In January 2011, Andrej walked for Jean Paul Gaultier in his men’s show and for the January 2011 couture show, eventually appearing in the Spring/Summer 2011 JPG campaign with Karolina Kurkova. The same season, he appeared in the Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign. Named one of OUT Magazine’s 100 Most Compelling People of 2011.
