Meet Casey Legler, a Woman Working as a Male Model: VIDEO


TIME profiles Casey Legler:

Legler landed the modeling gig this summer when her friend, the photographer Cass Bird, invited her at the last minute to participate in the role of a man for a photo shoot for Muse magazine. The photos were shared with an agent at Ford Models, and the next day, Legler was invited to sign a contract to work exclusively from their male roster.

“This is a unique little moment that fashion is allowing to have happen,” Legler says.

  1. This is really, really cool. And she's really, really cool. She's beautiful too. I wish I had her hair.

  2. I think that she seems cool too. But no highly successful model (male or female) could have bags under their eyes like hers in the screen capture. Her nose and teeth also look big, and the neck tattoo has to be covered most of the time, though she photos really well and is charming, with a wonderful personality.

  3. I don't think she is quite male model caliber, sorry!

  4. Her face has a somewhat masculine form to it in the jawline, in the ear folds, and in the slight projection of the forehead and eyesockets. Not much, but still there. However she does not come across as a man to me, but as an interesting looking woman playing at bending gender lines.

  5. The comments on here are becoming so unreasonably catty that they've driven away all of the mildly offensive, self-hating trolls. Andy posted a story that was of interest to him. Don't like it, so be it. Why the vitriol?
