Straight out of Buffalo, New York, Jessica White has been setting off flashbulbs since the tender age of 16. Called “The Model of Her Generation” by Tyra Banks, White has donned the duds of everyone from Oscar de la Renta to Marc Jacobs to Victoria’s Secret. (Oh yeah, she’s worked on a little something called the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, too.) But White is more than just a beautiful body. She’s also a savvy businesswoman with an intellectual streak who writes editorials for King, Teen Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. So we asked her about life, love and panties. And included some visual aids, of course.
MADE MAN: What’s the one thing men need to know about women?
JESSICA WHITE: We really, truly want a man to love and appreciate us. We have so many different responsibilities—every woman is a superwoman! You keep a woman happy, your woman’s going to keep you happy. That’s how you keep a happy household.
MM: What do you like most about men?
JW: I love really intelligent men and men that are very creative, because I’m a creative woman. I love artists. I love a man with a sense of humor, because I like to laugh. But physically the thing I like most about men are arms. That’s the most powerful part of a man, because that’s what he’s going to hold you with. I think they’re very sexy. I get the chills when I see beautiful arms.
MM: What’s a dealbreaker?
JW: If you don’t know how to talk to me or you belittle me in public, that’s definitely a dealbreaker. Abuse in general is a dealbreaker. You need to contain men and teach them and the moment they get out of hand they’ll bite you. You keep them in check.
