Androgynous model Andrej Pejic has quickly become one of fashion's "it" faces, so we were eager to hear what he actually had to say about his rise to fame. (Call us if you ever want to talk, A!) In an interview with the Telegraph, 19-year-old Pejic tells Charlotte Williamson, fashion is "a very liberal industry. You can be yourself. Just not overweight." Well, the kid's honest.

Some other takeaways from the discussion:

On how he was discovered:

Pejic was spotted shortly before his seventeenth birthday. "I was working in McDonald's part time, and this guy came in -- he wanted a cheeseburger. He then told me to see him at his modelling agency."

Did he think you were a woman? "I don't know, he didn't say. Obviously, when I went into the agency, they figured it all out ... But they signed me up right away."

On what the future holds:

"I would love to do Playboy with [the photographer] Terry Richardson. I love Playboy and Terry would be the person to do it."

Hmm...we're not sure how that would work, but we'd definitely buy that issue. Read the rest at the Telegraph.
