Lea T.....a Fashion First

For those of you who are not familiar with her, Lea T is a 28 year old model that was discovered by the senior designer at Givenchy.  She became the face of the brand in late 2010.  Her first runway show was for Alexandre Herchcovitch during São Paulo Fashion Week in January 2011.

She has been featured in editorials in Vogue Paris, Hercules Magazine, Interview Magazine, Cover Magazine and Love Magazine. In 2011, she was also the cover star of two editions of the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of Love Magazine, one as the solo model and another cover in which she was seen kissing supermodel Kate Moss.  
She is ranked 40th on the Top 50 Models Women List by
 That's a whole lot of accomplishments in such little time isn't it?  But that's not all, Lea T is a stunning and inspiring transgender model.  I think that her being supermodel in the making while being a transgender model truly means that our world is moving away from prejudice and accepting people for who they are.  It is a historic moment for the fashion industry. The fact that a transgender model is having so much success is an unprecedented event!

She is such a beautiful model, her dark looks are perfect for both editorials and for the runway.  Its such a wonderful thing that recognized brand such as Givenchy gave her a chance, without any judgements or prejudice!
