Transsexual model Lea T. has taken her first turn on the runway and -- surprise! It wasn't for Givenchy. She walked in a long, black dress with ornate sleeves for designer Alexandre Herchcovitch's Fall/Winter 2011/2012 show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, in her native Brazil.

Take a look at photographs from the show (even the AFP caught on, writing, "Despite the arrival of some of the biggest names in the fashion and entertainment world, all eyes at the Winter 2011 fashion week that kicks off here Friday are [on] a new runway star") and click through to the last slide to watch the entire show.
