Jessica Gomes is one of Australia’s most successful international exports with an extensive career in modelling and, most recently in Hollywood, where she is based. The Australian beauty has cemented herself as one of the world’s most sort after faces, appearing in campaigns, editorials, television and film work across Australia, Asia, Europe and the USA.
A native Perth, AU, Jessica broke fashion ground, surpassing all models of Asian heritage (her mother is Chinese and her father is Portuguese) when she appeared in the renowned Sports Illustrated ‘Swimsuit Issue’. Gomes continued to do so for every year from 2008 to 2015, more than any other Australian model to date.
Gomes has appeared on Australian covers of InStyle, Harpers Bazaar, Women’s Health and Men’s Style magazines as well as featured in main editorial in Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, In Style, Teen Vogue, GQ and Glamour internationally.
Jessica is currently in her fourteenth season as Ambassador for Australian retail giant David Jones and her fourth season as swimwear brand ambassador for Jets. In May 2018, Jessica launched her own swimwear collection for Jets aptly titled ‘Jessica Gomes for Jets Swimwear.’
In 2016, Gomes added entrepreneur and CEO to her resume, launching her own skincare range, Equal Beauty. With much success, the brand is currently stocked at Violet Grey in the US and David Jones in Australia with plans to expand into Asia at the beginning of 2019.
Jess has also enjoyed much success through South Korea in previous roles as a spokesperson for Korean conglomerates LG Electronics and Hyundai and debuted in her own reality TV show “I am Jessica Gomes”. In between modelling and running Equal Beauty, Gomes is also a budding actress, appearing in 2014’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” starring alongside Bruce Willis in the action film “One Upon A Time In Venice,” co-starred in 2017 comedy “Father Figures” alongside Owen Wilson, and in 2019, will be co-starring in the Netflix family drama “Tigertail” alongside John Cho and Alan Yang.
Gomes currently resides between Los Angeles and Sydney.
