Dilone Model Transgender?

Is Dilone, the model, transgender? No, the 21-year-old is not transgender.  The Long Island born beauty is a girly tomboy who loves her hair short.  She has walked for some of the most respected designers in the fashion industry including Dolce & Gabbana, Hermés and Chloe.  The video towards the bottom of this post features her 2016 Versace campaign.

Rumors about Dilone being transgender began after she walked in Bottega Veneta’s 2016 menswear show.  The model has nine siblings who she would put on plays with when she was younger.  She loved the plays so much that she dreamed of becoming a famous Hollywood star.  Dilone forgot about her acting dreams after being scouted by her agency.

Dilone doesn’t mind people thinking she’s a man.  In a recent interview she explained that Denzel Washington would portray her in a movie about her life.

She recently closed the Pink section of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  The beautiful model looked winter-ready on stage with Bruno Mars.
