Andrej Pejic Got a Beauty Contract With Jean Paul Gaultier

Quote:

Andrej Pejic has gotten his first major beauty contract as the face of Jean Paul Gaultier's new men’s fragrance, Kokorico, according to WWD. This is a big deal for any model, but particularly for Pejic, who is known for his androgyny (in addition to his normal model qualities, of course — cheekbones, long legs, pretty hair). Pejic remains steadfast in his refusal to define his sexual identity, but he's modeled in both menswear and womenswear shows, including Gaultier's. Hopefully this campaign, shot last week in Paris by Matthew Stone, further proves his global appeal regardless of gender categorization. Gaultier first released Kokorico last July with black-and-white TV commercials starring the decidedly manly Spanish model Jon Kortajarena, so bringing on Pejic marks a shift in the fragrance's marketing.

How Much Will Andrej Pejic Earn for His Jean Paul Gaultier Fragrance Campaign?

Quote:
Last week in Paris, the androgynous male model Andrej Pejic starred in a solo print campaign for Jean Paul Gaultier's new men's fragrance, Kokorico. The ads were photographed by DJ Matthew Stone.

Getting a fragrance campaign with a major fashion house is a sure sign a model's "made it," but even though Pejic will surely continue to land more high-profile editorial and ad jobs in the near future, the jury's still out on what "making it" will look like for him.

Pejic's spent a good part of his still-young career modeling womenswear. Fashion is drawn to provocative and atypical representations of sexuality, and Pejic's long hair, peculiar features, and lithe body made him appear almost uncannily like a female model. In fact, when Pejic posed topless on the cover of Dossier, Barnes & Noble censored the image because the young male model appeared too much like a chest-bearing woman.

Modeling is the one occupation where standard wage inequality is reversed: women earn far more than their male counterparts all across the board. In Pricing Beauty, Ashley Mears notes that while a woman might earn between $100K and $1.5 million for a fragrance campaign, a male model's rate ranges from $30K to $150K.

In an interview with New York Magazine last August, Pejic joked that even though he was modeling for a more lucrative segment of the fashion industry, womenswear, his salary sure wasn't breaking any gender barriers: “I don’t get out of bed for less than $50 a day. I want to make that clear to America. This is a new age of androgynous supermodels. We don’t get out of bed for less than $50 a day.”

That's a pretty quick switch. Jon's ad hasn't been a year since it first released.

Andrej Pejic is considering a lead role in a French feature film

Quote:
Abbey Lee Kershaw isn’t the only Australian überblonde who may be considering a move into movie territory. Frockwriter always thought that the perfect movie role for Andrej Pejic might be Pygar the angel in a remake of Roger Vadim’s 1968 sci fi classic Barbarella. While the latest Barbarella remake attempt may be stuck in development hiatus, we were very interested to hear that Pejic is currently seriously considering another movie role. Also with a French director as it happens.

Arnaud Vanbleus, Pejic's Paris agent at the New Madison model agency, tells frockwriter that Pejic has been approached by - and has subsequently met with - French director Florence Dewavrin, who is developing a feature based on French writer Honoré de Balzac's novel Séraphita.

Pejic is earmarked for the lead role.

Published in 1834 - and recently adapted for the Paris stage by Ouriel Zohar - Balzac's classic is set in Norway and tells the story of an androgynous youth of great physical beauty, who goes by the names of both Séraphitus and Séraphita. Perfect casting in other words.

Nothing is yet set in stone but yes, Pejic is interested reports Vanbleus, who is currently fielding "tonnes" of requests in France for his star model.

"He's a phenomenon, that’s for sure - and he's unique, there is only one" says Vanbleus. "Everyone wants to have him. But the thing usually is, they either don’t have the budget or we’re not interested in the project".
