Well, well, well. All that speculation about Myf Shepherd being on hold for Prada was on the money. There she is in not only last night's Prada show shots from Milan - but on page one of the very high profile style.com website today. No Olivia O'Driscoll unfortunately, which is a blow to NZ, but that's a fantastic get for Shepherd. Snubbed, as frockwriter previously reported, by the ANTM producers for a slot on this year's show, Shepherd really is Australia's next top model.

And Prada might not be the end of it.
Shepherd's other Milan shows to date include Missoni, Jil Sander and Gianfranco Ferre. According to her Sydney agent Kathy Ward moreover, the 17 year-old year 12 student from Brisbane is now also confirmed for the Gucci and Fendi shows.

This places Shepherd in the elite runway league - straight off the bat.
Shepherd's spectacular international runway debut season has embraced over one dozen top New York shows, including both Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs and London shows including Luella Bartley and Issa.
"You know what is really extraordinary? She has been modelling since February" noted Ward. "Catherine McNeil had been modelling since she was 13. Abbey Lee Kershaw had been modelling since she was 15 [ie when McNeil and Kershaw made their international runway debuts in Feb 07 and Feb 08 respectively]. Myf literally has just started modelling and to have such prominent bookings is really very unusual".
Shepherd and Kershaw appear to be the only Chic Management girls still standing on the European runways.
Ward reports that Catherine McNeil is unwell and will miss Milan and most likely Paris. Sarah Stephens will also miss Milan and Paris and is staying is London where she is "on hold for some big campaigns".
