For those who don't know Andrej Pejic (It's a guy)

I'm still thinking there is something not right about this. The fashion industry has embraced it with open arms. I guess I'm old fashion but I still think it's fasle advertising. Oh yeah women how do you feel about a dude that can walk the runway and wear a dress better than you.. lol
MELBOURNE's androgynous modeling superstar, Andrej Pejic, has blurred fashion's boundaries again, appearing on the catwalk in Paris in a haute couture bridal gown.

The 19-year-old from Broadmeadows created a sensation when he closed the Jean-Paul Gaultier womenswear show dressed as a bride, complete with a mohawk, black veil and long black gloves.

The gender-bending turn, in front of guests including French Vogue boss Emmanuelle Alt and actor Catherine Deneuve, came after Pejic closed Gaultier's menswear show last week dressed as a woman.

Pejic, who has been dubbed "James Blond", is also the face of Gaultier's new advertising campaign and appears in the latest Marc Jacobs campaign.

His look has made him one of the fashion scene's most popular new stars, according to Matthew Anderson, director of Pejic's Australian agency, Chadwick Models.

"The success and embracement of Andrej in the fashion world has been phenomenal," Anderson said. "No one is pretending that this is the new norm, but what Andrej is doing is providing a canvas for designers who have always pushed boundaries.

"I have about 60 requests in my inbox from around the world wanting a piece of Andrej."

Pejic was born in Bosnia "two months before the war started" and moved with family to Australia when he was nine.
