Jessica Thomas, the redhead sweetheart of Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 9, sashayed her way down the runway for the David Jones Spring 2015 fashion launch last night, August 5.
Despite not taking out the show’s title, Jess has recently signed to IMG Models alongside winner Brittany Beattie and is already looking very much at home on the catwalk.
Jessica probably felt the pressure of being part of such a large-scale show, but she was in great company with David Jones Ambassador Jessica Gomes and fellow ANTM alumni Montana Cox walking the same runway. International supermodel and Bad Blood vixen Gigi Hadid was also sitting front row for Guess.
We’re definitely not shocked to see Jessica excelling in her modelling career, especially after she proved herself to be a fierce competitor on ANTM.
Her game-changing dye job quickly made her the one-to-beat, and allowed her confidence to grow stronger each week until she eventually made her way into the top four.
Fourth place or not, we think Jessica definitely has what it takes to “be on top”.
