In other news, have you seen the new face of Marc Jacobs?

Andrej Pejic is a 19-year-old Serbian model, and his claim to fame is that he’s flying the flag for androgyny (once again). I, for one, love when fashion pushes the boundaries of what we think, or what we expect, and I would love to see models as representatives of a beauty that crosses genders, body types and so on – but I would caution against heralding this as a new dawn, as designers have been known to use plus-size models, short models, people of miniature stature (John Galliano), in one show, and quickly reverting to the “norm” for the next. Watch this space . . .
