Elle Macpherson is by far the hottest ray of sunshine on the island paradise, Bora Bora. Surrounded by aqua water and clear skies, Macpherson sparkles in a plunging baby blue one-piece. The first of her record five covers for Sports Illustrated, photographed by Brian Lanker, illuminates the assets that later dubbed her the nickname “The Body”.
Elle, along with Paulina Porizkova, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, quickly became a part of the new generation of supermodels. In 1994, Macpherson left her agency to form her own company; Elle Macpherson Inc. She also launched her lingerie collection ‘Elle Macpherson Intimates’ in partnership with Bendon Limited Apparel. The highly successful partnership was among the first instances of a crossover between a model and a fashion label. Currently, Macpherson hosts and executive produces NBC’s reality competition series Fashion Star.
