!! OMG, "I also look really fierce in a dress": Casey Legler; [fe]male model !!
Like Andrej Pejić, but the other way around; New York-based, French-born swimmer and "art-maker" Casey Legler is the first female signed to Ford Models' male division. She spoke to Time last year about her relationship to gender-types. She spoke not of gender definition, but instead of her experience and wishes of gender freedom:
"We have very specific ways in which we define ourselves as men or women and I think sometimes they can be a bit limiting...What I wish is that we all get to be exactly who we are...With [such] fluidity...[there is] this notion of freedom...that is saying 'look, there is this other way'"
