Miss World Australia
Born to Lebanese parents in 1988 in Sydney, Australia, Jessica Kahawaty - who is fluent in Arabic, English and French - started modelling at 14 and has a bachelor's degree in Law and Business Finance from Sydney's University of Technology. The beautiful Jessica bagged the Miss World Australia title in 2012. And that's not all: out of 116 international contestants, Jessica went on to win the second runner-up crown at the Miss World pageant in the same year.
Apart from major modelling campaigns - Maybelline cosmetics in India, Lexus in Australia and Pepsi in Japan - Jessica has appeared on the covers of international publications including L'Officiel Middle East, Spécial and Anoujoum and has been interviewed by Marie Claire Australia and German magazines GALA and Bespoke. She has worked with some of the world’s best fashion designers: Escada, Georges Chakra, Dorian Ho, Jimmy Choo and Akira have had her walk the runway. Quite the globetrotter, Jessica has made appearances at fashion shows in Shanghai, Tokyo, Beirut, Sydney, Kyoto and even Ordos (Mongolia) and has been interviewed on Hadith el balad (Talk Of The Town) on MTV International, Sunrise (Channel 7 Australia), Sky News Arabia and FTV. We're glad she's finally made her home in Dubai!
