Fashion Week Gallery: 50 Lesbian & Bisexual Fashion Models

Hey, it’s fashion week again! Much like Mikey Koffman, I feel like it’s always fashion Week. Anyhow, in celebration of this monumental week dedicated to lithe girls walking down runways surrounded by famous people in folding chairs with cameras and cocktails, we thought it’d be fun to take a look at all the “mainstream” models who have been known to sleep with other women! WHY NOT? [Due to the topic of this gallery, it severely lacks diversity, but I suppose you knew that getting into it.]

Please yell at us in the comments about [x] person not actually being queer and us being really terrible to have been informed otherwise!

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Go to our Fundraiser!

  1. i have the world’s biggest crush on amanda moore. she really just didn’t give a fuck about modeling. and where are gia carangi and jenny shimizu, the biggest lesbian models alive? if you’re going to have louise brooks, then gia should definitely be included.


    Don’t get me wrong, I love Freja and company as much as the next queer, but that photo of Rachel Williams, the hair, those eyes … I am dead.

  3. I am so in love with Feja it should be a crime.

    On a side note, I’m pretty sure that I discovered Autostaddle by searching the internet for a .gif of Freja doing the eating-out hand sign on the street during an interview in between shows. I never did find it again, but the discovery of AS made the trip into the 20th page of google well worth it.

  4. Sorry to be the obnoxious person at the party that works in fashion, but at least ten of those women are actresses, which does not count as a model. Additionally, another large chunk of those featured have to have been dug up from the depths of the internet for the sole purpose of this post.

    And to clarify, just because Beth Ditto walked for Gauthier doesn’t make her a model; the term generally used is muse.
