Elle Takes Perth

In this excerpt from The West Australian, WelleCo co-founder Elle Macpherson chats with Amanda Keenan about her week in our beautiful hometown of Perth.

That striking glamazon you saw shopping in Hay Street or power-walking down at Cottesloe beach this week? The one you spotted at the movies on Valentine’s Day? The one you thought looked just like Elle? Well, it was Elle.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson has been out and about in Perth this week on a secret visit to check in on WelleCo, the Claremont-based business she runs with local businesswoman Andrea Bux.

“I specifically came to town a few days earlier than I had to work because I love being in Perth,” Macpherson said.

“I just wanted to relax for a couple of days. Often I’m in and out and I said to myself: I’m not going to do that anymore.

“I went for a walk on the beach this morning and I went into town. I love Cottesloe. And I'll go to the office.”

It’s hard to believe the 1.82m, still-stunning former Sports Illustrated cover girl could go unnoticed. But she does.
