Australia's Next Top Model[edit]

Sanderson was criticized during the final weeks of the show in regard to her suffering from depression, which she admitted to during episode 5. Sanderson won a number of challenges, showing early favoritism from judge Marguerite Kramer (former Harper's Bazaar editor). Sanderson won the show and went on to model both in Australia and internationally, having been represented by Next Model Management in New York, Chic Management in Sydney, Beatrice Models in Milan, and Storm Models in London.


Internationally, she has shot for Macy's, Tchibo, Auchan, and the ASOS catalogue. She portrays the angel girlfriend in Lynx and Axe advertisements.

In Australia and New Zealand, her advertising and fashion campaigns include Jeans West, David Jones Limited, and Myer, while she has appeared in magazines like Dolly Magazine, Frankie Magazine, Cleo, Marie Claire, and FHM. Internationally, she has appeared on the covers of Escape Magazine (Hong Kong) and Silhouette (Italy), and in Elle, Maxim, Jack Magazine, and Grazia (UK).

Sanderson has walked in Australian Fashion Weeks, for leading Australian and New Zealand designers Lisa Ho, Alannah Hill, Trelise Cooper, David Jones Limited, and Myer.[1][2][3]
