With New York Fashion Week around the corner, we’re geared up to not only get excited about clothes and trends, but also about our favorite models of all time. The era of the supermodel may be dead, but that doesn’t mean that some of this rare breed still pops up from time to time, including the incomparable Abbey Lee Kershaw. An Australian beauty who was discovered on an Aussie beach by the same scout who discovered Miranda Kerr and Samantha Harris, Kershaw managed to walk 29 runways in her debut Fashion Week in 2008. By 2012, she ranked number five on Models.com’s list of top 50 models and was announced the New Supermodel by V Magazine, all before deciding to turn her attention to acting instead. Now 28 years old, with movies like Mad Max: Fury Road under her belt, Kershaw is poised to take over the acting world too.
And did we mention that she has a shoe line coming out later this year with Superga? She’s amazing.
