Ladies and gentleman, we introduce you to next generation of Black supermodels, Sport Illustrated swimsuit cutie, Jessica White.
Whether gracing the runways for New York’s top designers including Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger or being dubbed by Tyra Banks, “the model of her generation,” White continues to make history on the catwalk.
Last year, White made history by becoming the only Black model to ever have two make-up contracts in her career when she signed with Mabyelline.
In addition, she has done pictorials for Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, King and covers shots for Surface and Trace magazines. In 2003, White was chosen for a coveted shoot in Sports Illustrated’s famed Swimsuit Issue. She was also featured in the 2004, 2005 and 2007 issues. In 2005, she became the first African-American model to be featured in three consecutive editions of the annual feature.
You may have also seen White in music videos with John Legend and Jay-Z. Whether you have or not, you can always enjoy seeing her here!
