Erin O'Connor

Model

Erin O'Connor is a leading British Supermodel. Born and brought up in the Midlands of England, she was spotted by a Models 1 scout at The Clothes Show in Birmingham. Her first published pictures were by Juergen Teller for a 1996 issue of i-D, and are credited with launching an ‘alternative concept of beauty’.

O’Connor is noted for her angular, highly symmetrical profile and porcelain-pale complexion. She is synonymous with Charlotte Cotton’s notion of 'imperfect beauty' in 1990s fashion photography, and Karl Lagerfeld has described her as ‘a modern anti-beauty’.

O’Connor has been associated with luxury labels from Chanel, Versace, Givenchy, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Armani, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Erin has modelled on the catwalk for John Galliano, Christian Dior, Donna Karen, Prada, Versace, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani, Julien MacDonald, Jean Paul Gaultier, Badgley Mischka and Dolce and Gabanna among many others. She has worked with many leading fashion photographers including Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Steven Klein; Nick Knight, Mario Testino, David Sims, and Jonathan de Villiers, and featured in magazines including Vogue, W, Elle, Nova, Harper's Bazaar, Harper's & Queen, i-D and Visionaire. In March 2003 she featured in a three-part Channel 4 documentary 'This Model Life' which confirmed her as a household name in the UK.
