Vogue Australia November 2010
Model: Abbey Lee Kershaw  
Photographed by Nicole Bentley (Work Agency)
Styled by Naomi Smith
I think she has a lovely look. And I love a big part of all the work she does, though I did have a little complication finding an editorial of her with her clothes on. Not that I have anything against the more artistic editorials, I like most of them.

  1. Interesting that many of her editorials feature no clothing at all…I'm not sure I would want to do only nude work as a model, but i can see why people are fascinated with her body–it's so strikingly long and lean, and, of course, a bit on the thin side. But I love her look and her personal style!

  2. Haha yes, she's always got her chest exposed or something in most of them! I love Abbey Lee, she's prob my fave model I think x
