FNM Interview: Australian Supermodel Nicole Trunfio on Her Elle Australia Cover, Getting Discovered

Australian supermodel Nicole Trunfio reveals the story behind the famous Elle cover with son Zion, as well as the story of how she really got discovered.


Australian supermodel Nicole Trunfio has been lighting up magazine covers for more than a decade, but it's one of her newest that she's most proud of.

In a photoshoot for June's issue of Elle Australia, Trunfio was merely supposed to be cradling her infant son Zion. But instead of ducking away to feed him, she and her photographer captured the beautiful motherly moment for the mag's cover. 

In addition to telling us about her impromptu Elle cover shot, Trunfio also filled us in on how she became a model in the first place — and it's kind of a funny story.
