Welcome to our very first installment of Model of the Week. I've written a five question interview that I have conducted with several models to share with you. The questions are both fun and beauty-related and will always stay the same. I can't wait to hear what you think of this new feature!
Here's a little history on the gorgeous Jessica Stam. She was born in Kincardine, Ontario, Canada on April 23rd, 1983 and was discovered in a coffee shop on her way home from an amusement park.
You may recognize her from her countless magazine spreads, appearances in many fashion shows and ads for Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Atsuro Tayama, Cerruti Jeans, Valentino, Miu Miu, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Holt Renfrew and BCBG. Did you know that Marc Jacobs's highly coveted Stam Bag was inspired by her? She has just signed on to be the face of Armani and Bulgari.
Known for her amazing cat-like blue eyes and long lashes, Jessica also happens to be super sweet, approachable and down-to-earth.
To read her interview that was done backstage before the Luca Luca Show, and to see more runway pictures,

JS: Aquafor. I put on my lips and anywhere that looks or feels dry on my body.
BELLA: What is your guilty pleasure?

BELLA: What is your favorite drugstore product?
