A report from Vogue Australia!
Vogue favourite Gemma Ward returns to modelling
How many people were first introduced to the world of high fashion models by way of Gemma Ward?
Since her white-hot debut in 2002 thanks to a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance on the reality television show Search for a Supermodel, Ward's modelling career has been legendary to say the least. Her involvement with Vogue is well-established; Ward appeared on numerous covers of Vogue, was the first cover model on Teen Vogue and was one of the youngest model to appear on US Vogue.
Her 'retirement' (it's modelling - they retire earlier than us laymen) was lamented by many in the industry. "Nobody looked like Gemma, she was a one-off" W magazine's fashion and style director Edward Enninful tweeted last month. "I wish Gemma Ward was still modelling!"
Lest we take unsubstantiated news and run with it, it seems like Ward truly will be making a comeback according to Patty Huntington at Frockwriter, who confirmed with IMG that the Perth-born model/actress was returning to modelling. She'll be appearing on IMG's homepage soon, so model-fans, keep refreshing that screen.
Other Australian IMG-stablemates include Miranda Kerr which makes for a good start in re-launching an international and highly successful career. Not too shabby at all.
I am a total, absolute, shopping addict. The whole phrase "retail therapy" is like... well, my life. The high (and guilt) from shopping is unlike anything else, and when I can, I put it to use. This is definitely something to laugh about as long as you don't have too bad a case of it (100K of debt, 70 credit cards, all you think about, talk about, etc....) I began to imagine what my shopping addiction would look like if it was its own beast outside of me, it's own feminine character – What would she look like? And so the White Label collection shoot was born: a diamond obsessed monster with glitter for hair and shoes made out of chandelier crystals, she's sort of 90's (like my high school days) sort of 80's (like my obsession for St. Elmo's Fire and Demi Moore's bedroom) and sort of absolutely insane. This girl sleeps in high heels, puts glitter in her cereal and watches infomercials all night long. She's a little bit clueless, a little bit crazy, and a little bit me... hopefully she's also a little bit you.
And who else other than our gorgeous muse Amanda Booth to model it?
