    Supermodel Elle Macpherson raises eyebrows after deleting ‘Aborigine’ ancestry remarks in Vogue makeup tutorial


    Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson has raised eyebrows for making a surprising remark about her ancestry. 

    According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the 57-year-old stated in a new beauty video tutorial for Vogue: ‘My eyes are almost black, that’s the Aborigine in me.’ 

    ‘Being seven generations Australian they don’t reflect light the same way blue eyes do,’ she reportedly said in the clip.

    According to the publication, the video was edited to remove those remarks when Macpherson was asked to clarify whether she was claiming to be Indigenous, or regretted using the term ‘Aborigine’.

    Elle’s younger sister Mimi has since denied Elle’s claims, telling The Sydney Morning Herald: ‘We are not Indigenous nor have we traced our ancestry.’ 

    Born in Australia, Elle is the daughter of entrepreneur and sound engineer Peter Gow, and nurse Frances Gow.

    Her parents divorced when she was 10 years old. Elle later adopted her stepfather’s last name, Macpherson. 

    Elsewhere in her Vogue video, the model admitted that she didn’t have a skincare routine until she turned 50. 

    ‘When I was younger, I didn’t even have a skincare routine. I would go to work and the wonderful make-up artist would prep your skin for you and I didn’t have to worry,’ she said in the video.

    ‘I was 18 years old or 19 years old, even until I was 50, pretty much, I didn’t have a skincare program. 

    ‘People used to laugh at me and say you need to take more care, and I probably should’ve listened but today, I do take care,’ she said.
