Yesterday, photographers made the most of the balmy Australian summer and snapped the model in a number of poses.

Work of art: Catherine changed into a blue and white striped bikini for another pose and showed off some of her 14 tattoos
She sits on a chair with one leg tucked under the other and stares seductively at the camera.

Chilling out: The model laxed back on this windowsill as she stared down the lens of the camera
She has appeared on numerous magazine covers including for Vogue, French Vogue and V.
Sheis often compared to fellow Aussie and Victoria”s Secret model Miranda Kerr, 28, and took over from the mother-of-one as the face of swimwear brand Seafolly.
The pair both won model competitions for Australian magazines when they where barely in their teens – causing controversy in the industry.
What”s so funny When the cameras weren”t rolling, the model was in fits of laughter with the crew
Catherine won Girlfriend”s model search in 2003 at the age of 14 while Miranda won Dolly magazine”s search at age 13 in 1997.
Bothwomen also went nude for the annual Pirelli calender last year along with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Daisy Lowe and Lily Cole.
Kathy Ward, of Chic Management – the pair”s Australian agency – expressed surprise over the shoot and behind-the-scenes shots of the women in the nude.
And last year, Catherine featured in the new campaign for underwear brand Bonds, following in the footsteps of Miranda.
