Transgender model Andreja Pejic on the cover of Marie Claire Spain Since she was plucked from obscurity as a teen and thrown in to the modelling world, Andreja Pejic has challenged society's perception of beauty.

Her career has seen her challenge and break down gender barriers, and now the Australian model has graced the March 2016 cover of Marie Claire Spain who named her 'Model of the Year'.
