  • Brian

    She looks like a goddess

  • Very unidimensional girl…not excited about her



  • matsu

    A golden girl. She is born to be a star :D

  • Erika

    Not a fan.

  • N.N.

    I see a potential from her.

  • she has such a strong face, I’m surprised she’s only 19. she’s gorgeous though, very memorable.

  • Phoebe

    She’s a little too bland for me, but then again the bland girls usually do the best nowadays.

  • She looks so striking in the shot with the pink dip dyed hair.

  • layla


  • I’m sorry, I hate to be negative. She’d look gorgeous if she smiled. This sour-lemon look is all too prevalent. Elle MacPherson had a smile that melted icebergs, and she wasn’t just a one-minute wonder.

  • IMG?! What?! :O!! C’mon!!! -________-
    I usually believe fully in any girl if IMG is backing them but really? Her? I just don’t see it.

  • Eamon

    I get the feeling some of these negative commentators will be eating their words before too long.

  • jessica

    she is amazing! see big things for her future, brings to mind a girly version of Julia Nobis!!

  • miguel

    I try, but i can’t. I hope to be wrong.

  • Daan v

    you don’t just become Model of the Week
    + IMG would not put any effort in a girl if she’d not have any potential, because IMG is smart, they most likely have a great strategy in mind for this girl and I
    this girl
    is different.
    will cross my fingers for her <3

  • Sabrina Bella

    I love the picture with the cowboy hat and the first natural picture! She has some really good angles and some not so great ones that she just needs to learn how to work to her advantage. But I think she has potential, I really do. Good luck Jess!


    LOVE her face!!!!
    its almost perfect
    only if she has fuller lips then she ll be on of my favorites !

  • Yasmin

    In some pics I like her, in others not so much… The last picture is definitely the best one; but I need to see much more pics of her to be able to judge fairly…

  • sascha

    these EYEBROWS! omg, no joke, they’re gorgeous!!

  • N.N.

    there is a potential, just need to be more sharpened.

  • Once Upon A Time

  • jessica

    for anyone who doubted her based on her pics here, look at her recent photos from Sydney Fashion Week!

    she looks amazing and i see big things for her!!

  • The first image is absolutely wonderful. An unguarded, authentic, beautiful portrait. It reminds me of the work of Avedon.
