Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Made her return to modeling by fronting a major new TV, press and billboard campaign for Marks & Spencer, the chain department store of the UK. Her appearance alongside Erin O'Connor, Laura Bailey and other younger models is intended to portray the wide variety of choices of the M&S clothing range, as well as the fact that older women are equally entitled to look good.
