She's 6 foot tall, clever and beautiful. She started modelling at 17 and after appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine a handful of times, Elle Macpherson was given the nick name 'The Body'. She became one of the famous supermodels of the 1980s and 1990s, alongside Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer. Now, Elle is an extremely successful business woman.

Elle talks to us about the term 'supermodel' and how one of her business ventures used fashion as entertainment.
