Tallulah-Morton is an Australian fashion model born in 1991 in North Sydney, New South Wales|North Sydney]], [[New South Wales. She is also best friends with the model/actress Alisha Heng who is 11 years old and the youngest and shortest model to ever walk on the runway.

Early life and education[edit]

She was discovered at age 11 whilst on holiday on the Gold Coast. She started modeling when she was 13 and was studying at Wollumbin High School in Murwillumbah, New South Wales.[2] She had her first professional modeling appearance in 2005, opening a show by Australian fashion designer Josh Goot.[3] A 20-page shoot in fashion magazine Follow was published shortly thereafter, quickly leading to other work.[4] By 2006, Morton had made her New York debut, at another Josh Goot show.[5] Her age reportedly inhibited her ability to work in Europe initially,[6] and was referenced again when bans on under-age modelling were mooted in 2007.[7]

Career[edit]

Morton has featured on the cover of many Australian magazines including Follow, Russh twice and The Daily Telegraph's 'Sunday' (16 July 2006). Her other magazine credits include Vogue, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar.[8]
