Givenchy Puts Transsexual Model In Fall Ad Campaign (PHOTOS)

Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci has cast a transsexual model in the fashion house's fall-winter ad campaign, WWD reports. Lea T., formerly known as Leo, is also Tisci's longtime personal assistant and former fit model.

Tisci said, "She's always been very feminine: superfragile, very aristocratic." He added that including a transgendered person in his campaign illustrates the "masculine-feminine dichotomy" he is now known for.
