London: With her hair styled into a faux undercut and eyes closed, Kate Moss is barely recognizable as she poses in a passionate clinch with transgender model Lea T on the cover of the forthcoming issue of LOVE magazine’s ‘Androgyny Issue’.

LOVE editor Katie Grand has revealed how she became acquainted with the 28-year-old Brazilian model.

"I was by the pool at the Copacabana Palace Hotel when I saw her. At first I didn’t notice her gender, just that she was wearing Givenchy couture and looked amazing," the Telegraph quoted Grand as saying.

Grand and T immediately became firm fashion friends, and T, who has modelled for French couture house Givenchy, became the muse for the androgynous theme of the Condé Nast title, which hits news stands on February 7.
