MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … a swim in the ocean.. and it’s free!
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … drink lots of water, get lots of sleep and don’t smoke!
In 1999, Australian born model Megan Gale was booked for a TV commercial for Italian telecommunications company Omnitel, now known as Vodafone, that turned her into a celebrity overnight. It was not only career changing, but life changing, with Megan obtaining a two year contract with the Italian phone giant, a two film deal, a cosmetics contract, offers to walk in Milan Fashion Week and multiple other job opportunities. This work took Megan around the globe to countries such as Spain, France, South Africa, Canada, Greece, Brazil, Argentina and the United States to name a few.
The Australian media soon realised what the Italians saw in Megan and have acknowledged her wide appeal with various covers and feature stories in Marie Claire, Australian Vogue, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Australian Style, Black & White, Cosmopolitan, Good Health, In Style, Ocean Drive, Harper’s Bazaar, Madison Magazine, Men’s Style, Australian GQ and numerous weekly publications, in addition to her Italian GQ, Italian Vogue and Italian Maxim editorials. Megan would later receive offers to work extensively in television, hosting TV shows Bodyworks, What a Year and Getaway on the Channel Nine network.
The fashion industry soon followed suit. She was asked to star in the David Jones Spring Summer 2001 Launch and be their spokesperson for that season. The show was a huge success for the department store and they promptly signed Megan as the ‘face’ of their company. She became their Brand Ambassador, a role that continues to this day and is the longest held fashion contract in Australia.
After being approached by Seafolly Australia, Megan set herself the goal of creating a swimwear range predominantly aimed at women in their 30s and 40s that was sophisticated, sexy, chic and completely wearable. Isola by Megan Gale was born. The range, made up entirely of separates, also consists of resort apparel pieces and many specialty fit DD cup styles.
With Isola by Megan Gale going strong, Megan now continues to spread her time between working on her upcoming Collection, her Brand Ambassador role with David Jones, her appointment as National Ambassador for The Australian Red Cross, occasionally working in radio and of course pursuing her love of acting.
