Casey Legler is 6’2″, a gay activist, swam for France in the Olympic Games, and has become internationally acclaimed as the world’s first female male model and is now tipped to walk the catwalk in the next round of Paris shows.
Casey Legler, 35, who lives in New York City, was signed to the men’s division at the prestigious Ford modelling agency this summer… In a candid new interview, she tells Time Magazine how she stumbled into the unlikely career, after posing as a man in a shoot as a favour for a friend.
‘As far as I know, there are no other women exclusively modelling as male models,’ she says. ‘That sounds… That’s such a weird thing to say! Cause I’m a woman, you know!’
