Elle Macpherson, the 57-year-old supermodel intrigued many users after comments of Aborigine ancestry.
During a make-up tutorial with vogue, the model gave vogue subscribers her latest beauty tricks.
Elle’s beauty secrets
While the mother of two reached for all her beauty tools, she chatted away about what her real beauty secret is.
The WelleCo founder revealed that feeling good from within is key to feeling good on the outside.
While some reach for their best anti-aging serums, Elle chooses to reach for a supplement to keep all toxins out of her body.
The model also made some comments about her ancestry which left many heads turned.
“My eyes are almost black, that’s the Aborigine in me”
This remark has since been edited out of the video as using this term is generally perceived as insensitive.
Macpherson’s younger sister commented that they are not indigenous nor have they traced their ancestry.
Elle Macpherson has since not commented on the statement made yet. Her younger sister, however, seemed to have been very annoyed when clearing up the comments made in the tutorial.
While Elle’s modelling career might have come to a standstill, the beauty icon still seems to have a hold on the fashion industry with her established brand WelleCo.
