Canada's Miss Universe pageant said it would allow the transgendered model to compete in its pageant as long as Canada recognizes her gender as a woman.

Jenna Talackova didn't win Miss Universe Canada 2012 but that didn't stop the transgender model from realizing her dreams.

The 25-year-old Vancouver-native is featured in the January issue of Elle Canada and the blond beauty couldn't wait to share the photos with her Twitter followers.

The leggy beauty also appears in a video on Elle Canada's website, which shows the beauty queen on the set of her photo shoot rocking gorgeous looks including a chic black strapless dress, a sheer embellished blouse and a bedroom-ready lingerie frock.

Talackova, who underwent a sex change operation more than four years ago, was initially disqualified from the Miss Univerise Canada pageant for being transgender until pageant owner Donald Trump allowed her to compete.

Not only is Jenna an advocate for transgender rights but she's also about to become a TV star thanks to her upcoming reality series "Brave New Girl."

Doesn't she look gorgeous?
