Las Vegas, NV (CNS) – The saying, “It’s not where you are but who you’re with that really matters” applies to Jessica White’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue experience.
“I had crappy weather at all of my shoots, but I’d have to say the Grenadines [was my favorite location]. Even though it was cold and rainy, shooting with Raphael Mazzucco was amazing,” White said. “He is the best photographer, and I want to work with him again. If you have a great crew, it doesn’t really matter about the location.”
White began in the modeling industry when she was just 14 years old. She has been in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue six times now – 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and this year.
“I am a veteran. All the other girls are rookies,” White told CNS. “Marisa Miller and all my friends, they’re not here anymore. I feel so old.”
After speaking with CNS, she joined the rest of the models who came out for the red carpet, including Hilary Rohda, Daniella Sarahyba, Anne V and Bar Refaeli, inside LAX nightclub for the issue’s kickoff party.
