Elle Macpherson To Be Seen On Fox 8 On Britain’s Next Top Model
Elle Macpherson will be seen on our TV screens as host of Britain’s Next Top Model.
The Body will debut on Fox 8 at Tuesday January 25 at 7.30pm. I am interested to see how she goes in the role.
Laurie Penny writes an interesting article in the News Stateman and thought provoking article about the negative images this show portrays about and to young women. I particularly liked this statement:
The reason America’s Next Top Model and its 20 local variants have been so wildly successful is that they formalise the rules of late-capitalist femininity as experienced by young women in the west: life may be hard and jobs may be few, but if you are beautiful enough, if you are thin and pretty and perky and prepared to submit to any conceivable humiliation, you too might have a chance of “making it”.
It would also appear Elle Macpherson won’t be the host of the Australian version of Project Runway. The rumours are still strong that the gig will either go to Nicole Trufino or Megan Gale. I wonder if Megan Gale’s chance of getting the role has now decreased now it is rumoured she is shagging a 22 year old. (Source: TV Tonight)
