Aussie invasion

Just a few years ago, the only hits from down under were Gemma Ward and Nicole Trunfio. But right now there are Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee, Alice Burdeu and Skye Stracke… all making their rounds at the international modelling circuit and even rocking couture. So are Aussies the next big thing?

Check out the latest additions:

Sarah Stephens
I know I got to give her a mention after she appeared on the cover of Russh. The bangs give her such an interesting persona— very edgy and Brit-chic (she is in fact, born in England).

Myf Sheperd
Her breakthrough is probably walking Prada resort 09′, giving her best shot at the ‘blank look’. I am seeing some versatility in this face.

P.S McNeil, Abbey and Sarah are all under NEXT. Now we know where their talent scouts go…

    I feel that NcNeil is the only one (after Gemma Ward) with any real potential for a long career. Most models now work for three to four seasons and disappear off the radar, especially the “blank stare” ones.

    I love Abbey but she needs to make a super impact in the editorial and advertisng scene soon. There are so many fresh faces around the corner waiting for the big break.
