Full Bio


One of the original ‘supermodels’, Elle Macpherson is an Australian model, actress, television host and businesswoman. Renowned for both her beauty and business acumen, she has enjoyed an extremely successful career, which has spanned over 30 years. A disarming public speaker, Elle Macpherson has given talks on a number of topics, from her fascinating life as one of the world’s greatest supermodels to business and branding development and her career as an entrepreneur.

Elle Macpherson is perhaps one of the most successful and instantly recognisable supermodels of our time. Her modelling career began in 1982, when she appeared in a television commercial for TAB cola. From there, she appeared on the covers of all the major fashion magazines, including Cosmopolitan, Vogue, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar. She also graced the cover of Elle and cemented her profile as a high-profile model by appearing in every issue of the magazine for an incredible six years.

Her real springboard to fame, however, was her record five cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Not only did the feat garner much more exposure for Elle, it also lead to Time Magazine nicknaming her ‘The Body’ – an epithet which has stayed with her throughout her career.

In addition to being a hugely successful model, Elle is an accomplished actress and television host. She has been in a number of films, working alongside Hugh Grant, George Clooney, Anthony Hopkins and Barbra Streisand. She also appeared in five episodes of Friends as Joey Tribbiani’s roommate, played agent Claudia Foster in The Beautiful Life and hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. Most recently, in 2010, Macpherson became the host and executive producer of Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model.

Aside from modelling and acting, Elle Macpherson has established herself as an astute businesswoman and entrepreneur. She has released a number of extremely popular calendars, as well as a fitness video, Your Personal Best – The Body, which was voted the year’s best by Billboard magazine.

In 1989, she created and launched her own lingerie brand, Elle Macpherson Intimates, which has been met which remarkable international success and is the best-selling lingerie line in Great Britain and Australia. She also expanded her brand to include bath and beauty products in 2005, creating a line of products called The Body.

In 2014, Macpherson co-founded WelleCo, and released its flagship product, an alkalising wellness supplement, The Super Elixir.

Elle is internationally recognised as a supermodel and an authority on fashion, branding, women’s rights and lifestyle. She is an excellent moderator, host and presenter and speaks on her experiences as both a model and a business entrepreneur and covers branding, motivation, media, woman’s rights, women’s health and wellbeing.
