Runway Face-Off: Miranda Kerr Versus Jessica Gomes
A change is as good as a holiday, huh? David Jones certainly believes in shaking things up, announcing today after some speculation, to not renew Miranda Kerr's $1 million dollar contract as their fashion ambassador. After five years of twice yearly fashion shows, large scale TV and print advertising campaigns and numerous in-store events all fronted by Miranda, we have to admit we're happy to hear that there'll be a fresh Australian face fronting the department store. Half-Singaporean half-Portuguese, Perth-born beauty Jessica Gomes is set to step into Mrs Bloom's supermodel shoes, bringing with her a new, more ethnically diverse look and more womanly, Sports Illustrated-approved physique. Jessica has a huge fan base in South Korea, starring in her own reality show called I Am Jessica Gomes in 2009 and appearing on Dancing with the Stars South Korea the following year. In tribute — both to Miranda's time at David Jones and to herald in Jessica's new reign — we've pitted their best runway looks from the past two DJ runway seasons against each other. Old and new, but both so beautiful. Ready to compare and contrast?
