Interview with Amazing Beautiful Model

Do you recall when I interviewed actor Channing Tatum that I utilized an ingenious aluminum foil headpiece I created to read his mind? Well this brain-wave method worked so well I have used it again. Now I am happy to report to you the result of my recent interview with an amazing and very beautiful model, Andrea Pejic.

This lovely-looking young supermodel has caused a major stir in the fashion world and is now in constant demand for fashion runway shows, photo shoots and magazine covers.

me – I sense you are wearing your foil cap, Andrea, and I appreciate your taking the time to chat with me today.

Andrea – It’s my pleasure, drbj. But . . .

me(interrupting) The pleasure is mine. Tell me a little about your early years.

Andrea – I was born August 28, 1991 in Tuzla, the Socialist Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina (Yugoslavia).

me – I know exactly where that is because I had the pleasure of visiting that area back in the 80s. The countryside was magnificent – beautiful valleys nestled below snow-covered mountains.

A. Pejic

Andrea – My mother, Jadranka Savic, is Serbian and my father, Vlada Pejic, Croatian. They were divorced soon after I was born. During the Bosnian War, my family (mother, brother, grandmother and myself) fled to Serbia and settled in a refugee camp near Belgrade.

me – Did you have a difficult childhood?

Andrea – Not really. I was a very happy child. The camp was like a small community. I remember playing outside and I had many girlfriends. My memories are quite carefree.

After the camp we settled in Vojska, a small village near Svilajnac. I met my father then for the first time when I was four years old. My mother wanted my brother, Igor, and myself to have a relationship with our father so the two of us would spend a month every summer with him.

me – I know you and your family moved to Melbourne, Australia as political refugees when you were eight years old.

Andrea – Yes, that was a result of the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999 – my mother felt we were no longer safe there.

Modeling

me – How did you begin your career as a model?

Andrea – I was working in McDonald’s in Melbourne. I know what you’re thinking. Yes, I often was the one working behind the counter who asked, “Do you want fries with that?”

A booker for a model agency was impressed with my delicate, pouty, fresh-faced looks. I was told I was ‘absurdly beautiful.’ I began to model in Australia and I signed on with Storm Models in 2010.

My debut was closing the Jean Paul Gaultier spring fashion show in Paris. You better believe that was a heady achievement for me at the age of 19.

me – You know, Andrea, the first time I saw your photo, I thought you were one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen.

Andrea – Photographers seem to appreciate my deceptively delicate looks although they do comment often on how thin I am. BTW . . .

me(interrupting) In the Paris fashion shows in January of 2011 you accomplished something few models – if any – have ever done.

You walked the runway for both the men’s and women’s shows for designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, and the men’s shows for Marc Jacobs.

Andrea – I believe I am in demand because I possess the rare ability to model successfully both male and female clothing.

me – That’s known as being androgynous.

Andrea – Exactly! And because I can walk the catwalk (runway) for both women’s clothing and menswear, I double my chances of landing work and earning money.

me – I know you have appeared in a number of European fashion magazines: French Vogue, Italian Vogue, Japanese Vogue Hommes, to name a few.

When were you introduced to American fashionistas?

Andrea – I first appeared on the cover of the new-York based magazine, Dossier Journal. The photo shows me taking off a white shirt with my long blonde locks in curlers.

It was ruled too risqué by the Barnes and Noble bookstores. They insisted on covering my image with an opaque plastic sleeve.

meHow old-fashioned!

Andrea – That’s true. Did you know that FHM men’s magazine named me one of the ‘100 Sexiest Women in the World’ in 2011? Isn’t that amazing?

me – What’s equally amazing is that models.com ranked you as number 19 on their ‘Top 50 Male Models’ list, and French Vogue gave you the title of Male Model of the Year (2011).

Andrea – Isn’t that a kick in the head? "I am currently one of the world’s most famous male models and I have absolutely no regrets that most people think I am a woman."

me – Say what? People ‘think you are a woman’?

Are you saying you are NOT a woman?

Andrea – I am a male individual of the masculine persuasion.

I just happen to be six feet tall, very thin, and with the face of an angelic beautiful woman.

I thought you knew.

BTW, I have been trying to tell you something. You have been misspelling my name.

It is Andrej, a masculine name ending in a ‘j’. NOT Andrea ending in an ‘a’.

me – Forgive me, Andrej, for using that form of literary license to make my point.

I wanted readers to see you as I first saw you – a beautiful, very feminine, almost ethereal-looking model, with full lips, high cheekbones and a waif-like expression.

Andrej Pejic

Andrej – I understand. No apology is necessary. As I said, I have become a famous male model and I have no regrets that most people think I am a woman.

Androgyny has made me famous and well-paid. My gender duality is financially advantageous.

me – Because you can work as both a male and female model?

Andrej – Yes, and because traditionally, female supermodels earn much, much more than males.

me – You got that right. You are intelligent beyond your young age as well as exceptionally attractive.

Tell me, Andrej, what would you say to those who see you as controversial?

Andrej – Any controversy I provoke may be part of my appeal. In an interview with New York Magazine, I said – this is a direct quote – “I’m sure most people think of me as a woman. It doesn't bother me anymore and I feel fine about it … I don't consider my looks unusual."

I've left my gender open to artistic interpretation. I don't really have that sort of strong gender identity – I identify as what I am. The fact that people are using it for creative or marketing purposes, it's just kind of like having a skill and using it to earn money. This is a new age of androgynous supermodels.”

me – Thank you for being so open and candid. What is your greatest wish for the future?

Andrej“Since I am comfortable modeling both men's and women’s wear, I aspire one day to model for Playboy.”

me – I’ll try to contact Hefner, one way or another, to make your dream come true. Ciao, Andrej, and good luck in your career.

      Knowing that you enjoy my interview series makes my labor worthwhile. Perhaps one day I will put all these Dead Celebrity and Weird Animal interviews into a couple of hard-cover books. Thanks for your promise of PR - you are the BEST!

      No one does it quite like you - from the presentation of this interview series right down to your very own inimitable wit and style.

      It's always a treat to read your eclectic style and not only fun but also enlightening and educational too.

      This interview series deserves an anthology in hard cover and I will promote your brilliance as a writer and a creator on my FB wall for everyone to see and read.

      Hi, Suzie. He IS a stunning model, isn't he. Many women would kill for his looks. He admits that some photographers say he is too thin but thin always allows clothing to drape better than not thin - one of the reasons that most famous fashion designers prefer almost anorexic-looking models to show their designs.

      Wouldn't it have been a blast to find him serving you behind a counter in McDonalds? Thanks for the Interesting, the Up, and the Sharing, m'dear.

      Well, you've shown us yet again that your interview skills are not to be overlooked! Not only was your interview interesting and well put together but you held the surprise for the end. It is still hard to believe this model is a man but there are other things in this world that are hard to believe too ;)

      Delighted I took you by surprise, Break of Dawn, since that was my mission. I wanted readers to see Andrej as I first saw him - a beautiful feminine-looking model.

      Since you asked, when he is not modeling he wears casual men's clothing - jeans and cotton shirts. Thanks for finding this absorbing, the Up vote and the sharing.

      Well, the ending sure took me by surprise. I have to admit, I though I had missed something and had to scroll back up to read it again, lol. He is absolutely stunning! Excuse my befuddlement but I must ask a dumb question; in his private life, is he dressed as a woman or man? Thank you for a most absorbing read. Voted up and shared!

      I agree, Cogerson, a 'confusing' button might be most appropriate for this hub about Andrej. He is certainly not the expected image of a women's fashions supermodel. Yet in addition to his beautiful appearance there is a certain sweetness to him when he is interviewed. Sorry about the confusion, but many thanks for your visit.

      I must admit.....I got confused while reading your hub so I had to do a quick check on wikipedia.....to copy a previous commetor....Holy Cow.....pretty impressive accomplishment to be considered one of the best male and female models. Voted up and interesting and confusing...I think this hub needs a confusing button....lol.

      How I love your visits, Alastar. You always remind me of something pleasant from the past. Yes, I remember Schwab's in L.A. And I remember Lana Turner, the beautiful blonde actress, was discovered (they say) sitting on a stool at the soda fountain there.

      To answer your query, Andrej is most definitely a male and he seems to be comfortable with men and women. However, he says he wants to keep details of his private life private so I respect that. I enjoyed being the interlocutor and thank you for the Up and stuff, my friend.

      Maybe McDonalds is the new international Schwab's Drugstore. You remember that Hollywood icon spot don't you, drbj ? Andrea is a beautiful Slav person whom fortune has shined on. Making the men's and women's lists- what i'd like to know is he/she one or the other or something in-between- oh lordy, AP is getting confused this mornin'. Anyway a different kind of interview drbj, thanks for being our interlocutor with the supermodel. Up n stuff as always!

      You are absolutely correct, Nell, a person's hands can reveal a lot - male, female, young, old, etc. Interesting that you mentioned neck and shoulders as body parts that reveal gender. Andrej confided that his shoulders are the one part of his body he is not happy with.

      I'm not surprised, Martie, that these photos of Andrej were mind-blowing - they knocked me out, too. I have seen beautiful men before but never anyone so beautiful who looked like a genuine angelic woman. Bet most folks are fooled by his appearance.

      I am not surprised, Amy, that your perceptive eye saw the strength as well as the remarkable beauty in Andrej's face in the first photo.

      As a Vogue subscriber you are already aware of the value of that which is different and often outrageous in the world of fashion, and as you point out, androgeny is 'in' at the moment. Ordinary is out; otherworldly is in.

      Thank you, m'luv, for using that exceptional adjective to describe my interview and Andrej. And 'extraordinary magnificence'? My cup runneth over.

      drbj and sherry 5 years ago from south Florida

      Very funny, Lela. Actually, as I think about it, 'androgynous' would be a perfect name for swimwear that both men and women could wear. The only difference - for men, it would be one piece - like a Speedo - and for women, two piece - like a bra and a thong. Whatcha think? Only drawback, all who wear them would have to be as slender as Andrej.

      I have been thinking about your suggestion to interview Jack Reacher. Will decide when that Tom Cruise movie version of his book arrives in the theaters.

      What sublime comments, dear bp, thank you. You are on the mark with your description of Andrej. He does seem to be comfortable in his dual persona and 'that is a beautiful thing.' How I love your adjectives - fantastic, interesting, awesome and Up. Thank you again.

      You are not the only one who was surprised, Audrey. I had the same 'Holy cow!' reaction when I read a news article about Andrej. With photos.

      Although he IS a man, he walks and moves with feminine grace when modeling womenswear. And whatever he models, he is beautiful.

      You asked if he will model swimsuits. Probably not since he lacks the necessary cleavage for women's suits, and may be too thin for the male versions.

      Although I could see some savvy swim suit manufacturers marketing an Andrej suit that consists of only a thong bottom for men AND women who like to sun on the famous European nude beaches but still display a bit of modesty. That would certainly start a whole new trend.

Andrej is the first man I've ever seen looking like a real woman in woman's clothes. As you know, transvestites are clearly identifiable - with my eyes - but Andrej could have fooled me. I wish him all of the best success and happiness in his career and personal life. Awesome interview, as always!

      I kind of wondered, drbj, when I saw the top photo; something about the eyebrows and the strength of the bone structure, delicate and fine, but strong. But, it only takes one glance to see the remarkable beauty in his face. I subscribe to Vogue and see many outrageously beautiful people throughout the pages that capitalize on a uniquely androgenous beauty. It's no secret that every art form today, from painting to fashion to writing demands beyond perfectly ordinary to otherworldly. Your interview and your subject, model Andrej Pejic, both achieve those otherworldly standards of extraordinary magnificence.

      Now that I look at her more, she does look decidedly more male--how could someone get blessed with BOTH sexes' looks? That seems kinda unfair but ah well---we all can't be beautiful on the outside~ Most decidedly very interesting piece, BJ.

      Lela 5 years ago from Somewhere in the universe

      I thought androgynous was a name for swim wear! Perhaps that was hydrogenous. I forget so many things these days. At any rate it appears that mr/ms Andrej could wear either one. She would look so strange in a male speedo though.

      I think you should interview Jack Reacher soon.

      Holy cow, BJ - you got me---for real? I really need to tune into television and/or read the Internet more often---I guess whatever he/she wears is fine since he/she is beautiful---isn't that the way things go? I wonder though--will he model swimsuits--and if so, for what "team?" Interesting! I've not seen many women with bulges in all the wrong places modeling swimsuits but it could start a whole new trend! Yikes~~ Me thinks I'm having a personal summer over that remark~

      How nice to meet you, ignugent. What a nice comment: 'like watching a talk show.' Exactly what I hoped you would say. Delighted you were as surprised as I was when I first encountered him. Andrej appears to be happy - for now.

      If you like surprises take a look at my 'Interview with Martian.'

      Thanks, Pamela, for enjoying the twist at the end, and for the kind comments. Yes, Andrej is painfully thin but that seems to be what the dress manufacturers prefer in their supermodels, male and female. Seems clothes 'hang' better when there are less curves to get in the way. Happy you enjoyed the fun.

      I know you must be a style maven, Petra, so I am not surprised that you knew Andrej's story. I'll just have to dream up another twisty story with a 'gotcha' for you.

      Andrej appears to be one supermodel who is quite clear-headed about both himself and how others view him. I admire his independent spirit.

      It is nice to read about someone who defies labeling.

      I hope he has great success. He deserves it.

      It is like watching a talk show. I was surprised at the end of the interview. I do hope she or he is happy with the life she/he has.

      Thanks for sharing.

      This is a very interesting article with quite a twist at he end. You did your usual fantastic job in writing it. As far as I am concerned, she or he looks anorexic, which I consider unattractive. That didn't stop the article from being fun to read.

      You did not get me on this one with your famous twists at the end. I did know the story of this super-model and good for him to have such a clear mind about who he is and I admire his business sense (letting anyone "see" what they want to see.
