"I don't want what I've done to be seen as any kind of revolt against the fashion industry, I love the industry and what it creates, I'm just adding another voice to the narrative. As a menswear model you work twice as long as a womenswear model, but probably earn half as much, so it evens itself out. Hopefully the change I've made will mean I'll have the same time I've already had over again - which I'm really looking forward to." - Elliott Sailors, Vogue, 2012
Seen as the classic All-American girl with long blonde hair and blue eyes, Elliott started her modeling career by first shooting with Bruce Weber - going on to work with those such as Peter Beard and Ellen Von Unwerth. Her face has been featured in Times Square more than once, most recently for H&M.
Since Elliott chose to cut the long locks and begin modeling menswear, her androgyny, and commitment to people being true to themselves gained international notoriety- including appearances on The Today Show, The View, Access Hollywood, CNN, BBC, Sunrise in Australia and many more worldwide. On the runways you have seen her walking for the likes of Chromat, Diesel, Rick Owens and opening Vivienne Westwood menswear in Milan.
