|Pejic was just cast in Yoana Baraschi's runway show.|
Yoana is known for her ultra-feminine frocks.
ANDREJ PEJIC is suddenly everywhere. Still in his teens (that's right, HIS), Pejic has already featured prominently in many runway shows, magazine editorials, and print ads. His two big 'gets':
Watch out for him (yep, HIM) in Marc Jacob's soft focus. stripe-heavy spring campaign:
He'll also be appearing in Jean Paul Gaultier's new ad campaign, with lookalike blondie Karolina Kurkova:
It's tough to tell the Czech supermodel apart from her costar, no? Pejic was born of Serbian-Croation parents, but the family fled their war ravaged homeland and settled as refugees in Australia. He (I know! I would kill for HIS lips) now catwalks in Paris and Milan. No wonder this confusingly cosmopolitan upbringing has the fashion world enthralled. I too adore anyone with a story or personality so unique it deflates the abstracted cliches that form the fashion industry and associated marketing, bringing it back down to me. Humanized.
I bet someday Andrej Pejic will be at the heart of actual debates. He'll function as a jumping off point, a pop culture reference in some tweedy professor's Powerpoint Presentation. Androgyny is nothing new in fashion. Yet, the extremes to which Pejic takes his look and the success he achieves because of (or in spite of) it, are an Emeritus-Professor-in-Sociology-with-a-focus-in-Gender-Studies' wet dream.
Wishing him (I tripled-checked and we're talking XY) all the best.
Now the boy just needs himself a Wikipedia entry.
