Transsexual supe-in-the-making, Lea T. can add cover girl to her ever-growing list of accomplishments. She’s been tapped by Lurve magazine to front their latest issue in one of pal Riccardo Tisci’s feathery couture confections, on select newsstands soon. Some (almost) girls have all the luck!

Now if she can manage to make it into the next Victoria’s Secret Angels runway show, she’ll be set.
