HART WITH GIT DOIN She has it all: An en­vi­able mod­el­ling ca­reer, bil­lion­aire boyfriend and her own beauty brand. But as we dis­cov­ered, there’s so much more to Jes­sica Hart and her piv­otal life mo­ments.

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

Imag­ine be­ing born as Jes­sica Hart, ge­net­i­cally blessed with a bikin­i­model-bod, ef­fort­less blonde beach­waves, a fa­cial bone struc­ture many of us would pay money for, and a sig­na­ture tooth gap that won over the mod­el­ling world. You might think that the en­vi­able life of travers­ing the globe, at­tend­ing shows and dat­ing one of the world’s rich­est men was handed to her on a sil­ver plat­ter. It would be too easy to hate her, but the thing is, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t. With her care­free, af­fa­ble charm, Jes­sica is at the peak of a glam­orous life. But what’s not so ob­vi­ous, is that it has taken years of hard work; far re­moved from her hum­ble be­gin­nings. Raised as a “lit­tle hip­pie kid” in Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia, she was scouted as a teen and landed her first cover shoot at 14. But she re­cently tearily re­vealed to the me­dia she and her sis­ter Ash­ley were born out of a “rocky mar­riage”, her mother leav­ing her fa­ther so Jes­sica “would al­ways have [Ash­ley]”. Launch­ing her mod­el­ling ca­reer in her late teens, land­ing cov­eted in­ter­na­tional ed­i­to­ri­als and snag­ging some of the big­gest clients, she now rubs shoul­ders with fash­ion’s largest names, sits in the front row, swats away mar­riage ru­mours with oil mag­nate Stavros Niar­chos, and has lev­elled up her ca­reer by launch­ing her own cos­met­ics line.
