Gail Elliott
Going through some old scans, I can't believe there's not a little thread for this model, who I fondly remember from the 80's and early 90's.

The Style Mistress at couriermail.com.au brings us up to date with her career (image source - blogs.news.com.au):

The Style Mistress grills supermodel Gail Elliott

Supermodel Gail Elliott rose to fame in the 80s, gracing countless covers of Vogue, Elle and Harpers Bazaar and stalking the catwalks with girlfriends Cindy Crawford, Yasmin Le Bon and Helena Christensen.

A favourite of designers Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, John Galliano and Marc Jacobs and constantly jetting between the fashion capitals, she was continually searching for chic, comfortable pieces she could pack in her port.

Now residing in Australia, Gail designs exactly that for her super-luxe line, Little Joe by Gail Elliott New York; sexy, sumptuous slip dresses, feminine camis and easy, stylish separates in slippery silks, pure cottons and cozy cashmeres. Wear her designs, and you will be in fine company; Cindy Crawford, Naomi Watts, Sharon Stone, Jessica Simpson, Elle McPherson, Helena Christensen, Yasmin Le Bon and Elizabeth Hurley are all devoted wearers of her elegant line.

Gail has just swung open the doors of her new boutique in James Street, Fortitude Valley. Slip in and also be tempted by some of her own favourite brands sourced from all over the globe including Rich & Skinny Denim, True Religion denim, Issla Swimwear, Park Vogel, True Religion, Marc Jacobs Perfume, Carolina Barbieri Jewellery and a diffusion line of delicious Little Joe scented candles.
