'Then you did not know the fab future you where given,' another fan remarked.
Indeed, life has certainly changed for Elle over the years thanks to her incredible success in the modelling, business and TV presenting arenas.
Earlier this week, the supermodel flaunted her expensive taste by revealing that she wanted to own David Hockney's painting A Bigger Splash for Christmas.

Fans immediately showered Elle with comments complimenting her aesthetic tastes, with one writing: 'Yes, on mine too!'
However, it seems unlikely that artwork's current owner- the Tate gallery in London- would be keen to part with the piece any time soon.
While the sale price of Elle's favorite painting is unknown, a similar Hockney painting named The Splash sold for £2.9 million at Sotheby's in 2006.
