Transgender model Nicole Gibson made headlines this month when she stunned crowds by walking down the catwalk in lingerie for the first time since her gender confirmation surgery.

Walking in the Models Of Diversity Ideal Home Show campaign, Gibson sported some luxury lingerie by Russian designer Sonata Rapalyte in front of thousands of attendees. Models of Diversity is reportedly "a charity championing beauty regardless of age, size, race, ability or shape."

"I didn't know what I was feeling but I knew I wasn't the same as everyone else," Gibson previously told the Daily Mail when discussing her gender identity. "I used to dress up in dresses and pretend I was Elizabeth Taylor in 'The Blue Bird' -- but I told everyone else I was pretending to be a wizard."

Gibson previously took part in the Catwalk for Change campaign for Models of Diversity, just hours before undergoing her final gender confirmation surgery. Catwalk for Change is a fashion showcase that seeks to challenge the lack of diversity within the fashion industry.
