Transgender Model Lea T. Makes Her First Post-Op Runway Appearance
Of course, being pre-op never stopped Lea T from tearing up runways and booking major editorials and covers.
She modeled swimwear in an ad campaign for Brazilian swim label Blue Man last fall.
Once again sporting designs by Blue Man, Lea looked gorgeous and tan walking alongside fellow Brazilian stunners Caroline Ribeiro and Isabeli Fontana (who looked suspiciously lighter than in those dermatologist-detested H&M snaps). And according to Made in Brazil, we can look forward to seeing a lot more of Lea this season, as she’s just been confirmed to be walking in several shows during Fashion Rio and Sau Paulo Fashion Week in the coming months.
The fashion world has long embraced Lea T. as a transgender icon–The past several years have seen her walk in countless shows for names like Givenchy, appearing in Vogue Paris spreads, and appearing on magazine covers alongside the likes of Kate Moss. We’re so excited to see Lea walking in Sau Paulo and find out what the future holds for her career now that’s she’s finally undergone her long-awaited procedure. Congratulations Lea T!
