Elle Macpherson returned to the catwalk at the PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival on Monday.

The Australian model took to the catwalk for the first time in almost 14 years, opening the event at the Royal Exhibition Building.

The 59-year-old, who turns 60 this month, proved she’s still The Body as she strutted down the catwalk in a Viktoria + Woods ensemble.

The caramel-hued ensemble included two thick wool sweaters, one around her neck, as well as brown satin pants.

She added a loose brown coat on top and called for a touch of drama as she removed her sunglasses.
