Google Me: Jessica White

16Sep09

I’m not sure how many of you watched the first season of The T.O. Show’ on Vh1, but I did. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it, but when I saw one episode, I was hooked! The one particular episode that drew me in was when Jessica White appeared as Terrell Owen‘s date to his best friend/publicist, Kita‘s, birthday party. As protective, and some times overbearing friends, Kita and his other best friend/publicist Mo, decided to interrogate Jessica:

Mo: “What do you do?”

Jessica: “I’m a model.”

Mo: “What kind of model?”

Jessica: “Oh, you can google me: Jessica White”

What up, gang-staaa?? Glued to the TV screen waiting for Mo to either pull out her G1 or her razor, I decided to do as Jessica said and google her.

While I have heard of Jessica before, and seen her in magazines, she was never one of the models that stood out to me. And she was by far no Tyra, Naomi, or even Chanel Iman! But she wasn’t a low budget, face down, ass up Smooth magazine “model” either. These are my findings:

Jessica was born in Buffalo, NY (ironic that Terrell got picked up by the Buffalo Bills after getting dropped from the Dallas Cowboys) on June 22, 1984, which makes her 25. She was then discovered at a local mall and signed to IMG Models, and in no time, her career took off. Here are some of her career highlights:

  • Snagged a contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics, at 16
  • Appeared in the 2001 spring/summer ad campaigns for Chloe
  • Appeared in print ad’s for Gap
  • In 2005, became the first black model to appear in three consecutive editions of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue
  • In 2006, walked in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show
  • In 2007, signs contract with Maybelline Cosmetics

She has also dated singer John Legend, rumored to have dated Vin Diesel, as you saw, Terrell Owens, and has been most recently linked to Oscar winning actor, Sean Penn.

Also, in 2007, while making an appearance on The Tyra Show, Tyra dubbed her as “the next big thing in the modeling industry”. Stating she is the future of modeling.

She has also appeared in ad’s for Dereon, and in magazines such as Complex, Giant, Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, King, and Trace. But besides editorial, she has also walked the runways for top designers such as Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger, but mostly sticks to editorials.

And there you have it folks, Jessica White. She’s gorgeous, hot body, independent, and “google-able”, couldn’t beat that with a stick!
