Wowsers! Famous people, eh? Some people are really famous in the rarefied world of fashion, but not outside it, and then some of those people make the jump to big deal, proper famousness. A household name, if you will (like Persil). Will Lea T the transsexual Brazillian supermodel and muse to Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, make the jump?
Our money wouldn’t have necessarily been on her to do so, but now she’s appeared on Oprah, we’re not ruling anything out. Here she is, top to toe in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, looking amazing and chatting to the telly legend in a forthright way in her husky Brazillian drawl. She doesn’t even blanche when Oprah asks her how, err, what she does while posing for swimwear shots. Crumbs!
