Elle Macpherson

born Eleanor Nancy Gow on 29 March 1964, in Killara, New South Wales, Australia

Elle Macpherson is a Australian supermodel & actress. She is most famous worldwide for her four cover appearances on Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue in the 1980s & 1990s. Nicknamed "The Body", Elle is six feet (1.83 m) tall. She is named the body as she has such a great physique. Once I bought a magazine just as it had a picture of her in it. And I have only ever bought 2 glamour mags.

Macpherson is the eldest of four children. Her parents divorced when she was fourteen, & her mother later married Neil Macpherson. Macpherson then changed her last name for her stepfather's.

She studied law for one year at the University of Sydney.

While vacationing in Tasmania, Macpherson was discovered & signed to Chick Model Management. Macpherson became an international star through her appearance in ELLE magazine. She appeared in every issue for six straight years. During this time she married (at age 21) ELLE creative manager Gilles Bensimon. Eventually she gained even more exposure through Sports Illustrated magazine's annual swimsuit issue. She appeared on the cover a record four times, including three years in a row.
