Elle Macpherson Tapped for Top Model

Elle Macpherson has a new gig: The 45-year-old beauty will replace Lisa Snowdon as the host of Britain’s Next Top Model. Macpherson told Digital Spy that she is “really enthusiastic and motivated to work with the team of Britain’s Next Top Model to create an authentic and exciting program, both for the contestants and the viewers at home,” adding that she saw her mission as “finding the face that can represent the next generation.” The show, which airs on the British network Living, will begin its sixth season this spring. Macpherson may be best known as the record holder for the most Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, with five cover appearances, but she has also launched a successful business career including her lingerie line, Elle Macpherson Intimates, and “The Body,” a line of skincare products.
