21-year-old Andrej Pejic sports impeccable bone structure, a willowy 6-foot frame and has the high-fashion model’s patented pout down pat. A favorite of couture kingpin Jean Paul Gaultier, this stunning beauty is also a little different than most leggy catwalk creatures – Pejic happens to be a man.

With an adventurous past behind him (Bosnian-born at the cusp of the war, spent time in a refugee camp, grew up in Melbourne, Australia, then lighted out to London to model), Pejic’s career is gaining speed, and we can definitively say, “That Andrej is so hot right now.” He’s strutted his androgynous stuff for 2011’s New York Fashion Week (working five men’s shows and four women’s), has already been shot by French Vogue, and recently landed the cover of Serbian Elle, making him the first male to score that mag’s milestone.
