FOR the first time, model Kris Smith will not be show­ing off his body on the cat­walk for Myer.

The English­man said there was a com­fort not hav­ing to model shirt­less dur­ing the launch of Myer’s spring/sum­mer col­lec­tion in Syd­ney tonight.

“I am fully clothed, which is a nice re­lief,” he said. “It is a big change for me. It is pretty nerve-rack­ing walk­ing in front of all of those peo­ple just in a pair of shorts.”

Smith told Con­fi­den­tial yesterday that the or­gan­is­ers had been keep­ing the mod­els in the dark about the fi­nal de­tails of the launch.

“None of us know a sin­gle thing,” he said. “I re­ally have no idea what the theme is.”

Smith said he al­ways got ner­vous be­fore hit­ting the run­way, but that hav­ing his vo­cal mates in the crowd helped him re­lax.
