Elle Macpherson Shows Off The Body In Harem Pants

In her catwalk days Elle Macpherson was known as The Body but she’s definitely got brains too judging by how she can perfectly put together an outfit.

The 47-year-old model has had 30 years of fashion experience and she just gets better and better every day. She drove every reveller at a showbiz party in London wild when she attended the bash in leopard print harem trousers and a stylish white blazer.

It’s a busy time for Elle as she’s currently preparing to make the next series of Britains Next Top Model on Sky Living.

Very can reveal she is personally playing a hand in the casting process, visiting London’s coolest bars and restaurants to recruit potential girls to star in the show and compete to be a model.

Elle – a busy mother of two – has been spotted in the upmarket Knightsbridge and Belgravia areas scanning the scene for the stars of the future. The girls she recruits will need to have mountains of confidence to live up to the fashion standards set by their glamorous mentor!

Even more frightening for the girls is fashion designer Julien Macdonald, stylist Grace Woodward and male model Charley Speed will join Elle on the judging panel. Last year, Julien’s straight-talking criticism reduced many to tears – diva!

The show will air in the summer and we expect the catwalk legend is planning her TV outfits already. It helps that she has some cool items in her wardrobe already like the harem trousers she wore to the recent celebrity party.

Harem trousers are so popular this season and if you want ones in animal print like Elle’s check out theKillah printed jersey harem trousers

Or try the bold print Only rico harem pants

Wear with a simple but well-fitting top like the South ribbed vest, now 3 for 2 at Very

The Savoir white honeycomb jacket is a good match to what Elle wore

Most women need at least their keys, mobile phone and cash on a night out and organised Elle keeps hers in a tidy clutch bag like the Irregular Choice flick flack clutch

Finish with some stunning gold shoes like the KG Eleanor platform shoes

Summer television’s about to get a lot more glamorous!
