Charlotte Dawson (8 April 1966 – 22 February 2014) was a New Zealand-Australian television presenter, model and activist. She was best known as a host on The Contender Australia and as a judge on Australia's Next Top Model.[1]

She was born in Auckland, New Zealand. At age sixteen, she worked as a model in Europe and with Ford Models, New York in the United States. In 1999, she married Olympic swimmer Scott Miller. The couple divorced in 2000.[2]

Dawson committed suicide by hanging[3] on the morning of 22 February 2014 at her home in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, New South Wales. She was 47 years old. Police said they were called to the home at 11:18 a.m. and that there were no suspicious circumstances to the death. She had a long history of depression. She tried to commit suicide in August 2012, after a much publicised battle with Twitter trolls.[1][2]

Prime Minister of New Zealand John Key said he was "shocked" and "saddened" by her death.[4]
