Elliott Sailors,The New Male Model Who’s Actually A Woman

, who used to pose on the beach in string bikinis for
photographers Bruce Weber and Ellen von Unwerth, decided to shear her
long blonde locks in favor of a more boyish look in 2012. Though she was
often dissuaded from entering the men’s modeling industry—with lower
earnings, less opportunities, and the possibility of losing her former
clients—Sailors followed her heart, breaking through as an unlikely
model in the forefront of men’s fashion.

Elliott Sailors said her father took her to a model search when she was 9 years old. It was
until 2001, when she was 19, that she moved into NYC to model full time and have
been ever since!

About getting into menswear, Elliott Sailors said:
“I’ve always loved androgyny in fashion and at the end of September 2012
I took The Landmark Forum – a personal training and development
program. It was in the course that I chose to really move forward in a
way that is not only true to who I am, but also the creation of
something that is bigger than I am.”
