Carolyn Murphy (born August 11, 1973)[4] is an American model and actress.[5]


In 1998, Murphy was named VH1/Vogue's Model of the Year.[6] She played Dubbie in Barry Levinson's film Liberty Heights.[7] She was one of the "Modern Muses" on the November 1999 millennium cover of American Vogue[8] and was chosen to represent Calvin Klein's perfume, Contradiction.[9] In 1998, during a photo shoot for Elle, the photographer noticed her resemblance to the actress Gene Tierney and dubbed her "The blonde Gene Tierney".[10]

Murphy has shot campaigns for Missoni, Versace and Tiffany & Co.[6] In 2005 she was featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.[11]

In July 2012, Murphy was hired to replace Angela Lindvall as host of Project Runway: All Stars on Lifetime, after Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dropped out for a film project.[12] In 2012, Murphy was ninth on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $3.5 million in one year.[13]

As of 2015, Murphy and boyfriend Lincoln Pilcher practice Transcendental Meditation.[14]
