The Male Model
( Who’s Actually Female!) Meet Casey Legler, a 35-year-old, 6ft2in tall woman who’s making it big as a male model...
We wouldn’t blame you if you thought Casey was just another skinny guy at first glance. With her clear blue eyes, super-tall frame and a signature gap in her teeth, this Frenchorigin artist is joining a group of models, including Andrej Pejic—a man who models women’s clothing— who are taking the gender lens by storm. Casey was scouted and signed by Ford Models after she filled in for a male model at a friend’s shoot. The Olympic swimmer was at her full height at the age of 13. She shaved her blonde hair for the 1997 Games and never went back, saying it was one of the most defining moments in her life. When it comes to her stint in the world of modelling, she’s all about freedom from gender identity and gender expression. “This is a unique little moment that fashion is allowing to happen,” she explained to Time Magazine. Kudos, girlfriend!
Casey rose to fame, thanks to her androgynous looks
