Erin O'Connor is an English fashion model, who was also the muse of Haute Couture designer Alexander McQueen due to her height and androgynous look. In 2007, The Sunday Times considered her to be the 39th richest person in the United Kingdom, under the age of 30 with an estimated wealth of $12 million.



BackgroundEdit

Being brought up by an Irish father, O'Connor was raised a strict Catholic, however has always had an interest in the modelling industry despite it's views on nudity and sex. Her intrigue for the industry got her scouted as a model during a school trip to the Birmingham Clothes Show, however she didn't hit her big break in the industry until she was 18 years old.

After her feature in the undressed issue of I-D Magazine, she soon became the favourite of many couture designers such as Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, Prada, Versace, Miu Miu, John Galliano and Dolce & Gabbana, with Lagerfeld describing her as "one of the best models in the world". In addition, her long limbs also allowed her to dominate on the catwalk as well as behind the camera, known for her signature dramatic walk, she has walked for not only the designers listed above, but Julien Macdonald, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani and Jean-Paul Gautier. Her accumulated success has allowed her to become one of the richest British models of all time, as well as making her a notable figure in the public eye.

Much like Team Coco from the U.S. version, Erin's team currently is the only team from the U.K. version not to win a campaign, and also produced the first-runner-up of the season.
