Andrej Pejic : The male model taking over from the girls
Published 27/01/2011 | 15:14
Watch out girls, there's a new top model in town and he's after your jobs.
He's the male model of the moment, starring in the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign and being shot by Steven Meisel and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for French and Italian Vogues.
But 19-year old Andrej Pejic is not your usual male model as you can see from these pictures showing his two starring turns on the catwalk this past week for Jean Paul Gaultier.
The beautiful hourglass bride at the finale of Gaultier's haute couture show in Paris, resplendent in ruffled tulle and feather headdress? Pejic. The gorgeous blonde Veronica Lake ringer in gold and furs at Gaultier's menswear show? Pejic again.
And Gaultier's spring 2011 campaign stars Pejic too, this time smooching with model Karolina Kurkova in matching pleated trench coats and fishnet tights.
Models.com ranks Bosnia - Herzegovina born Pejic as the 16th most influential male model of the moment, but the way things are going with his career, he's stealing a march on the girls too.
