The Gender Bending Excellence of Ricardo Tisci as Presented by Model Lea T. in Givenchy’s New Advertising Campaign for Fall/Winter 2010/11

As first reported by WWD, Ricardo Tisci, head designer at Givenchy “is using a transexual among the cast for the house’s fall-winter ad campaign, and it’s someone he knows well: his longtime personal assistant and, interestingly enough, former fit model for his own line. Lea T., a Brazilian with delicate features previously known as Leo, appears alongside an ethnically diverse range of faces in the spots, slated to break in the July issue of L’Uomo Vogue. “She’s always been very feminine: superfragile, very aristocratic,” Tisci enthused of the former Mr. T. “She’s part of the family,” he said, noting that Lea is transitioning into a new career, veterinary medicine, in Milan.”
