Catherine McNeil had a killer Spring 2014 season on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. Now she’s back home doing her thing for Australia’s Russh magazine.
McNeil first covered Russh way back when she was just starting out, before that infamous split with Ruby Rose and the consequent self-imposed modeling hiatus. The December/January 2013/2014 cover is proof she’s back and better than ever, using a fresh, minimal layout to highlight McNeil’s evergreen beauty. Russh have been taking the no-frills route with their covers for a while now, and a few wispy strands of hair are all this one needs in the way of distraction.
Over on the forums, people are equally impressed with McNeil’s comeback-turned-takeover. “This is truly stunning. The kind of cover I would immediately buy on the newsstands,” says Valentine27. “Get it McNeil. Flawless and fresh. Beautiful cover shot,” adds zoom.
Elusiveness is one of Catherine’s greatest attributes. She doesn’t tweet, and posts just enough Instagram selfies to satisfy her 20,000+ followers. Though she does open up via less-than-140 character questionnaire answers on the Russh blog, revealing that she lives for carbs, lavender oil and vacation time, reads Stephen King, and listens to The Black Keys. More interestingly, she’s most looking forward to turning 30. And given her exponential trajectory, we wouldn’t be surprised if her third decade is her most successful yet.
