Grinners Are Winners

Australian supermodel Catherine McNeil shows off an exuberant smile for photographer Terry Tsiolis in Allure's June 2013 issue. Entitled "Ripple Effect", the Allure editorial could be a direct reference to McNeil's stellar comeback at the Fall/Winter 2013 show collections which saw the twenty-three year old Brisbane native walk in 42 blue chip shows including Givenchy, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, and Saint Laurent. Discovered at age fourteen at the Girlfriend Magazine Model Search competition, McNeil was propelled into modelling's spotlight via a six month exclusive editorial contract with Mario Testino, landing her on the covers of V Magazine, Paris Vogue, and within the pages of American Vogue. In 2009, at the height of her success McNeil retreated from modelling amidst speculation about her health, possible burnout, and personal issues. Following a switch of management from Next Model Management to Ford Models, McNeil returned to the runway in September 2011 to a lukewarm response walking for Matthew Williamson during London Fashion Week. Currently placed with Marilyn Model Management, McNeil appears to have found the right mix displaying a renewed vigour, a refreshed outlook, and with wisdom and pure joy emanating from behind those piercing green eyes. Signs of McNeil's definitive return to fashion's inner circle include Spring/Summer 2013 campaigns for Armani Beauty, Dior Eye Wear, and Kenneth Cole, and a rash of editorial appearances for Dazed & Confused, V, Antidote, W, and Japanese Vogue. McNeil's hot-off-the-press Fall/Winter 2013 Donna Karan campaign shot by Mikael Jansson confirms McNeil's unequivocal return to modelling's elite ranks.
