With a star that shines bright on and off the runway, Abbey Lee Kershaw seems destined for the kind of career that extends beyond fashion. Abbey’s unmistakable platinum tresses and doe-eyes appear in just about every beauty & fragrance ad in search of chic cachet. Brands like Gucci, Calvin Klein and Versace have all fallen for Kershaw’s cool.
In 2007, Kershaw signed with Next Management and by March had moved to New York City. On 11 December, Models.com named her the “Next Superstar”.
Kershaw has starred in the fragrance ads for Gucci's new "Flora" scent since 2008.
Kershaw has 10 piercings in total: on her nose (her left nostril), on the nipple, a pierced belly button, and seven on her ears. She also has various tattoos, including; a small peace sign on the palm of her hand, an owl on her middle finger, the symbol for Gemini on her ankle, and a tattoo reading "truth", hidden on the inside of her bottom lip. She has recently added two on the side of her stomach done in white ink. Kershaw is also an artist who does abstract painting and uses oil pastels.
