Last year, Andrej Pejic famously declared himself more “versatile” than transsexual model Lea T. — and if his recent stints for Jean Paul Gaultier are anything to go by, it’s true. Last year, Pejic walked in Gaultier’s men’s show before closing the designer’s couture show in a bridal gown. In February, Gaultier tapped him to be the new face of his men’s fragrance and Sunday, the gender-bending model walked in his supermodel-studded fall womenswear show.
