AUSTRALIA‘S sexiest modeling export Jessica Gomes has stripped off for Madison magazine to show the curves which have made her a swimsuit superstar.
The 26-year-old, who has modeled for Sports Illustrated magazine and Victoria’s Secret, recently moved back to Australia and posed up sans clothing, and sans Photoshop, for the mag’s November issue, out tomorrow.
“I think a lot of girls can relate to me because I’m not super-thin and I’ve got boobs and a bum,” she said. “And I actually look pretty good.”
The Perth-born beauty said she wasn’t cut out for Paris catwalks but had found her niche in the industry.
“I was feeling a bit rejected because I didn’t do so well,” she said after attempting the cutthroat casting circuit at Paris Fashion Week in 2005.
“Sports Illustrated made me a household name in America and gave me a niche.
Before that happened I was confused about where I fitted.
“Gomes isn’t the first Aussie to bare all for a fashion magazine. Radio-host Bianca Dye, who posed naked for Madison’s November 2009 issue, lashed out at rival Marie Claire in January when the mag featured a nude and nearly flawless Jennifer Hawkins on its cover.
“I am in shock that they would say Jennifer Hawkins is a natural role model,” Dye said.
“She was born beautiful. She has not had to go through any stress to look like that.”
