By 1986, her popularity has increased sufficiently for Time magazine to run a cover entitled “The Big Elle”. The Australian government simultaneously offered her a post on the tourist commission as an unofficial ambassador.

Macpherson made her movie debut playing an artist's model in the 1994 film Sirens, which also starred Hugh Grant and Sam Neill. Macpherson gained 20 pounds for the part to more closely resemble the 1930s models of the day. She surprised fans and critics by appearing unabashedly in numerous nude scenes, earning her top billing for the film above more established actors (in fact, all the female characters in the movie appeared nude at least once in the film).
