Abbey Lee Kershaw makes return to modelling with Gucci

Posted on

Melbourne-born model Abbey Lee Kershaw has returned in the latest Gucci advertising campaign in a new set of images shot by Turkish-British photo duo, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. 

The 26-year-old became one of fashion’s biggest names after signing with Next Model Management back in 2007. The former face of Chanel’s ready-to-wear, she also starred in adverts for the Gucci Flora scent, Tom Ford and Versace, and appeared in runway shows around the world before deciding to take a break from fashion. 

She walked her last shows over a year ago, appearing on the catwalk for Anna Sui and Alexander Wang in New York City back in early 2012. Since then, Kershaw has spent most of her time on set for the latest film in the ‘Mad Max’ series, “Mad Max: Fury Road,” starring alongside Tom Hardy and fellow fashionista Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Kershaw has also found time to drum in rock band Our Mountain over the past few years.

The previous Gucci campaign (for Spring/Summer 2013) starred Polish supermodel Anja Rubik and Estonian rising star Karmen Pedaru. Kershaw isn’t the only model to be making a comeback this season — Christy Turlington Burns has also reemerged, bagging major league advertising work for brands including Calvin Klein and Prada.
