In 1981 with a loan of £100, Karen Millen bought 1,000 metres of cotton and began creating white shirts to sell to friends. Now, more than four decades later, the brands’ ICON series partners with one of the best in the business, International Supermodel Elle Macpherson. The series highlights iconic women from the Eighties, Nineties and Noughties.

This fourth volume, entitled All About Elle, has Elle Macpherson at the center. Instantly recognisable across the globe, she has sustained her reputation as The Body, the brains and the beauty.

Hear from Elle…

How would you define your personal style?

Elle: I believe style is a reflection of your attitude and your spirit; how you are in this world. My personal style tends to be ‘heart-led’ which makes it natural and effortless.

What are your favourite pieces from the edit?

Elle: There are so many great pieces from this collection. I really love the yellow suit, it had an easy masculine/feminine almost Japanese-inspired vibe. The long black dress was so chic, sexy and effortless and I see myself wearing it with flip flops even on the red carpet – that’s very much my style! I also loved the white oversized jacket. It was the first look we shot and it really set the tone for the whole shoot.

I think the look that surprised me the most was the fluorescent green short dress and jacket which I actually loved, it had a real ‘90s supermodel feel.

What are your wardrobe essentials?

Elle: My personal wardrobe essentials anchor to quality and simplicity, and I love white and cream, no matter what the season!
