Elle Macpherson was born on the 29th of March, 1964. Macpherson was one of the first "Supermodels" along with other models like Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. She has appeared in several movies and television programs, and is a very successful business woman.

Elle Macpherson's birthplace was Killara, a suburb of Sydney Australia.

Macpherson began studying pre-law at the University of Sydney and completed just one year of study.

She then went on to grace the cover of the popular Sports Illustrated magazine for a record 4 times. Elle Macpherson took advantage of her Supermodel status and appeared in exercise videos, swimsuit calendars, countless magazine shoots, and modeling shows.

Elle Macpherson has appeared in several movies since her first brief walk in acting appearance on the Woody Allen film "Alice" in 1990. Other films include "Sirens" the film of the Australian artist Norman Lindsay, where she had to put on 20 lb.. for the role, "Batman and Robin", and "Jane Eyre". She has also appeared on popular television programs like "Friends" and "Saturday Night Live".

She is also very successful financially and is one Australia's richest people. She has business interests in the Fashion Cafe Restaurant and has her own range of lingerie called "Elle Macpherson Intimates".
