Andreja Pejić is a Bosnian-Australian model. Before coming out as a trans woman in late 2013, Pejić was known as the first androgynous supermodel. Today, she is one of the most recognisable transgender models in the world. Pejić was born in Tuzla and has one older brother, Igor, her mother, Jadranka Savić, is a Bosnian Serb, her father, Vlado Pejić, is a Bosnian Croat. The couple divorced shortly after Pejić's birth. During the Bosnian War, Pejić and Igor fled to Serbia with their mother and grandmother, settling in a refugee camp near Belgrade. After the refugee camp, the family settled in the Vojska village near Svilajnac. Following the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, Pejić's mother felt unsafe and decided to initiate the process of emigration to Australia. In 2000, the family moved to Melbourne, Australia as political refugees when Pejić was eight years old. While attending high school at University High, Pejić was described as being "academically brilliant". Pejić was scouted as a model just before her 17th birthday while working at McDonald's, though she has said in an interview that she was scouted at a swimming pool while still in high school in Melbourne.
Pejić was notable for modelling both masculine and feminine clothing. In the Paris fashion shows of January 2011, Pejić walked both the men's and women's shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men's shows for Marc Jacobs. In May 2011, her magazine cover for the New York-based magazine Dossier Journal—in which Pejić is pictured taking off a white shirt with long blond locks in curlers—was ruled too risqué by US bookstores Barnes & Noble and Borders, which covered the image with an opaque sleeve. Concerns were expressed that customers would read Pejić, who at the time was presenting as gender fluid, as a topless woman. At the Stylenite in July 2011, Pejić appeared on the catwalk both in masculine and feminine clothes from Michalsky; the following year, she modeled bridal creations by Spanish designer Rosa Clara at Barcelona's Bridal Week 2013. Pejić ranked number 18 on Models.com's Top 50 Models list in 2011, was named one of Out's Most Compelling People, was ranked number 98 in FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011, an award, criticised for its hostile tone to transgender individuals transgender women.
FHM subsequently posted an apology. Pejić has appeared on the covers of international editions of Elle, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, L'Officiel, Fashion and GQ. Andreja has appeared in editorials for fashion publications including Vogue, Elle, I-D, Dazed and Confused, Allure and Numéro. On 6 August 2012, Pejić appeared as a guest judge on Ireland's Next Top Model; the following year, Pejić appeared alongside Iselin Steiro, Saskia de Brauw, Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in the video for Bowie's 2013 single "The Stars". In late 2013, she made her acting debut playing Radu the Beautiful in the short-lived Turkish television series Fatih, based on the life of Mehmed the Conqueror. Pejić became the first transgender model profiled by Vogue, in its May 2015 issue, became the first-ever trans woman to sign a cosmetics contract. In 2016, Pejić was awarded "Best International Female Model" by GQ Portugal and the following year she made history by becoming the first transgender woman to appear on the cover of GQ.
Pejić made her major film debut in the 2018 crime thriller film The Girl in the Spider's Web. In late 2013, Pejić underwent sex reassignment surgery. In September 2014, Pejić announced plans on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform to create a film about her reassignment surgery and life as a transgender woman. Pejić started off with a projected goal of $40,000 exceeding the target funding goal.
