The sisters were well known in the Sydney scene, with Elle finding fame as a supermodel, her high-profile relationships and acting guest roles on hit shows like Friends.
As for sister Mimi, she was making waves thanks to her career in the whale-watching and boating industry.
She had her own whale-watching business and was a successful director of multiple companies. By the late '90s she had even been featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan as "one of the 30 most successful Australian businesswomen under the age of 30".
Then in 1999, it reached a peak when Mimi became the face of Foster's beer. And from then on, she dominated the celebrity scene.
