BIOGRAPHY

The latest supermodel to turn heads on the catwalk, Andrej’s stunning androgynous look is making serious waves in the fashion world. Modelling womenswear, the male model sure fooled us, and would make even the hottest Hollywood starlet green with envy.

Andrej has had a more turbulent childhood than most. Born in Bosnia, he and his family were forced to flee their home during the Bosnian War, first relocating to Serbia and finally settling in Melbourne, Australia as refugees. Andrej was only eight years old.

Andrej was scouted in Melbourne at the age of 16 and is signed to the famous Storm modelling agency. He has taken the fashion world by storm, modelling the latest Marc Jacob’s menswear collection in 2011. He has since become Jean Paul Gaultier’s newest muse and modelled both Gaultier’s menswear and womenswear collections at the Paris fashion shows in January 2011.

In April 2001, FHM readers voted Andrej the 98th sexiest woman in the world in the magazine’s annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.
