Models Profiled! | A Gorgeous Abercrombie Rose Still Keeping in Bloom...

Jessica Perez | Abercrombie & Fitch Christmas 2006 | Photography by Bruce Weber
Jessica Perez is one of my most favorite Abercrombie & Fitch models that have ever been! Her beauty completely hypnotized me when I first laid eyes on her during Christmas 2006. The photography featuring her in the campaign is among the most iconic Abercrombie, period. There is such a strong sense of sensuality and ideal beauty that radiates from the imagery, and Bruce Weber did an amazing job at capturing the allure of her gracious form...and her eyes...breathtaking. Honestly, over the years, I've thought about her modeling constantly. She has that much effect. A&F always features beautiful female models, but Jessica Perez is a rare rose among them that flowers out above the rest. Seriously, she is one of the most gorgeous models Abercrombie & Fitch has ever featured.

So then imagine my joy when when, while surfing for news, I came across an article covering her active life today. The title: Model Perez keeps herself swimsuit-ready all year...Oh yeah! And why "swimsuit-ready"? It just so happens that my adorable Jessica has recently been announced as the winner of Sports Illustrated 2011 model search for the Sports Illustrated 2012 swimsuit edition!!! I love her! Oh, and did I mention she beat out seven other hotties for the top prize!...Yes, it is a very revealing job to say the least. But she is comfortable with the skimpy attire (even when the tops come off) - she is professional and takes her job seriously. Off the set, she's a "modest" girl - shorts and halter tops on the beach - and isn't ostentatious about her sensual body...

Perez Perfection! (image source)
Well, the New Time article gives us an idea of how Jessica keeps herself to near perfection. The Latina former Abercrombie beauty loves to keep it clean and simple when it comes to athletics fashion. No molded cups in her sports bra (racer-back), only wears tank tops (no short sleeve tees), and the fabrics have to draw the sweat from the skin. She also prefers light sneakers (so the article continues) and replaces them at six-months intervals....What could be more sexier than a particular(ly hot) woman on swift feet!

Born in 1987, Jessica Perez is the daughter of a Costa Rican father and American mother. She was born in Costa Rica, for that matter, and later lived in Honduras and Ecuador on into her adolescence. (During Christmas 2006, A&F New Faces said she was Puerto Rico...what?) Her modeling in front of the lens of renown fashion photographer Bruce Weber for Abercrombie & Fitch Christmas 2006 was a great help in her modeling career. (Many, many models have started their careers at A&F and have gone on to great things: Karlie Kloss for example...). Ms. gorgeous Perez went on to model for many other brands soon afterwards, but her most notable (and jaw-dropping) jig has been as a Victoria's Secret model! If she was amazing in Abercrombie & Fitch, then she is just mesmerizing in Victoria's Secret! Just take a look at her here!

Well, after looking at her, you would expect her to be like the stereotypical perfect model always in battle with food. Guess what? Jessica loves candy! And she even starts "dreaming of burgers" when she gets rigorous for an upcoming "bikini job" photoshoot. I mean, the girl is human! She keeps it healthy always, however, keeping it cool and motivated. Yoga is her absolute favorite exercise - what's not hot about yoga, right!?! - and her cardio fave is running. But she maintains that it is important to stay to your routine - it should be as natural as brushing your teeth - and that you should never strive off because its kind of hard to get back on track. She is compeletely right! I myself enjoy morning runs, but layed it off during the winter time. Now, I'm having a difficult time waking up early for them. I mean, after a killer party out with the friends, who has the energy left for sunrise! Great advice from Jessica that we must all adhere to!

For more amazing photography of her, check out her profile on the Fashion Model Directory here. Oh and do not forget to check out her breathtaking photos here at COED magazine!... The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition 2012 is gonna be sweltering hot my FIERCE friends!!! Jessica Perez, you'll always be our favorite girl - an Abercrombie goddess!
