LEA T is beautiful!

GAKU was also stunning!

Andre J is bearded and less femme as Lea T or Gaku!
All have something in common, they’re MEN!
And all have modeled as WOMEN!

Lea T (Brazilian) is the latest guy to model as a girl in the high stakes world of fashion and makes the grades with campaigns such as GIVENCHY and the pages of FRENCH VOGUE! Gaku from Japan kept tongues wagging in the JIGSAW campaigns in the late 90’s, fashion magazines such as ID and television crews including E Entertainment and the English tabloids such as The INDEPENDENT gawking over his stunning lithe Japanese body as he saunters down the catwalks in Europe. Then in 2007, ANDRE J an African American stunned the fashion world when he graced the cover of FRENCH VOGUE in a blue dress, heels and Louise Brooks wig (with beard intact – and every other part)!

Then there are the others such as Amanda Lepore, Connie, etc who’s modeled for star photographer David LaChapelle and numerous lens men!
Then, there is a famous judge on a fashion program that is rumored to have walked the catwalks in the 80’s to early 90’s for Paris top fashion designers as a woman regale and all in every designer collection on the catwalks.

Now the world media celebrates LEA T also (but not as the first known guy to do so), let’s acknowledge those that were around before that held their heads high (make-up and hair also), heels intact and everything tucked away while prancing down the catwalks smiling like a Cheshire cat giving buyers, editors and Joe public a jolt of joie de vie!
