She took a break from the modelling world a couple of years back in 2010, and we've been feeling a major comeback since last year . . . But nothing heralded Catherine McNeil's arrival back in the spotlight like the week just gone. Storming the Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week runway for Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen (to name a few), this Aussie model is back with a vengeance — and gosh, how we've missed her. With those razor-sharp cheekbones, looong cat-eyes and sexy, choppy hair, she's one face we're glad to have our eyes on again. Click through to see some of Catherine's runway looks, and a couple of her amazing editorials from the last year — and welcome back, Cat!
When a supe admits her skincare brand of choice, we listen — very carefully. Aussie model Nicole Trunfio recently revealed she's started using a new range of skincare called Sodashi. A chemical-free approach to beautiful skin, Nicole told Modelinia, "It’s an organic line from Western Australia that uses essential oils, so everything is really clean. My skin literally stopped breaking out after I started using their products." Sounds good to us! Sodashi skincare caters to both men and women, and follows the Ayurvedic principles, along with aromatherapy and biochemistry. It's actually considered the purist skincare in the world.
I was lucky enough to spend some time with Miranda Kerr today (now I know it's hard to tell, but that's me on the left), following her new appointment as the Australian ambassador for Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy. The hair care range consists of four shampoos and four conditioners, each enriched with a blend of vitamins and nutrients to nourish the scalp. Clear is all about creating a healthy foundation for hair to grow and prosper — very much inline with Miranda's from-the-inside-out approach to beauty and wellbeing. I must say, it's a lovely fit. But now, the questions! To find out everything from her favourite cheat food to what she does when she feels bloated, click through.
Miranda Kerr stepped out in Sydney today to announce her new role as the Australian ambassador for a soon-to-be-launched hair care range. Making the announcement at the Palm House in the Royal Botanical Gardens, Miranda showcased exactly why she's the perfect spokesmodel for the range, with her glossy brunette locks almost stealing the show. The range is called Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy, and is currently fronted by Heidi Klum in the US campaigns. This gig will join Miranda's other ambassador roles — she currently fronts David Jones, Qantas, Lipton Iced Tea (in Japan) and her own skincare range, Kora Organics. Busy girl!

In a classic case of 'supermodels-who-get-better-with-age,' Christy Turlington graces the May issue of Tatler sporting an androgynous look complete with drawn-on moustache. Although unusual, the French-style mo' does little to distract from her flawless complexion and natural beauty. The menswear-inspired look is a far cry from her recent Harper's Bazaar Singapore and The Gentlewoman covers, which both focus on Christy in her feminine, supermodel element. What do you think of this image — creative and gorgeous, or does the mo' just have to go?
When Elle Macpherson isn't rocking an all white suit, she goes to the dark side. Stepping out in LA at the NBC Universal TCA All-Star Party, the supermodel looked like her usual ultra-glam self, showing the power of great accessorising with her all black ensemble. Like Olivia, Elle has made her simple tee and leather trouser combo interesting via her eclectic choice of jewellery. A bib-necklace, stacks of gold bangles and a mannish watch jzush up her look, whilst her classic aviators and peep toe pumps add a timeless appeal. We were so impressed with this supe's stellar styling, we went shopping to find similar.
As our fave style icon Kate Moss (y'know she's got the award to prove it?) is getting hitched, we're a tad excited about her weekend wedding. Miss Moss was spotted just yesterday out and about on pre-wedding prep, and by the sounds of it, Mosstock (as it's been coined) is set to be the coolest wedding in living memory. With news breaking that Kate will indeed wear a gown designed by pal John Galliano, we'll be on high alert tomorrow for pics of wedding dress, however we may have to wait until US Vogue's September issue hits the stands to see it up close! In celebration of Mossy's iconic style evolution, we're giving a suitably chic send off to her last day of being a single gal. Check out our gallery and scope the best of the bride-to-be's stellar style.
We're turning green at our desks. And no, it's not because we're unwell. We're green with envy after seeing our US Fab sisters chatting with home-grown beauty Miranda Kerr. Catching up with the new mum whilst on duty for Victoria's Secret, they talked to Ms Kerr about what she totes to the beach, her fave swimsuit styles, and how to bring out your inner bombshell. MK was her usual friendly, incredibly gorgeous self, decked out in head to toe Balenciaga (but of course). Press play to see this quick Q & A with the Aussie supe.
Dear Gemma Ward, how do we say this? Don't leave us! We know you've had some time off from the modelling world of late, and we knew you'd been sussing out the acting game, but puh-lease don't forsake the world of fashion altogether (after all, you were such a success)! I suppose we should be sending congratulations, not commiserations, your way — as you're about to star in the play The Ugly One for the Perth Theatre Company, opening March 22nd. Thing is, we're still hung over from your days modelling at Vogue. Perhaps the only solution is to get stage-side and see you in action? In the meantime though, we're going to take a look back through your impressive portfolio of work, and remember the good times. Excuse us.
Abbey Lee Kershaw is everywhere right now. Not that we're complaining. We love a homegrown hottie, especially one that wears platinum blonde so well. And it's not just us that are fully-paid up members of the Abbey Lee Kershaw Fan Club either, V Magazine are saying "this season belongs to her," calling her the new supermodel. Which is high praise indeedy. Not since Elle "The Body" Macpherson has Australia seen one of its own join the elite ranks of the '90s "Big Six" — Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. Does she deserve such high praise? Well anyone who fuses Flashdance and the jet-set glamour of the '70s as well as she does in the "A is for Abbey: New Supermodel" spread for V Magazine is a superstar in our eyes. We ADORE the fuchsia lip and purple eye, not to mention that volume in her new platinum 'do.
