What You Need to Know About Miley’s BFF, Trans Model Gigi Gorgeous

With inspiring figures like Caitlyn Jenner + her #squad, OITNB’s Laverne Cox slaying it on the red carpet and teen activist Jazz Jennings garnering headline after headline these days, the world is truly living #transisbeautiful. On our list of new and established transgender stars to keep on your radar, YouTube beauty guru/model Gigi Gorgeous has popped up before, but she’s about to be a household name after her latest appearance — on Miley Cyrus’s Instagram.

Miley happens to be Marie Claire’s upcoming cover girl and during the shoot, her good friend Gigi decided to crash. What proceeded to happen makes us wish that we were there. The mag posted this image on their social media along with the caption: “Surprise! @gigigorgeous made a guest appearance at @mileycyrus’ Marie Claire cover shoot. Honestly, most fun we’ve had in a verrry long time.”

Miley followed up by posting this super sexy pic of Miley zipping up her pal. The pair looking incredibly glam with Miley in an embellished LBD and Gigi in a white bodycon with black trim. Miley wrote in the caption: “Me & Muah girl @gigigorgeous for @marieclairemag”

Gigi posted this behind-the-scenes pic of Miley getting her hands on the camera, and it definitely looks like they were having a blast. The up-and-coming model wrote, “When @mileycyrus takes ur pic u WERK. So in love with her…”

Gigi has over 1.6 million followers on her YouTube channel and has been making beauty and vlogging videos since 2008, so she’s a star in her own right. Aside from being an absolute goddess of makeup, she’s also incredibly honest and brave in her vlogging — she came out to her fans on her channel, she documented her entire transition in the public eye and has even talked openly about facial feminization surgery. She’s a transgender role model to many out there so don’t call her Miley’s co-star ;)

Guys, can we all be friends?
