She was discovered only five years ago, yet Abbey Lee Kershaw is already being hailed Australia's next big supermodel.

In addition, New York fashion magazine V called Kershaw "the biggest fashion export from Down Under since Elle Macpherson joined the ranks of Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington". Not bad for a small town girl who a few years ago "didn't even know modelling was a job".
