Abbey Lee Kershaw is an Australian high fashion supermodel. She began modeling at the age of 17, after winning a local model competition in 2004. A year later, she was spotted on the beach in Sydney by a model scout, who promptly signed her with a local agency. By 2007, she was signed by Next and recognized as a major rising star in the fashion industry. She is ranked as the 21st highest-earning model of all time.

Since then, Kershaw has been on the cover of 4 copies of Australian Vogue, 14 copies of V Magazine, and has had campaigns with Gucci, Pirelli, Chanel, Rag & Bone, and more.

Kershaw is a friend of photographer Terry Richardson, with whom she has done multiple shoots. Infamously, the two shot an explicit erotic spread for French magazine Purple Fashion in 2009, which caused up uproar and malicious rumors that Richardson manipulated young models into overly sexual photoshoots. Kershaw leapt to his defense, saying that the shoot was what she had wanted to do, and that she was completely unashamed.

Kershaw is a friend of fellow models Freja Beha Erichsen, Karmen Pedaru, Joan Smalls, Catherine McNeil, Crystal Renn and Courtney Eaton.
