Sweet Carolyn: Murphy Shines on the Cover of Vogue Australia

Carolyn Murphy in Vogue Australia January 2013

Winter may be settling in across the United States, but Summer's just starting to heat up in the land down under — thanks in part to Carolyn Murphy's January cover of Vogue Australia.

Regan Cameron photographed the blond bombshell for the cover and an editorial in the magazine called "Sweet Carolyn." Vogue Australia's editor in chief said picking Murphy for the cover was a no-brainer. "She's so picture perfect that she's often cast as a mannequin," McCann said, "but as a laid-back keen surfer, she's equally at ease in these luxe, hippie looks."

Elsewhere in the issue, there are interviews with Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga and an essay by Erin Brockovich. For now, a look at the cover and a few images from Murphy's shoot here in the gallery.
