Andrej Pejic has had an unusual career as a model as he also models women's wear thanks to his androgynous looks. The scout who spotted Pejic on a street in Melbourne, Australia, initially thought Pejic was a woman. Now Pejic models both men's and women's clothes. Recently he even sported a wedding dress at Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s haute couture show in Paris.
