Transgendered model makes splash in Rio

RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio closed its main fashion event of the year with less attention to the clothes than the model — a transgendered actress.

Patricia Araujo received a standing ovation after parading along the runway for the Complexo B brand late Friday to end the weeklong event in a city that delights in shocking the prudish with each year’s Carnival celebration.

Tall and slim, the dark-haired Araujo entered the catwalk wearing a long fur coat and quickly unveiled a short black-and-white dress to the applause of the hundreds of guests at the event.

I’m surprised there are not more transgendered models, since high fashion designers are always designing for six-foot women with boy-hips and no boobs, anyway.  Hooray for Patricia!
