Lurve Lea

November 12th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (26)

Lea T lands on the cover of Lurve with a stunning black and white shot by Carlotta Manaigo. The couture dress and marble columns add to the feeling of classical drama, but Lea brings a presence all her own to the shoot. Clad in Givenchy (naturally) and styled by Maher Jridi, Lea looks phenomenal and the striking cover makes for another boundary breaking first.

    I love Lea T…Viva Brazil!!!

  3. Zuriel says:

    I didn’t like it, she looks awkward, almost like she didn’t make an effort to look haute couture like her givenchy outfit!

    She doesn’t look professional like before!

    I can’t believe they deleted my comment because I said I didn’t like it -.-‘

    Simply amazing, so happy & thrilled for Lea T. Great seeing her landing more and more features!

    I don’t like how the picture on the cover is centered, it’s so wrong visually. The leg cut is strange: should be lower or higher

    Concerning the 2nd cover released -with Ashley Smith-, it’s maj but looks like a copy of Muse mag with Natasha Poly
    Lurve it anyway

    I would have chosen Dafne C. for this ed, she would have rocked it.

    I don’t what all the fuss about Lea T is about. Just b/c she’s transgendered? It’s rather provincial to give someone that much attention just because of that. If she were biologically a woman, she wouldn’t get nearly as much attention. Why not give work to one of the other girls who don’t have to depend on the notoriety and is just a great model?

    Love Lea! Bizarre!

    Very Elvira -ish.

    Why just not wear a brighter, happier Versace couture gown and be glowy?

    The question of course remains will she break ground beyond the fashion canvas and appear in national campaigns or can we ever expect Lea T the super model or film actress? And perhaps more interestingly would anyone be talking about Lea T if she just happened to be an ordinary model? But since when did ordinary make it on fashion covers anyway…?

  17. Shanan says:

    Scallyway and eek; you have to understand that Lea T is not in fact an ordinary model or just another girl. She is indeed a transgendered woman who by default is not just ‘ordinary’. Fashion is a great way to raise awareness to transgendered individuals and by claiming that she is nothing special, you are devaluing her existence. She has actually been on a ‘(inter)national cover’ (Givency) and since she is an amazing model, I’m sure she will bring originality and innovation to the fashion world.

    I think she’s absolutely stunning. A commenter suggesting that she’s getting more attention because she’s transgender, but for me, that has nothing to do with it. I just think she’s one of the most breathtaking models I’ve seen in a long time.

  19. Dan says:

    Sorry, that should be “a commenter suggested.”

    Woooow! I would love to photograph Lea one day! These pictures are fabulous! 🙂

    Gorgeous images. She looks amazing.

  22. PR says:

    its like a vision- an old european movie or a detail in history. lea tells a story. i dont know who wouldnt like to photograph her. she is more than a model.

  23. Nádia says:

    Beautiful photographs! I may not love Lea T., but this is good!

    Will there be any reason to always see the nostrils?
    I do not like poses.
