Early Life & Education

Elle Macpherson, a prominent figure in the media, was born on March 29, 1964, in Killara, Australia, to Peter Gow and Frances Gow

She was raised alongside her three siblings: two sisters, Mimi Macpherson and Elizabeth Macpherson, and a brother named Brendon Macpherson

After attending Killara High SchoolElle Macpherson obtained her Higher School Certificate in 1981. Although she briefly dabbled in law studies at the University of Sydney for a year, her passion for modeling led her down a different path.


Elle Macpherson, the Aussie model turned business mogul, shot to stardom in the 1980s. She started her career with a bang in 1982 with a commercial and quickly became a household name, Down Under. But she didn’t stop there. 

Alongside strutting her stuff on the catwalk, she delved into business, launching her successful lingerie line. And let’s not forget her claim to fame: gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue a whopping five times, earning her the catchy title “The Body” from Time magazine back in ’89.

Despite her modeling triumphs, Elle Macpherson‘s acting gigs always hit different high notes. Sure, she made a splash in the ’80s and ’90s as a sought-after cover girl, popping up in flicks like Sirens and Batman & Robin, not to mention that memorable stint on Friends

But Elle‘s heart was in business. She went on to create her own lingerie empire, Elle Macpherson Intimates and even branched out into skincare with The Body line, both of which turned out to be big wins for her.
