Australian model Andrej Pejic is on one of the covers of New York's fall fashion issue. "In this society, if a man is called a woman, that's the biggest insult he could get," he tells the magazine. "Is that because women are considered something less?" Pejic appears topless on the cover, something which in the recent past has not been well-received by certain chain bookstores; there's no word on whether New York, like Dossier before it, was required to wrap the issue in an opaque cover. Of his rates — modeling is one of the few fields where women out-earn men by a wide margin — Pejic jokes, "I don't get out of bed for less than $50 a day. I want to make that clear to America. This is a new age of androgynous supermodels. We don't get out of bed for less than $50 a day." [NYMag]
