WHERE Megan goes, Jen will follow.. all the way to America. Supermodel Megan Gale's bound for a US acting career, and now her model rival is heading for New York too.

But Jennifer Hawkins has no intention at this stage of following Gale onto the big screen.

"Megan will be great as Wonder Woman,'' says Hawkins who, in her role as Myer ambassador, is leading a team of Australian designers keen to break into the New York scene.

"It's fantastic for her, but I'm only 24 so I haven't really thought too much about the acting path.

"If I do choose to do something else, I want to be prepared, to study the craft and not just suddenly say: 'I'm an actor.'''

Hawkins will catch up with billionaire Donald Trump, who made her when she won his Miss Universe competition in 2004.

She will kick-start the competitive fashion season and appear at a drinks party at New York's chic Gramercy hotel for a swag of Myer-stocked designers including Jayson Brunsdon, Camilla & Marc, Leona Edmiston, Josh Goot, Donna Karan and Rebecca Taylor.

She won't be taking to the runway, but will be sitting in the front row at Jayson Brunsdon's show next Thursday night.

Celebrities including host Carson Kressley and Elle Macpherson will join the party.Her retail rival and David Jones 'face' Megan Gale is quitting the runway for movies and there is speculation she will be replaced by Miranda Kerr.

That would be fine by Hawkins.

"What she has done with Victoria's Secret is fabulous and let's face it, whoever is chosen to replace Megan, I just hope she's nice,'' she said.

"I don't mind who it is as it really doesn't affect me and my Myer role at all.''

Hawkins is determined to run her own life and over the last year has developed a confidence not often seen in a 24-year old.

"I have fun. I run my life that I love, I have a great boyfriend, family and friends and couldn't wish for anything more at the moment.''

And any more rumours about wedding plans to long-term boyfriend, Jake Wall: "Not all all,'' she says emphatically.

"We are happy as we are and as for wedding plans, I'm only 24 for goodness sake!''

When Hawkins returns to Sydney she will host the autumn/winter launch on February 27 in Sydney before heading to Melbourne for the Myer Fashion Festival.

AN airline which once celebrated its birthday with a mass circumcision for 1500 kids and boasts about being Jennifer Hawkins' one-time carrier is joining Australia's budget air wars – and it promises to give high prices the chop.

Indonesian budget carrier Lion Air confirmed it would make its international debut by picking up a 49 per cent stake in an unnamed Aussie firm. It aims to get six new Boeing 737-900ERs into the air this year - more than Tiger Airways' start-up fleet here.

The airline is also setting up a subsidiary in Thailand.

"The move would provide a further influx in capacity to already highly competitive domestic markets in Australia and Thailand. The travelling public would be the main winners from further downward pressure on fares, if Lion Air is successful in launching operations in both countries", Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation spokesman Derek Sadubin said.

Lion Air president Rusdi Kirana reportedly said it was the Australian firm which came to Lion and made a bid after learning of the carrier's expansion plans.

"The Australian firm and Lion have agreed on a merger with Lion controlling a 49 per cent stake but entitled the majority rights in the management," he said.

Lion Air was the official airline for Hawkins when she visited Indonesia as Miss Universe in 2004. Its website also reveals it held a mass circumcision for Jakarta kids that same year to celebrate its third birthday.
