The 24-year-old Paris-born Ines-Loan Rau is a striking beauty, no doubt and as such she has been photographed and seen in numerous provocative photo spreads in magazines around the world.
She has been in the company of a number of supermodels both behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera, notably in an edgy photo shoot with Tyson Beckford in OOB Magazine. The erotic, black and white photos — decidedly NSFW (which you can see here) — caused quite a stir and even got her Instagram account suspended when she posted them.
But for Ines-Loan Rau, her career, and her free spirited stance is about more than provoking controversy, which, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.
In a recent interview, and photo shoot for Oyster Magazine, she was asked about why she describes herself as a “Fierce Wildcat” — in her Twitter and Instagram profiles and elsewhere — and how it is that she is so comfortable with nakedness. she said, “I call myself a “fierce wildcat” because I’m a very powerful person. I felt comfortable being nude, even before doing the transition. I always felt in love with my body. That’s the way I am.”

Indeed, her undeniable courage in coming out is admirable. It’s always a fact that curiosity is sparked when someone does not fit the rigid norms we have, and thus some search for clues in the Ines-Loan Rau biography and wonder how did she know who she truly was and when. The basic facts of her professional modeling particulars are widely available; her height is 5’10 and her measurements are 34-1/2 – 23-1/2 — 34-1/2 and she has brown hair and brown eyes and wears a U.S. dress size 6. Professionally, she is variously known as Ines Rau.
Her life story is of great interest and she has shared in various interviews she was born in Paris, France and is of North African ancestry. She had the gender reassignment surgery while still a teenager at age 16. As for coming out, she cites as inspiration Tula’s book “I Am Woman.”
As for her thoughts on gender which she alludes to in her Twitter profile — “fiercely taking the state of being to the next level” — she told Oyster magazine that “it’s a very powerful feeling to choose which gender you’re going to be and to go for it.” She went on to say, “So, I feel that I own this life more than anyone could. I went all the way to become the deep-inside person that I wanted to be.”
