Andrej Pejic

The model formerly known as Andrej Pejic has now come out as a a transgendered woman and has amended her name to be Andreja Pejic.  After undergoing sexual reassignment surgery, the Bosnian model will continue on with modeling — plans for fashion week are already in the works — and a fledgling acting career as she will appear in Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid. She will be moving from the men’s model boards to the women’s boards, and hopes to land a beauty campaign at some point.

I’m not sure if there’s any relation here in the character design, but I think it’s possible that “andrej pejic” might have influenced the development and changes to Jlo’s design as the series went on.
