Elle Macpherson is the host of NBC's reality competition series "Fashion Star" that searches for the next great brand. She also recently starred as Claudia Foster, the high-powered owner of a successful New York City modeling agency, in The CW's drama "The Beautiful Life: TBL."

A prominent figure in business, fashion, film and television, Elle Macpherson oversees one of the most well-known and expanding brand names in lingerie, Elle Macpherson Intimates. She recently diversified and created her own body products label, Elle Macpherson The Body. In March 2008 Elle signed a three-year global deal with Revlon as an ambassador and spokeswoman.

Elle Macpherson Intimates was created in 1990 with New Zealand-based Bendon Group, featuring co-created designs, and launched in Australia and New Zealand with immediate success. In 2000, Macpherson and Bendon repeated their success by bringing the brand to the UK, where it is available in over 300 stores. In 2003 Elle Macpherson Intimates was launched in the Gulf States, Canada and across the U.S. She is intimately involved in the creation of each collection, advertising, marketing, and strategy, and appeared in advertising until becoming Creative Director in 2002. Today Elle Macpherson Intimates is one of the most globally recognized fashion lingerie brands. Elle Macpherson The Body, focusing on bath and body products, was launched in Australia and New Zealand in 2008 and will continue to expand globally in late 2009.

Macpherson's career began in 1982 with a commercial for TAB cola that rocketed her into the modeling world as the favorite "Australian girl next door." In 1986, a Time Magazine cover story pronounced her "The Big Elle." She then appeared on a record six covers of the Sports Illustrated Annual Swimsuit Edition.

Macpherson guest starred in multiple episodes of "Friends" and film credits include Woody Allen's "Alice"; "Sirens," opposite Hugh Grant; "Batman," alongside George Clooney; "The Edge" with Anthony Hopkins; and "The Mirror Has Two Faces" with Barbra Streisand.
