Andreja Pejic is the first transgender woman to land a beauty contract
Just in time for Pride Month, beauty brand Makeup For Ever released images from their current campaign starring Andeja Pejic and actress Jamie Chung. The tagline for the campaign is “Be Bold. Be Unexpected. Be You.” It also features two limited-edition eye shadow palettes curated by Andrej and Jamie.
At the press con, Andrej revealed that she had an upcoming documentary about her transition in 2016 to shed light on her struggles as a transgender model. “There were many trials and tribulations, but I’m standing here and I have a cosmetics contract and there are some really exciting things coming out which I can’t talk about,” she said. “They told me I wouldn’t have a future after I transitioned or that trans women can’t be respected as models. I feel like I’ve proven those people wrong.” [Fashionista]

The bottle design is surprisingly understated (in comparison to her previous fragrances), with a round bottle in opaque white and covered in rhinestones. While we’re not so sure about this idea, we have to admit: It’s Britney, bitch. [MTV]
