Elle Macpherson returns to catwalk at 46

Thursday March 11, 2010

They say 'with age comes beauty'. And the phrase certainly rang true as Elle Macpherson sashayed down the runway at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The supermodel was defying her 46 years as she took to the catwalk in a rose-coloured gown by Louis Vuitton Ready to Wear.

Showing rising stars just how it's done, the mum-of-two shared the scene with David Walliam's fiancée Lara Stone, and British fashionistas Alexa Chung and Daisy Lowe.

Designer Marc Jacobs expressed his desire to use a variety of models to showcase his collection.

"Designers are always saying they’re going to do a collection for women, but then every girl on the runway is under twenty," he said.

"I wanted a variety of ages and sizes. We set out to cast gorgeous women - women who feel happy to put their make-up on, get dressed up, get all their accessories."
