Jessica Gomes is Madison Magazine’s December 2011 Cover Girl and apparently is the ‘new face’ of Australia the headline declares in the Party Season issue.Â Inside they talk about Jessica’s ‘meteoric rise’ to the ranks of top model in the past 12 months although she’s been slogging it out overseas for the past six years (she moved to New York when she was 20) and is well known in the US (Sports Illustrated bikini model) and Korea but not so much here, she highlights an issue I’ve never really noticed here to be honest:
“I finally feel we are becoming more diverse in our choice of models in Australia.”
But she’s made in-roads to bringing about change to being seen as something other than just a bikini model, she was on Korea’s Dancing with the Stars, she was Vogue’s Fashion Night Out Ambassador and she’s now the face of Mambo and has a swimwear collaboration coming out with them. With a move to LA shortly we are sure to see Jessica up the ante in some new things to come!
