Montréal’s very own Rick Genest, affectionately known as ‘Zombie Boy’, hit the headlines in the past few years when he became one of the very few people in his home city to have their entire body tattooed.
Having previously worked in a freak show/circus just out of Montréal, he’s was as prepared as he could’ve been for what was about to happen. Following Thierry Mugler’s revamp by Nicola Formichetti, Genest was set to look the part in Mugler’s revolutionarily gloomy, gothic catwalks.
Pictured above with Lady Gaga herself, Genest is included in an entire scene in the video to Gaga’s phenomenal anthem ’Born this way’. Throughout he’s seen being intimate and caressing Mother Monster.
Genest has a bright future ahead of him with his extremely unique look that is destined to capture the eye of even the most traditional fashionista.

Andrej Pejic was working as a till assistant at a McDonalds in Australia whilst he was 16, when he was spotted by a model agency looking for new and upcoming talent. He wasn’t sure at first whether the agent thought he was a woman or not.
Since his discovery in Melbourne in 2010, Andrej Pejic has demanded a crowd of the insanely different, androgyny loving fashionistas looking for that edge on their catwalk. With a Serbian Mother and a Croatian Father, 19 year old Andrej has experimented around his race through his gender since and early age, looking to blend the barriers between each sex.
One of his most notable acheivements must be the fact that he walked for both the male and female catwalks in 2011 for Jean-Paul Gaultier and also just the mens department for Marc, by Marc Jacobs.
This fantastic new model has been a breakthrough for the fashion world having been the only man in history to have worn male and female inclined clothing down the catwalk. He is definitely recommended as a model to keep up with.
