Strut season finale: Isis King is the Kate Moss of trans models in exclusive clip

Posted on


She entered the world of reality television as a cover girl hopeful on cycle 11 of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model, but across five episodes of Oxygen’s docuseries Strut, Isis King has proven her staying power as one of the top transgender models in the country.

EW has a first look at the series finale of the Whoopi Goldberg-produced show, which follows the personal and professional lives of transgender models booking jobs through Slay Model Management.

In the clip above, King auditions for Project Runway alum Michael Costello’s New York Fashion Week runway show.

“You better believe I’m gonna walk my ass off and show you that I’m here,” King says before booking the job. “They want to make sure you have the ability to own the outfit. The fact that I’m going to be a Michael Costello girl is epic. I get to walk beside all of those tall models and show them this is Isis King, a.k.a. the Kate Moss of the trans models.”

The season finale of Strut airs Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Oxygen. Watch an exclusive look at the new episode in the video above.
