#TBT ; I’M TAKING YOU BACK TO 2003 TODAY, JANUARY TO BE EXACT AND A SHOOT I WORKED ON FOR BRITISH VOGUE, WHICH TO THIS DAY IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES….. IT STARS LAS VEGAS BORN MODEL JESSICA MILLER.
Born in Las Vegas, Nevada on the 21st of February 1984, Jessica is an American fashion model who is well known for her statuesque body and gorgeous long hair. At a fairly young age she landed a two-year contract deal with Calvin Klein and consequently became an overnight modeling star. In 2003, she received the prestigious Model of the Year prize at the International Awards, beating models Carmen Kass and Kate Moss in the same year. Its been noted that Jessica has striking resemblance to Jane Birkin.
This shoot took place in England and I remember talking to Jessica about her childhood when we getting her ready on the morning.. It transpired that her Mum was a Vegas showgirl which I was fascinated by. Jessica is also a big heavy metal fan and a total rock chick at heart. I think both those facts about her allowed her to express herself freely in modelling and played a huge part in her success.
I worked with Jessica on numerous occasions after this shoot and whilst I haven’t seen her in a while, I know seeing her again will be like seeing her only the day before.
So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen I give you the fabulous, the one and only Jessica Miller, who incidentally is now married to Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.
