej Pejic to Model in Yoana Baraschi's Fall 2011 Presentation
One thing’s for certain: It sure isn’t a drag being Andrej Pejic.
Fashion’s cross-dressing It boy/girl has landed himself yet another modeling gig and will strut his stuff in Yoana Baraschi’s Fall 2011 Fashion Week presentation.
The androgynous Serbian-Australian bombshell, who played a bride in Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall/Winter 2011-12 Haute Couture show in January, will don one of Baraschi’s signature feminine looks at her February 13 show at Lincoln Center’s The Box.
Baraschi tells FashionEtc her collection was inspired by “a digital-age adventure in a faux-real world where heightened nature becomes hyper-colored for a surreal effect.”
That faux reality includes ’70s-excess glam divas who morph into a virtual world of modern heroines, Baraschi said in a statement, adding that pretty Pejic “was the perfect choice to bring this heroine to life” and take the audience on the journey through Virtualand.
By all accounts, the delicately featured platinum blond is white hot at the moment. Besides his two recent runway stints, the 19-year-old has also landed two Spring 2011 campaigns, modeling for Marc by Marc Jacobs with lookalike Ginta Lapina and posing for Gaultier with double Karolina Kurkova.
It’s enough to put Daphne Groeneveld out of business!
