Full Circle - Catherine McNeil

Australian comeback-kid Catherine McNeil reunites with one of her longest running collaborators and key supporters Mario Testino for the September 2013 issue of British Vogue. McNeil first rose to prominence after being summoned to meet with Testino in 2007 as a wide-eyed seventeen year old getting her first taste of the Big Apple. Testino immediately cast the Brisbane native in the Fall/Winter 2007 Hugo Boss, Donna Karan, and D&G campaigns and signed her to an exclusive six month editorial contract. With Testino's golden seal of approval, McNeil soon found herself on the covers of Paris Vogue, V Magazine, French Numéro, Australian Vogue and Russh, and as a staple editorial girl for American Vogue. Following two years of intense modelling activity and scrutiny, McNeil retreated from the modelling stage to regroup and to lead some semblance of a normal day-to-day existence. For most models, an extended hiatus from the modelling spotlight is often a fast-track to obscurity, not so for McNeil who returned to the Fall/Winter 2013 runways as one of the most in demand faces of the season. McNeil showed true grit and stunning versatility as she navigated 42 blue chip runway bookings including Givenchy, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Saint Laurent. With McNeil's September 2013 British Vogue editorial tryst in which she plays the role of a prima donna replete with a Louise Brooks bob and her trademark tattoos, coupled with recent American and Paris Vogue editorial bookings and a Prada Fall/Winter 2013 campaign slot, there can be no shadow of a doubt that Catherine McNeil has landed firmly back in the winner's circle.
