Leandro Cerezo is now Lea T, a successful model out of Brazil. Learn how a young Brazilian man became one of the biggest female supermodels at Givenchy. Also, check out photos and video below.

Lea T

As of now Lea T is considered the official muse of Riccardo Tisci, creative director of the Givenchy fashion house. But it wasn’t always that way.

She entered the world as Leandro Cerezo, and even had a successful career as a male model, but casting directors would often confuse her for a woman:

“When I walked into a room for a casting, there would always be someone who would say: “The girls’ casting is that way!”‘

But the decision to make the transition to female hasn’t been an easy one. Lea describes the teasing she has endured, especially when she first began the hormone treatment. Now she can laugh it off because her success speaks for itself. Lea T has landed multiple magazine covers—even appearing nude in French Vogue.
