From 1970 to 2016, Aussie girls spent countless hours flicking through the pages of Dolly Magazine. From celebrity gossip to beauty tips and the infamous sealed section, otherwise known as ‘Dolly Doctor’.

But, do you remember the magazine’s annual model search and subsequent cover model?

Hear Shannan talk about her experience here:

You might remember a 13-year-old girl from Gunnedah winning the 1997 competition, and eventually becoming one of the country’s most recognisable faces? Yes, we’re obviously talking about Miranda Kerr.

Three years prior to Miranda’s win, a 14-year-old from the Gold Coast took the title. Who was it, you ask? Lo and behold, it was one of our listeners – Shannan Camilleri.

How lucky!
