Abbey Lee Kershaw Talks Nudity, Weight Issues, and Runway Injuries to Australian TV

Abbey Lee Kershaw was interviewed for Today Tonight, an Australian current affairs program, while on set for her third Vogue Australia cover by fashion writer Patty Huntington.

In the video segment, which can be seen here, Kershaw discusses her refusal to wear Alexander McQueen's alien shoes for his spring runway show after tearing a ligament during a fall on the runway in New York and fainting in Paris from a too-tight corset. She hopes to do McQueen this season, but says of her distaste for towering runway heels, "health and safety regulations have to come into play at some point."

Abbey Lee, who was discovered on a beach in Australia at 15 and walked in 48 shows last September, weighs in on models' healthy eating issues, likening herself to a professional body builder and making no apologies: "An elite performer is always put under extra pressure that the rest of society can argue and might not quite understand."

Kershaw also talks nudity in fashion photography, saying it's "imperative to the expression of fashion" but that she's very comfortable saying no to a photographer. She adds she's never done anything too outrageous in front of the camera.
