Remember Andre J? Now you do, right? We had nearly forgotten about the downtown tranny-turned-fashion icon until a photo of him emerged on the internet via Shiona Turini’s Twitter.
Turini, CR‘s Fashion and Market Editor (formerly of Teen Vogue), tweeted the above photo the other day, writing, “Today at #crfashionbook @andrejworldwide and the boss lady #wurk.” We uncovered a few more photos from the shoot from Andre’s Twitter, in which he is working a bondage-y outfit and some seriously gorgeous locks on a downtown hotel rooftop. We’re calling it a comeback.
It makes perfect sense that Carine would bring Andre back into the spotlight, especially now that she’s working in NYC. She essentially discovered the girl/boy about town and put him on the cover of French Vogue with Carolyn Murphy in November 2007.
We’re not sure in what capacity Andre J is involved with CR or what issue it’s for or if it’s for any issue. We’ve reached out to Tumblr’s Valentine Uhovski, who shot the photos, according to Andre’s Tweets, and will report back once we know more. For now, click through for more photos!
