Jessica is a new full-time model from Brighton. She is self-confessed hippy who loves to promote peace and self-acceptance. Here she shares her individual style, most coveted lingerie and love of gemstones...
Hi Jessica, tell me about yourself:
Hi, I'm 18yrs old and represented by Storm Models. I love acting, psychology and yoga. I studied psychology at college. I've always loved acting so am so happy to be able to do acting auditions through Storm. I've have been full time modelling since July, it’s all very exciting its going really well. I’m already working with clients such as ASOS, New Look etc. I was scouted by Storm at a festival when I was 14yrs old which was the most surreal experience as I'd never thought about modelling.
How would you describe your style?
I am a definite hippy! I love big patterned harem pants, loads of wooden jewellery and gemstone rings. I like to wear Free People clothing as it is so well made and definitely reflects my style - although I get most of my clothes from either Camden Market or the Laines in Brighton. I love jewellery too, my favourite ring is a silver band with a Moldovite stone set in it from Two Feathers in Brighton. I like gemstones because of all the different meanings they can have - Moldovite especially. I also make my own jewellery and I've just got the hang of making earrings.
Would you say your lingerie fits into you that style or do you like to express yourself differently or experiment underneath?
It's hard to find lingerie which really matches my general style so usually I just go for things that are simple, lacy and make me feel good. I generally shop for underwear in Urban Outfitters and H&M and have got my eye on a set from "For Love and Lemons" too!!
What’s your favourite set of lingerie and why?
My favourite set is one I bought really recently from H&M, I love it because it's perfect for me in the way that it's comfortable and has really lovely back detail.
How would you describe you body image?
I have always been body confident. I think it's important to look after your health; I love yoga, swimming.
Are there any words of wisdom you like to live your life by?
My mum always told me to trust your instincts so I definitely live by that!
