After making fashion history to become the first transgender model to get a Vogue spread, Andreja Pejic now holds bragging rights to becoming the first transgender model to land a fashion magazine cover with Marie Claire Spain.

Pejic graces the March cover of Marie Claire Spain, in a knit slip dress that shows off her long, lithe form. The cover was shot by Pablo Zamora and marks an industry first.

Though the 24-year-old has posed for many an editorial and walked several catwalks, this marks her first cover as a woman. Pejic graced a 2012 cover of Elle Serbia in her former life as a male model.

The Australian model underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2014. She is also a spokesmodel for Make Up For Ever.
