The Comeback Trail

Australian model Catherine McNeil is officially back on modelling's A-list following an impressive string of select appearances throughout the Spring/Summer 2013 collections. McNeil who has been noticeably absent over the past two years from the glare of the runway with poor health, burn out and personal issues all being cited as possible reasons for her extended break from modelling. McNeil has laid all rumours to rest with a stunning return to the catwalk appearing at Helmut Lang, Barbara Bui, Kenzo, Isabel Marant, Guy Laroche and Hermés. The twenty-three year old modelling sensation has industry pundits cooing again over her recent cover appearances for French Numéro and Australian Vogue shot respectively by Jean Baptiste Mondino and Benny Horne. McNeil who was discovered at the age of thirteen via the Girlfriend modelling competition, revealed to Who magazine earlier in 2012, "I started modelling young and I was blessed my modelling career took off quickly. But once I left home I needed to act like an adult, and I wasn't one. I needed to take step back so that I could properly understand who I am. After taking time to sort out my life, it finally seems like everything is falling into place." McNeil looks positively radiant, displaying the supermodel aura that propelled her into the limelight during the initial stages of her career. More importantly, McNeil appears to have rediscovered her passion and enthusiasm for modelling which will make her a muse once again for photographers and designers alike.
