Ambassador, The PeaceJam Foundation

Model | Celebrity | Activist

Ambassador for The PeaceJam Foundation

It was Steven Meisel who gave Jessica her big break when he shot her for two Italian Vogue covers for the coveted September issue in 2003. Since then, she regularly appears on the cover of many top fashion magazines. In 2007 Forbes listed Jessica as one of the 15 top-earning supermodels in the world. She has had the opportunity to work with such noted photographers as Irving Penn, Mario Testino, and Peter Lindbergh, and can currently be seen hosting Yahoo’s fashion show The Thread.

Transitioning from model, to celebrity, to activist Jessica has partnered with The PeaceJam Foundation, Many Hopes, and Adopt Together to inspire youth worldwide, to support abandoned girls in costal Kenya, and to connect foster children with loving families.
