Andrej Pejic: Blurring Gender Boundaries

February 23rd, 2011 // 1 Comment

Demanding that we take a second look, model Andrej Pejic‘s pictures make us wonder what boundaries could fashion possibly defy next? The hottest runway model of the moment, with his statuesque figure and impossibly small waistband, is in demand for men’s and women’s couture.

If Lady Gaga is making it difficult for ‘normal’ artists, imagine what Pejic will do for models. However, I appreciate the artistic advantage fashion is taking with this 19-year-old male verse any pictorial that’s done with MTV’s Skins. Seriously, is anyone watching that show?

“I’m comfortable doing both. Although womenswear is more glamorous. The clothes are more exciting. In menswear I have to work more at having a masculine presence. But then that’s my job. If they put me in, say, a rubbish bag and I feel completely unattractive, I still have to show it to its potential,” he said to The New York Times when asked if he preferred men’s or women’s fashion.

Pejic graced the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood during London Fashion Week Sunday. Whenever I think of Vivienne Westwood, I always think back to Carrie Bradshaw’s Sex & The City Vogue spread when she wore the Vivienne Westwood wedding gown. Totally appropriate as Pejic wore a wedding gown himself last month at Paris Fashion Week in the Jean Paul Gaultier couture show!
