Lea is one of the hottest models this year with every brand dreaming to have her grace their campaigns.
Lea, 28, was born Leandro Cerezo - male - and is undergoing hormone replacement therapy in preparation for a full sex-change.
Lea has now made further waves in the fashion industry by posing naked in French Vogue.She also appears in the current issue of Italian Vanity Fair, in which she describes how she struggled with her identity, but always felt feminine.
She describes how, even in her previous career as a male model, casting directors would confuse her with the female models.
'I had a big Afro similar to Michael Jackson's in his Jackson Five days,' she said.'When I walked into a room for a casting, there would always be someone who would say: "The girls' casting is that way!"'
Tisci first spotted Lea's potential when she was appointed as his personal assistant. He said: 'Lea has innate elegance - she's a true goddess!She’s always been very feminine - super-fragile, very aristocratic. She’s part of the [Givenchy] family,’ he added.
