Model behaviour?

Jessica Hart admits she’s no angel

Jessica Hart may be a Victoria’s Secret Angel but, in real life, she admits, she’s far from the epitome of virtuosity.

‘I have too many bad habits but swearing is probably the worst,’ she says. ‘I must say f**k every day.’


Born in Sydney and now living in New York, Hart is as known for her laid-back rock-chic style as much as her killer body. Her gap-toothed smile (definite Bridget Bardot vibe) and bronzed skin have landed her campaigns with Bobbi Brown, Cue, Esprit, Guess, Portmans, Target and Zimmermann and, most recently, Danish jeans label ONLY.


‘They have so many cute things, especially all their denim pieces,’ she says of working with the brand. ‘They gave me one of their white tees on the last shoot and I’ve literally worn it to death.’

We take a quick-fire tour inside the life and mind of a Hart who wears her heart very much on her well-worn sleeve…

What’s been your favourite modelling job?

‘I love travelling and seeing the world, so all the jobs that give me the opportunity to go to fun locations are my most memorable.’


Which life mantra do you live by?

‘Live life to the fullest, like every day is your last and be happy about the mistakes you’ve made.’

If you could name a cocktail after yourself, what would you call it?

‘The Panic Attack.’

What was your most romantic Valentine’s Day?

‘I don’t like celebrating Valentine’s Day. If you’re going to be romantic do it any day. It means more that way anyway.’

When did you last cry?

‘Last night watching Grey’s Anatomy. It’s my favourite show.’

Any party tricks?

‘I have double-jointed hips so I can pop them in and out – not at the same time though!’
