Maybelline New York Signs New Supermodel Jessica White

At 16, Jessica was discovered in her hometown of Buffalo, NY and made the brave move to Paris. Within six months, she landed campaigns for Chloe and the Gap. Soon, Jessica was walking the runways for New York's top designers including Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Tommy Hilfiger. She also landed in the pages of Harper's Bazaar and Teen Vogue.

Jessica's big break to supermodel status came in 2003 when she was chosen for Sports Illustrated's famed Swimsuit issue. Jessica went on to model in the next four successive issues. This was a first in history for an African American woman. Jessica quickly made headlines and was deemed the new Iman by the international press.

In 2006, her supermodel title was solidified when she appeared on the catwalk of the famed Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. At 23, Jessica is poised to be an absolute star in the industry.

Jessica represents the essence of the Maybelline woman: she is sophisticated, worldly-wise, and involved. In her spare time Jessica works on a charitable foundation she founded called "Angel Wings" which provides under privileged children in her hometown of Buffalo an opportunity to have new experiences and follow their dreams just as she has. "We are thrilled to have Jessica White representing Maybelline NewYork," says Serena Giovi, Vice President of Marketing for Maybelline NewYork Garnier. "Her striking beauty and spark for life, makes her a perfect choice for our brand."

Jessica is elated to be under contract with Maybelline New York alongside one of her favorite models of all time Christy Turlington."Maybelline products are a part of every woman's life and I am so honored to represent the African American community for a brand I have grown up with," says Jessica.

Jessica will make her sensational television and print debut for Maybelline New York in February 2008.
