Openly trans model and LGBT rights activist Lea T has become the new face of premium haircare line Redken.

After becoming the muse of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, Lea T is now featured in Redken’s Chromatics hair-color line campaign.

The Brazillian model was discovered by Givenchy three years ago.

She featured in Bennetton’s Unhate campaign last year.

Aiming to “fight against hate and discrimination in all its forms,” the Unhate campaign features Lea T, who has also modelled for Givenchy.
