Casey Legler Page 1
There aren’t many models that can say they scored their first Vogue shoot at age 36, but then Casey Legler is not most models. After posing as a favor for a photographer friend, the former Olympic swimmer became the first woman ever to sign to Ford’s male model division late last year. Not only did she start booking jobs in no time flat, but Legler also made headlines for her convention-flouting looks and refreshing attitude towards gender and the fashion industry. Now, it looks like our favorite model of the moment can even count Anna Wintour as a fan.
If we had longer arms, we’d reach right across the Atlantic and give the Observer a high five for their latest feature: a lengthy profile and photo spread starring Casey Legler, the first woman ever to be signed to the men’s board at Ford Models.
