These transgender models are taking the fashion world by storm– the era of trans models being ‘weird’ is officially over.
The fashion industry has always embraced unique looks. Only in the fashion industry would people who look like Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano be considered the cream of the crop.

I say this not because I think that all transgender people look that unique, but the idea of breaking through the barrier of what we consider ‘normal’ has always sort of fallen into the hands of fashion.
