The transformation is remarkable, if only because it simply took dark eye shadow, heavy eyeliner and a nice neutral lip gloss.
He makes the look with those oh so feminine fingers, ruby red nail polish and his girlish grip on a cigarette.
Pejic has caused an uproar on fashion runways and magazine covers because of his androgynous looks. But is he truly a ground-breaking model or simply an oddity?

Pejic’s femininity caused Barnes & Noble and Borders books stores to ban magazine Dossier Journal because he appeared shirtless on the cover.
The books stores said that the 20-year-old might be mistaken for a woman and shielded the very sight of him in a brown wrapper.
“You can’t eat much if you want to do this,” the reed-thin 6’2″ Pejic said in a recent interview.
“To do womenswear I have to be disciplined. My waist has gone from 29 to 25 inches and my hips are 35 inches.”
In addition to a low-calorie diet, Andrej does cardio workouts to stay thin, not to build muscle.
“Not that I’ve ever wanted to [bulk up], but most female models don’t have any muscle mass,” he has said. “It’s a delicate state to be in.”
Pejic’s success is raising eyebrows not only for gender-bending, but for the suggestion that women need to look like skinny men with a small waist, no hips and a flat chest to walk major fashion shows.
Andrej, who burst onto the fashion scene when he walked both the men’s and women’s shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier in Paris in January, dismisses media attempts to pigeonhole him.
“I don’t want to be a girl, but I like to dress as a girl,” he said.
“I’m not sure how the girls [models] feel about me,” he added. “They’re very competitive.”
Pejic, who won’t reveal whether he’s gay or not, has been coy about his gender identity.
“Sometimes I feel like more of a woman, other times I feel male,” he has said.
“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.”
