Model Du Jour: Abbey Lee Kershaw 2.10.11

My favorite model du jour is Abbey Lee Kershaw. I have mentioned her before. I am just loving her right now, she is so exquisite. She has the innocence and radiance of a doll but yet can be very sexy. She is extremely versatile which obviously is key to being a model.

From " Birth Date: June 12, 1987 Country of origin: Australia. Hailing from down under, Abbey Lee Kershaw, got her big break after winning the 2004 Girlfriend Model Search. Since the fateful contest the Aussie beauty has risen through the ranks to become one of the most coveted faces in fashion. As of 2009, has 8 tattoos. "

Even beter... Abbey is COOL! Abbey Lee Kershaw is about as anti-fashion as a model can get. She has a nipple and nose ring. She has mentioned in interviews that her idea of a good time is drinking beer and listening to music in her underwear. She also cites the thing she misses most about her home country (Australia) is walking around barefoot! My kinda chick!

This isn’t, of course, the side of Abbey Lee that we see on the runway. She has walked for Alexander Wang, Chanel and Rodarte (she refused to walk in Alexander McQueen’s final show because of the heels- she takes her ankles seriously) and she’s been in V Magazine, Numero and Vogue Italia.

Anyway, lets take a look at some of my favorite shots and candids of her and see really how versatile she is.

Who is your favorite model?


  1. I like her and her style a lot:) She is really very beautiful and stylish!

  2. she's my favourite model too :)

  3. She is gorgeous yea, i like that she is a bit edgy/grungy too. For me it would be Jessica Stam and Coco Rocha.

  4. Elly- I love Coco too! shes cool as ice!

  5. I agree! Coco is like a little elf on the runway and she is so fresh and happy, that's why i love about her. I think my favourite all time catwalk model is Naomi Campbell too, the way she walks is just so impressive!
