Androgynous supermodel Andrej Pejic, TV star!
Gender-bending Australian supermodel Andrej Pejic looks set to become the fashion world's latest reality TV star, with a spokesperson for his modelling agency confirming that he's "in the early stages" of taping a show.
The androgynous male model sparked rumours of TV stardom last year when he tweeted, "Should I do a reality TV show? I mean what would I have to say." Then recently, rumours began circulating that the star was set to appear in his own reality show, with frockwriter.com first dishing the news.
These reports have now been confirmed, with a rep for DNA Models, Andrej's agency in New York, telling fashionista.com of the project. "It's still in the early stages, but yes, there is a show being developed around Andrej," explained the spokesperson.
Sources close to Andrej told Australian journalist Patty Huntington that the programme would follow Andrej as he embarks on various job assignments. It is also reported that Andrej's mother Jadranka Savic will star on the new show, although more details are scarce at the moment.
Andrej is one of the fashion industry's most in-demand names, modelling both men's and women's attire for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. He also generated a huge buzz online when he fronted a campaign for Dutch retailer Hema's "Mega Push-Up Bra" last December.
