Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw discovered modeling in high school and moved to Melbourne to begin her stratospheric rise to supermodel. She has appeared in every major fashion magazine, but her pictorial by Terry Richardson in Purple Magazine caused quite a stir, appearing fully nude in solo shots and alongside two other models.
Advertising campaigns she has been featured in have included Alexander Wang, Anna Sui, Chanel, Gap, Gucci, Mulberry, See by Chloé and Calvin Klein overseas; in Australia, she has been featured in ad campaigns for Decjuba, Portmans and Wish.
She is currently signed to Next Model Management in Paris, London, New York and Milan.
She loves shopping at secondhand stores, saying, “I see potential in everything. It’s about opening your mind to what you can do to the garment: because they’re cheap, you can cut them or stitch them and if you stuff it up, it’s fine, it’s only two dollars. My favourite outfit was this black lace dress that I found in a vintage shop in Williamsburg, New York.”
Abbey Lee is a true wild child with multiple piercings and tattoos. In her rare spare time, she likes to paint and is a drummer in an Australian rock band.
