In a 1982, Elle Macpherson first appeared on TV in an ad for TAB cola, and quickly became the favourite “girl next door” in Australia. From there her reputation grew and she became a leading personality in fashion, film and business, rooting herself as one of the most recognised faces and brand names in the world.
Having been featured on numerous occasions on the front cover of magazines such as Time and Sports Illustrated’s Annual Swimsuit Edition, she became known as “The Body”, and created her own sell-out range of calendars in 1992, 1993 and 1994. Following this success, she created the “Your Personal Best The Body” workout video – voted the year’s best instructional workout by Billboard magazine in 1995.
Elle has also worked as an actress alongside actors as diverse as George Clooney, Hugh Grant, Anthony Hopkins and Barbara Streisand, as well as appearing in seven episodes of Friends and going even further to host Britain’s Next Top Model – later known as Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model.
Away from the realms of acting and modelling, Elle Macpherson is a highly successful business woman, creating her own brand of lingerie in 1989, “Elle Macpherson Intimates”. Today, it’s one of the most globally recognised lines of lingerie, most recently having been launched in Canada, the US and the Gulf States, following successes in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. She then went one step further, yet again, and expanded her brand into bath and body products, the “Elle Macpherson The Body beauty products”, which were launched globally in 2008.
