Meet Casey Legler.
At a towering 6ft 2" with a strong jaw line and tattoos, Casey is carving out a successful career as a male model.
There's just one thing, Casey just so happens to be a woman -- the only one in the world working exclusively as a male model.
Casey Legler, the woman who works as a male model
In an exclusive interview with Time magazine, Casey suppresses her girly giggles to open up about working as a man:
"We have very specific ways in which we identify ourselves as man or woman and I think sometimes those can be limiting.
"It would be a lovely place if we didn't necessarily judge or jump to conclusion because someone wants to wear a dress or because someone wants to wear pants[...]
She adds: "The part that can feel complicated sometimes is that I also look pretty fierce in a dress. That's where it gets exciting, is that fluidity that I celebrate."
Casey is not the only model to be celebrated for their androgyny at the moment.
Bosnian blonde model Andrej Pejic is famed for his boy-girl look, booking work for both female and male roles. Interestingly Andrej was voted 98th in FHM's list of "100 Sexiest Women In The World", before the publisher realised their mistake, apologised and removed him.
