Well at least one mystery has been solved regarding Catherine McNeil - one of Australia's best-known modelling exports who has been on a bit of a self-imposed career hiatus for much of the past year and who, as it now emerges, also boasts New Zealand citizenship and travels on a Kiwi passport. The photo of McNeil that was Tweeted two days ago by Britain's Love magazine, together with the caption "Catherine McNeil is back!", was not part of any upcoming photoshoot for the magazine, but one of a handful of new digital shots of McNeil that have just been taken by McNeil's new New York management, Ford Models (curiously, the shot appears to have now been removed by Love). Here are the rest, supplied by Ford, which contacted us overnight for a little damage control, presumably not terribly happy with Timo Weiland's unfortunate Twitter shot of McNeil that we published yesterday. But while Love has yet to book her, newly-minted Ford Models agent Doll Wright tells frockwriter that McNeil has just shot 25 pages with a major photographer for a major international fashion title.

Wright declined to comment on the Weiland shot, in which McNeil is holding a beer bottle and her NZ passport, with a cigarette dangling from her lips. Wright was also unable to clarify whether McNeil is actually an Australian citizen or merely has permanent residency here.

But Wright did stress that McNeil has been "working really hard to get herself together. She's really determined. You can see what she looks like".

“She hasn’t shot Love or worked with [editor] Katie Grand yet" added Wright. "But we’re thrilled because obviously it shows that the support is still there. At the end of the day, the industry, at the level that’s she’s at and the calibre of people she has worked with, they respect her. Catherine McNeil is iconic for her generation. As a model, she will always be remembered for that and people at the top level of this business appreciate and respect the hard work that she’s put in for them. She’s worked her *** off for this business, she’s travelled the world non stop. On the back of Gemma Ward she helped put us on the map and maybe she had a moment where she wanted to take some time out.

"Life is a rollercoaster and these girls go through so much, they’re worked to the bone. Some burn out or fade out and are never heard of again. Or they do have some fire in their belly and they come back bigger and better than ever before. And in the case of Catherine McNeil, that’s what it’s going to be”.

Thrilling to even be discussing new work from MeowCat. Wondering if her mega ed is gonna drop in Sept? Cant even begin to guess which mag it's gonna be? Wondering if it's more towards Dazed or Vogue or somewhere in between?? And she really is looking fresh and glowing. The hiatus did her good. Viva McNeil.

^ Ermm with this look, I wouldn't be holding my breath for that.
I would be expected to see her in maybe Dazed & Confused or i-D or something else with some edge.

I'm not sure if any Vogue magazine would have much interest in her right now, I was thinking V maybe. I think she could do couture if she wanted. At least shows like Givenchy and JPG who have always booked her and probably wouldn't mind the new look. But it is Cat we're talking about... oh and she's way too pretty to pull off that nose ring.

I actually think the nose ring suits her... The magazine would probably be Numero or i-D.

Thinking Numero sounds like a good guess for her first major comeback ed. Wonder if its the dynamic duo of Kadel and Cat?! He always gets such beautiful images of her. That would be such a treat. The waiting is the hardest part.

I've never heard of Oui before but to go from Next to this? I don't really know exactly how it all works but I'm not that hopeful.
