Elle Macpherson

Go Back


Elle is perhaps best known as a supermodel, nicknamed ‘the body’, but her illustrious career has been marked by variety. As well as her hugely successful modelling career she is also an actress, businesswoman, and producer.

Elle Macpherson (born 29 March 1964) is perhaps best known for her record five cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beginning in the 1980s leading to her nickname “the body”. She is also known as the founder and primary model for a series of business ventures including Elle Macpherson Intimates, a lingerie line, and “The Body,” a line of skin care products. She became the host and executive producer of Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model and is Executive Producer & Host of NBC upcoming Fashion Star.

Elle made her movie debut playing an artist’s model in the 1994 Sirens. After Sirens, she followed with a two-year series of acting roles, appearing in films such as Woody Allen’s Alice, Batman & Robin alongside George Clooney, The Edge with Anthony Hopkins, and The Mirror Has Two Faces with Barbra Streisand.

In 1999, Elle appeared in five episodes of the American TV series Friends, as Joey’s roommate and girlfriend, Janine Lecroix. She went on to act in the movie Jane Eyre with William Hurt, and she has also appeared alongside Ben Stiller and Sarah Jessica Parker in If Lucy Fell.
