i've worked with erin and she is very grounded, smart and funny...not an easy task in this business....
I think she is a fine example of a model with a long lasting career and she was stunning in the coture shows in July.

I remember watching Erin on 'This Model Life' - she came across such a wonderful person.
I have search for a thread on this lovely lady but can't seem to find one.
Don't often see pictures of her but I thought it would be nice for her to have a thread.
Found a few on a random site, looks like they were from before she got into High Fashion:
Found this biography at http://www.showstudio.com
Erin O'Connor is a leading British Supermodel, who has pioneered one of the industry's most recognisable looks. Born and brought up in Walsall, in the midlands of England, her initial break came in 1995, when she was spotted at the Birmingham NEC 'Clothes Show' event by a Models 1's scout. Her first published pictures are from a Juergen Teller shoot for a 1996 issue of i-D, which are credited with launching an alternative concept of beauty. The media referred to the look as 'freak chic', and she became synonymous with the notion of 'imperfect beauty'. Karl Lagerfeld famously described her thus: 'Her face is like a Roman vase - not a standard beauty, but a modern anti-beauty.' Erin's signature look is that of angular, linear hauteur with a face that is fiercely symmetrical and porcelain pale. She has earned the accolade of being a 'muse' to several designers. She has inspired luxury labels from Chanel to Versace, being the face and Modigliani-referencing form of Chanel, Givenchy, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Armani, and Gaultier. Erin is praised extensively for her magnificent catwalk presence and has been on the catwalk for major design houses including John Galliano, Christian Dior, Donna Karen, Prada, Versace, Mui Mui, Giorgio Armani, Julien MacDonald, Jean Paul Gaultier, Badgley Mischka and Dolce and Gabanna. She has worked with fashion photographers across the board: Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Mario Testino, David Simms, and Jonathan de Villiers, and featured in a host of magazines including: Vogue, W, Elle, Nova, Harper's Bazaar, Harper's & Queen, i-D and Visionnaire. In March 2003, she featured in a three-part Channel 4 documentary 'This Model Life' which catapulted her to a domestic household name which was reinforced by her being featured on a Royal Mail Stamp.
