We’ve known this for a while, but Lea T‘s interview with Models.com confirms it: she’s really, really awesome. We can’t wait for the transgender model‘s appearance on Oprah, and Lea’s most recent interview gives some amazing insight into her life.
We adored the first version of Lea T‘s LOVE cover — the one where she was kissing Kate Moss. The gender play was a perfect fit for the mag’s androgyny issue, and the photo was stunning. Now it looks like Lea was also given a solo cover (à la Justin Bieber). Not surprisingly, she looks great.
First came the ad campaigns, then the magazine covers and now the runway shows. Transgender model and Riccardo Tisci muse Lea T took her first walk down the runway last night, at the Alexandre Herchcovitch show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week. This means all sorts of things for the native Brazilian.
We’ve told you all about how much we love Lea T, so we’re happy to report that she has scored her first magazine cover. The Riccardo Tisci muse starred in Givenchy‘s fall/winter 2010 ad campaign and posed nude for French Vogue, but her first cover is a real coup for the transgender model.
