gemmaward_marieclairespainoct08.jpgThe last few months have been filled with speculation about what Gemma Ward is up to, since taking a lengthy break from the catwalks. In August, the Aussie model was forced to deny rumours that she was retiring from modelling to pursue an acting career, which left many of her fans saying 'phew!'

Then we heard that she had scooped a nomination for an Inside Film Award, for her role in The Black Balloon. The winners will be announced at next month's ceremony.

In the meantime, we are delighted to see Gemma back in the mags, this time on the cover of Marie Claire Spain (left). While it's not quite Vogue or Harper's, it is still a welcomed sight to see our second favourite Gemma (after our own editor-in-chief, of course) back on the scene.
