Out's "Stylemaker of the Year," Andrej Pejic

I dude!

Andrej Pejic is no stranger to playing the bride (he closed Jean Paul Gaultier's couture show in a ruffled gown), so it's no surprise to see the gender-bending male model defying convention once again with a wedding-themed cover shoot for Out.

Named the magazine's "Stylemaker of the Year," the 20-year-old blonde is a dead ringer for a virginal, Vogue-inspired 1960s bride thanks to a conservatively cut cream dress, ruby lips, rose-adorned blonde curls, and a veil that covers his pretty face.

Inside, Pejic weighs in on his androgynous identity and how it fits into the competitive fashion industry.

"I have to work twice as hard to be taken as seriously as the top girls," says Pejic, who also poses nude with a python coiled around his lean frame. 

"I understand that it will take time for me to prove that I'm actually a good model once you look past the media hype and the uniqueness of my looks. But hey, I'm not the first that has had to fight." 

The Serbian-Australian stunner also reveals the inspiration behind his decision to meet the Queen in a skirt and heels.

"I was tempted to wear a suit, like a nice fitted tuxedo, but it didn't work out in the end," he tells the magazine. "

So I went for a '90s Sharon Stone-inspired look. And the hair added some youth to the situation. The palace was beautiful—I felt right at home. And let's face it, we all love a good Queen."

No argument there!
