Born in Perth, Western Australia, Megan Gale is part Maori and is the youngest of three children with two older brothers.
ModelingAfter winning a modeling competition in Perth at 18, Gale then moved to Sydney. After several years of modeling, Gale was cast to appear in a series of advertisements for the Italian telecommunications commercials, Omnitel (now Vodafone Italy); she appeared in the company's advertising from 1999 until 2006. She was also retained by the Australian Tourist Commission in 2003 as 'their face of Australia in Italy'.
Gale has modelled for Italian fashion houses such as Gianfranco Ferré, Genny and Gai Mattiolo and favours many Australian designers, such as Colette Dinnigan, Sass & Bide, and Alex Perry. Recently she was the fashion commentator for the Australian television awards, the Logies. She has been the face of the upmarket Australian department store David Jones since August 2001. Gale's appearances on the catwalk in the famous annual fashion parades are extremely popular and she has helped to raise David Jones' profile to the younger market and trendy fashion designers.
In January 2008, Gale announced her retirement from catwalk modelling after 15 years and strutted down the catwalk for the last time just weeks later at a David Jones winter collection launch in Sydney. Her final outfit was the Wonder Woman outfit she was to wear in the still-shelved film Justice League of America. She has since been replaced on the catwalk by Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr although she is still contracted to the store as Brand Ambassador until 2011.
