Transgender model Lea T. is no stranger to busting through barriers and she continues to do so with her latest beauty gig. While it isn’t unheard of to see a transgendered woman on a runway, it is a rare sight in a high fashion or beauty campaign. At least until now. The Brazilian-born belle has been named Redken’s latest brand muse.
Lea will front the campaign for Redken’s line of Chromatics hair color, which promises 2x fortified hair with use. The model admitted to Style.com that she is more concerned with the state of her hair than she is with her face, making her perfect for this project. Lea has also appeared in campaigns for Benetton, Phillipp Plein and Givenchy and has been featured on the cover of Love magazine and ELLE Brasil.
She is obviously a gorgeous woman and we hope that this leads to even more beauty campaigns for the model. Today hair, tomorrow makeup!
