Jessica Kahawaty

Born to Lebanese parents in 1988 in Sydney, Australia, Jessica Kahawaty - who is fluent in Arabic, English and French - started modelling at 14, and went on to bag the Miss World Australia title in 2012. But 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.

Jessica has appeared in major modelling campaigns, including Maybelline cosmetics in India, Lexus in Australia and Pepsi in Japan. She has also 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 MTV Lebanon, Channel 7 Australia, Sky News Arabia and FTV. We're glad she's finally made her home in Dubai!
