Transgender Model to be on Oprah

Lea T.’s scheduled to film a segment for one of Oprah’s final shows. The transgendered model’s best known for her central role at Givenchy; she was Riccardo Tisci’s assistant and now she’s his muse and fit model. The 28-year-old’s profile started to rise after she was shot for French Vogue last year and appeared in Tisci’s brilliant couture collection, as well as the house’s fall ad campaign and spring runway. The segment’s set to air in February.

It hasn’t been filmed yet (and her reps in Milan can’t comment until after it’s aired), but regardless of the focus of the piece, it’s a big deal. Few models make it onto Oprah, especially not those whose careers are just starting, or those rising to fame on the platform of being different. Fame within the fashion community is one thing, but it’s nothing compared to what Oprah can do. At the very least, her conversation with Oprah won’t be boring (and if she wears Givenchy, neither will the outfits).
