I heart Abbey Lee Kershaw
Abbey Lee Kershaw is my favourite model of the moment.
As one of the most coveted faces in fashion, 23year old Kershaw is currently featured in the following campaigns for Fall / Winter 2010: Chanel, Mulberry, Fendi, Ana Sui, Calvin Klein, Jaeger, Gap, H&M, as well as Alexander Wang’s Campaign Video! She particularly caught my eye after she closed the Chanel Spring 2010 couture show and opened the Chanel Fall/Winter10/11 show – Karl Lagerfeld does have magnificent taste!
Also hailing from Australia (like me), Kershaw was born in Melbourne and began her rise to fame after winning the 2004 Girlfriend Magazine Modelling Competition. Quite a humble beginning seeing as she is now ranked 5th on the Top 50 Female Models list by models.com. Kershaw is the face of Gucci’s ‘Flora’ fragrance. She has graced the cover of Australian Vogue three times, as well as Vogue Nippon (Japan) twice. She has also been on the cover of Korean, Russian and German Vogue; Numero magazine four times; and Dazed and Confused twice.
Currently living in New York, NY; Kershaw has her nose and nipple pierced. As of 2009 she had eight tattoos. She is also reportedly friends with fellow models; Karlie Kloss Daisy Lowe, Freja Beha Erichsen, Cat McNeil, Karmen Pedaru and Jonatan Frenk.
Vogue Australia November Feature below:
For the November issue of Vogue Australia, Abbey Lee Kershaw graces the cover and also transforms into a 1970’s disco diva in the fashion story ‘The Last Days of Disco’. Gorgeous silhouettes highlight the striking 70’s vibe. Pieces by Emilio Pucci, Gucci and Hermes capture the feeling to perfection…xx
