RE­BEKAH DEVLIN OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Monday -

IT’S A good thing they got a Brit to host this . . . it’s al­ways bet­ter to have a lo­cal. What? Elle Macpher­son is Aus­tralian? No way. She talks proper English, all posh and that.

Yep, it seems Elle’s Bri­tishi­sa­tion is fi­nally com­plete with this host­ing gig — there’s not even a hint of an Aussie twang about her.

Un­for­tu­nately,

Elle

lacks the per­son­al­ity of Sarah Murdoch or Tyra Banks. Both have a rap­port with the model wannabes and they’re gen­uinely funny. Elle is, well, kind of beige . . . she blends in. I never thought that was pos­si­ble, look­ing the way she does.

I will say, though, that the Bri­tish se­ries is much more mul­ti­cul­tural than the Aussie and US ver­sions, and aren’t some of the names out there — Har­leen, Delita, Ka­dian.

One girl walks the run­way like a mon­key, arms flail­ing, and an­other poor soul stacks it amid much gig­gling from the nasty, nasty girls.

Amba says she could be ‘‘ prop­erly win­ning ma­te­rial’’. Huh?

Han­nah has an ‘‘ ir­ra­tional fear of my toes touch­ing to­gether’’. Ap­par­ently she has trained them to sit apart, but it does beg the ques­tion how the heck are they gonna be

Posh: Elle Macpher­son
