Jessica Hart (born 26 March 1986) is an Australian model who appeared in the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She was born in Sydney, Australia.[1] She was discovered in Melbourne and has appeared on the cover of Australian Vogue.[3]

Early life and discovery

Hart attended Sophia Mundi Steiner School in Collingwood, Victoria until she was noticed at the age of 15 at a local shopping centre.[4][5] Another story of her rise to fame has her encouraged by an aunt to enter a modeling competition hosted by Dolly Magazine in 2000.[1][3] She won the competition with her mother, Rae, and sister, Ashley, as witnesses at Crown Casino.[6] She is known for a gap-tooth smile.[7]


Hart moved to New York City to pursue a career in modeling and has modelled for Guess, Triumph and Esprit.[4] Hart shot her Swimsuit Issue photos in Mexico in November 2008.[8]

In 2008, she considered a role in an Entourage-like drama alongside Alyssa Sutherland.[9] In May 2009, Australian media reported that Hart had signed on to appear in advertising for Victoria's Secret.[10][11] With Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova and Adriana Lima all pregnant in the fall of 2009, Hart appeared extensively in the season's Victoria's Secret catalogs.[12]

She is represented by Chadwick Models.[5]

Hart was also in a few episodes of MTV's The City during its first season, in which she is shown dating Tamarama band member Nicolas Potts, her long-term boyfriend.[13]

In 2010, Hart walked in the Spring/Summer 2011 shows for Gottex Swimwear, PPQ, Louise Gray, Emilio de la Moreno, Osman, Sass & Bide, Julien MacDonald, Matthew Williamson, Antonio Berardi, Christopher Kane, David Koma, Giles Deacon, Charlie Le Mindu and Jon. In 2012 she became the face of the new Scotch And Soda line Été Blanc for Maison Scotch.

In early 2012, Jessica had a couple of minor accidents - breaking her ankle and then in a separate incident, cutting her foot on glass at a wedding, which led to nerve damage in her foot. This led to Jessica being out of action from the catwalk for a few months.[14]

Hart walked the runway in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2012 and 2013.[15][16]

Personal life

Hart and her then-boyfriend, Tamarama band member and fellow Australian Nicolas Potts, purchased a $1-million one-bedroom property in Manhattan's Battery Park during the summer of 2008. Hart also purchased her mother, Rae, a Holden car for her birthday.[17] Hart and Potts mutually ended their long-term relationship in 2010. As of December 2013, Hart was dating Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos III.[18]
