Meet Andreja Pejic.
Featured in Vogue earlier this year, she is the first transgendered model to be appear in the fashion magazine.
“If at the beginning of my career in the modeling industry, or half way through it, or even this time last year, you told me that I would end up have a 4 page feature in American Vogue, I would have probably told you ‘Oh I don’t know about that! That might be a bit difficult to achieve in the near future,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “In fact, I was told by various people many times over that the chances of me ending up on these pages were slim to none.”
In addition to being the first transgendered model to be in the publication, Pejic is also the first LGBTQ member to land a make-up contract. She is the newest face for beauty brand Make Up For Ever.
The model posted on her Instagram, giving everyone a sneak peak of her newest campaign.
“Landing a cosmetics contract is a huge deal for any model — it’s sort of the Oscars of the fashion world,” Pejic told People. “And this is a brand that matches what I’ve tried to portray in my career: The message has always been about being okay to be yourself and living a truthful life, being able to express yourself. It’s okay to be different.”
