Elyse Taylor, Australian Lightning!

🎵I met a great lady, she made me nervous🎵
🎵She took me in and gave me breakfast🎵

Elyse Taylor (born 20 October 1986) is an Australian model who has made quite an international splash. This is appropriate as Elyse considers herself a water baby who feels best at the beach. Most people, though, think she belongs best in the pages of the world's top fashion magazines.

Victoria's Secret fans probably know Elyse Taylor best from her appearance in the 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (Segment 3, Pink Planet).

For a top international model, Elyse got her start relatively late in life. Everything is relative, and being discovered at the ripe old age of 18 by the agent of a model friend is not the norm in these elite circles. It's considered relatively normal to be discovered by the age of 14 in many areas of the world, so Elyse did things a bit differently.

Elyse is from Sydney, Australia. There are a lot of pretty girls in Sydney, so Elyse must have really stood out. But, one look at her and you will understand what the agent saw in her.

After getting her first catwalk appearance, the Spring/Summer 2005 show, under her belt, Elyse was on her way. She worked steadily after that, but 2009 seemed to be a high point in her career. Aside from the Victoria's Secret show, Elyse also appeared on the cover of Vogue Australia and GQ Australia. This followed covers for Elle Sweden in September 2005 and Elle Poland in January 2006, so clearly, the world was catching on to the charms of Elyse Taylor.

In 2011, Elyse was named to represent surf brand O'Neill, very appropriate for a water baby. This gave her a start in judging competitions, as she judged the brand's O'Neill Model Search. This experience proved handy when Elyse appeared as a guest judge on cycle 9 of Australia's Next Top Model in 2015.

Married to Seth Campbell in 2014, Elyse had daughter Lila Louise in March of that year. She and Campbell reportedly split in 2016.

Having a baby didn't slow Elyse down, however. She was named as the face of Australian make-up brand Nude by Nature in March 2017.

Taylor now lives in New York City with her daughter but maintains close ties with her native Australia.

Modeling has changed so much now. We didn’t used have a voice, but now thanks to social media everyone has become three dimensional. The downside of showing every facet of your life is that if you make one wrong move, everything can end in five minutes.

I work out every single day unless I’m spending the day with my daughter. I do genuinely enjoy exercising, and find it really clears my mind and definitely helps get my body moving when I travel so much.

The boldest move in my life was probably moving to NYC when I was only 17. It changed my life forever.

Living in New York City where everyone’s on top of each other can feel a little dirty. I take time to really cleanse my skin and focus on keeping it clean and moisturized.

Someone once said: "You don't have to explain why you want what you want, do what you do, love what you love, or need what you need. You are allowed to live a life some people don't understand." This advice has always stayed with me.
