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.

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:

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.
