Overview

Catherine McNeil's modeling career began when she was fourteen years old. Then the Australian beauty won a models search competition and decided to develop a career on the catwalks. In the beginning she picked up only local jobs, but then signed a contract with NEXT agency. Shortly after (in 2006), she was sent to meet fashion photographer Mario Testino, who immediately signed an exclusive six months contract with the young model. During that time, Testino photographed McNeil for covers and campaigns, and gave her career a great starting point.

In 2008, Catherine McNeil was photographed by Mario Sorrenti for the French Vogue calendar and Patrick Demarchelier photographed her for the Pirelli calendar and in 2008 McNeil became the face of Hermes.

Catherine McNeil continued to get huge campaigns. She became the face of Louis Vuitton Cruise ad campaign and was photographed alongside with Claudia Schiffer for Dolce & Gabbana resort.

In 2010 McNeil became the face of Givenchy.

Off the runways
