really, you think so? she's had very successful seasons from 2007 to 2009, with multiple covers for numero and australian vogue, long-term contracts with hugo boss, dior jewelry, and big time campaigns for donna karan, dolce & gabbana, JPG, givenchy, etc.

i think maybe after her 6 month exclusive with mario testino was over, things have slowed down a tad before her big breakdown from modeling, but i never thought she was a one-hit wonder.

cat shall rise again (this season, i hope)

I disagree with you too, she was for many seasons 2007-2009 in models.com rankings with many campaigns and runway shows. Happytrail i totally second your post !!

Really that's even more of a proof, didn't know she was in the list in 2011, honestly i haven't seen that much of work of her lately.

well what i mean was she was just everywhere and then she just completely fell off the radar (apparently only to me at least). i dont think anyone can argue that she went from like 0 to 60 and then back to 0 within like two years. she was on the cover of french vogue and the face of versace and now what? an edit in vogue australia? walking in a few minor shows?

^ But that is still not the definition of one hit wonder. She stopped working by choice.

idk. i heard that people were over her because of the hype (i read some article called "the cat mcneil effect" on style.com about model agents fearing overexposure) and she couldn't exactly fit into the samples anymore.

I thought she quit for a while, because she got sick, in fact i remember she was going to be on shows, and she ended up skipping the whole season because she got really sick. And after that, her work declined a bit, and it's gotta be by choice as you say. But i Agree woth you jacquelineo, that's still not the definition of one hit wonder.

Even if Cat didn't quit by choice, that still wouldn't make her a one-hit wonder. She has quite an impressive record and definitely more than 15 minutes of fame.
