Miss Jessica White

Miss Jessica White (born June 21, 1984 in Buffalo, New York) is an American model and occasionally also an actress. And she looks FANTASTIC in a bikini!

At the age of 13, Jessica White was scouted in her hometown of Buffalo, New York, and went to Personal Best modeling school at age sixteen. After modeling for one week, her first job was an editorial for American Vogue after meeting Anna Wintour. Later in Paris, she signed a contract with the IMG agency and over the next six months landed campaigns for CoverGirl, Chloé, Jean Paul Gaultier and Gap.

She was soon walking the runways for New York’s top designers, including Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger. Tyra Banks dubbed her "the model of her generation." In June 2007, Jessica White signed a contract with cosmetics company Maybelline, later that year, she walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

She basically rocketed to the top of the modeling industry within a few short years.

She has also done editorials for Harper's Bazaar, Teen Vogue, King and covers shots for Surface and Trace magazines. In 2003, White was chosen for a coveted shoot in Sports Illustrated's famed Swimsuit Issue. She was also featured in the 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 issues. In addition to working with world-class photographers she was the object/subject of several Joanne Gair body painting works in these editions.

White is currently represented by Brandsway Creative. Jessica White has appeared in music videos for Big & Rich, singer John Legend, rapper Jay-Z (Change Clothes), Robin Thicke (The Sweetest Love), and R&B singer Trey Songz (Neighbors Know My Name). In 2008 she appeared in The Young and the Restless.

Here are 4 shots of Jessica White in her bikini.

Five Funny Looking Bikinis

Things to avoid; Funny looking bikinis. Sure, you will get a laugh (and some of them are a tech marvel), but do you really want to be the face that gets that bikini all over the internet?

Plus try to avoid having an accident in your new bikini...

How to Make your own Bikini

SUSTAINABLE FASHION - One of the great things about bikinis is that they take very little fabric to make.

Which means they also make great targets for creating sustainable fashion using recycled clothing.

There is also no shortage of "make your own bikini" videos on YouTube, so you can basically pick and choose what method and style of bikini you want. Or just design your own. Its not that difficult.

You can even KNIT your own bikini!

If you already know how to knit then you will also know just how ridiculously easy it is to knit a scarf or socks. Knitting a bikini is just as easy.

So if you know how to sew or knit then why would you ever PAY for a bikini? It just makes more sense both economically and on a creative level to have fun designing and making your own.

Can't wait for Summer Bikinis!

Here is some fun photos of bikinis I found while anxiously waiting for the snow to melt...

Get outta the office, get into your bikini!


Hey (hey) you (you), get into a bikini
Who me?
Yes you, get into a bikini
Wooooooooooooooh. Wah! Yeah!

Who's that lady
Coming down the road
Who's that lady
Who's that woman
Walking through my door
What's the score
I'll be the sun
Shining on you
Hey Cinderella
Step in your shoe
I'll be your non-stop lover
Get it while you can
Your non-stop miracle
I'm your man

Get outta the office
Get into a bikini
Get outta the office
Get in the back seat baby
Get into a bikini
Beep beep, yeah
Get outta my mind
Get into my life
Oh I said hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into a bikini

Oh baby

Okay, I totally admit to ripping off Billy Ocean's song... but hey, it was all for a good cause... the cause of getting sun and wearing your bikini.

To get you started here is an old blog post I found about Toronto beaches. They're world class beaches. Seriously, and that is just in Toronto CANADA! Just imagine the really nice beaches if you live somewhere like Hawaii...

Nevertheless it does make you wonder... I mean Toronto people mostly work in offices. Toronto lawyers, Toronto website designers, Toronto bankers, Toronto accountants, Toronto mailroom clerks, Toronto IT staff... basically every boring office job you can think of... and right outside their stuffy offices are "world class beaches" just waiting to be used, waded in, sunbathed on... and half of the people in those offices are presumably women, right?

Although I admit some of them might be in the 40 to 65 range and shy about wearing a bikini, that should not discourage them from dieting in time for summer (ie. The Master Cleanse Detox Diet)... and not just dieting either. Don't forget exercise! Yoga, Weightlifting, Parkour and other healthy activities.

Lets take for example Canada's rather tubby Prime Minister... Stephen Harper. The guy lives at 24 Sussex in Ottawa. Guaranteed his fish belly white legs hasn't seen a beach in a long time... Just a sec, let me do a Google image search and see if my hunch is right.

Yup, the closest thing to Stephen Harper going to the beach is the Beaches of Normandy on Remembrance Day (you know, to remember the Canadian soldiers who died freeing France from the clutches of Nazism during WWII). And he's wearing a suit.

Anyway my point, my original point, was that bikini / swimsuit wearing should not be limited to people stuck in Toronto offices. EVERYONE! From the Prime Minister in Ottawa to the lowly blue collar installer of Ottawa windows should get out there, get some sun... and burn, baby burn!




So yeah, don't forget the sun block. I feel I should warn people. Don't want you blaming me when you get sunburnt. I warned ye now!

I learned something recently while visiting relatives for Father's Day... apparently glass does NOT protect you from getting sunburns. So if you're sitting in a really sunny room, sunrooms for example, you CAN get a sunburn from the sun's rays coming through the windows. This really depends on the type of glass and how well it protects from UV light, but the general rule of thumb is to understand that glass won't always protect you.

Designer Swimwear in the Winter???

CANADA/FASHION - If you live in Canada or some equally northern country the idea of going swimming in the Winter may sound really ridiculous. ie. Check out our older post about Bikini Skiers.

But lets pretend for a moment that you belong to a gym with a pool... or you have a YMCA membership, who also have pools. Well then, suddenly the idea of wearing designer swimwear in the Winter does not sound so bad... especially if there a cute swim instructor or life guard.

Or maybe you like going to spas where you can luxuriate, or even Women's Retreats in Mexico... Regardless of how and why, its always possible you will be on the lookout for quality swimwear, even though its cold and wintry outside.

Or maybe its BECAUSE its cold outside that you go looking for designer swimwear and a warm place to wear it. ie. Cuba is always nice.

Or maybe you are a supermodel like Devon Owens (see photo on the right) or Adriana Lima. I mention Devon Owens because I like her nose. Its bizarrely cute.

After all its not like the rest of us wear bikinis socially... unless of course we are going to beauty pageants all the time, or perhaps attending beauty school. Note: People often misinterpret what beauty schools actually teach. They do not actually teach people how to be beautiful. What they really teach is cosmetology, the use of cosmetic make-up, hair styling, skin treatments, manicures/pedicures, etc. Its really the safe non-hazardous alternative to liposuction and breast implants.

Anywho, my point is that it is NOT a fashion crime to wear a bikini or other forms of swimwear of the winter. ie. A person could go skiing in their bikini if they were quite daring and then hop in the hot tub soon after.

There are lots of other fashion crimes out there that people can break. Wearing swimwear in the winter is not one of them. Now if you were an ERP software developer and a bit clueless when it comes to fashion maybe you would not even care... you know, the type of person who can watch Big Bang Theory and gets every one of the jokes. Or worse, maybe if you were the type of person who plays Dungeons and Dragons... and therefore is so completely beyond hope.

Although I must admit fantasy artists do include quite a few chainmail bikinis in the artwork... but you realize, that stuff cannot be making very good armour.

(I am not certain what the point of the graphic on the right is about, I just thought it was interesting. Apparently it has something to do with avalanches and windchill effects. The colder and windier it is the less likely there will be avalanches.)

Just like bikinis are not very good at keeping you warm. I recommend wearing a hat, a scarf and some gloves while wearing a bikini outside.

Oh oh oh! I just thought of another way someone might wear a bikini in the winter. Figure skating. Seriously. Those girls must be freezing their assets off.

Oh... and I should mention Winter is actually the best time of year to do two things: #1. Exercise, because you use more energy in the winter as your body tries to stay warm. #2. Go shopping for bikinis. Its the off season so you can get some nice prices.

Padded Bikini Tops For Young Girls?

FASHION - Worried little girls are growing up too fast?

British fashion chain Primark recently stopped selling padded bikini tops for little girls after they were criticized for selling something which sexualizes young girls.

Known more for its cheap price Primark acted quickly after the British newspaper The Sun published a front page story about the product which is aimed at girls as young as 7.

The retailer got in trouble in 2002 for selling thong underwear in children's sizes with the words "eye candy" and "wink wink". Makes you wonder if one of their executives in charge of children's wear is "wink wink"... not normal and enjoys sexualizing little girls.

It reminds me of the preteen beauty pageants some parents in the USA take their kids to... its disturbing.

Which begs the question when is a good cut off line for young women wearing bikinis? 12? 13? 16? I'd argue that if they still have baby fat they're probably way too young.

Its bad enough when 12 year old girls are wearing t-shirts that say SLUT and local governments are increasing sex education at a younger age, but with the internet the issue of predators is an increasing problem.

YIKES! It just feels like the genie is out of the bottle and there's no way to put it back in without sticking a GPS tracking device on your kids. And even then it can be fruitless.

Boycotting all clothes made by Peter Nygard

FASHION - Hello fellow bikini fanatics!

When shopping for bikinis or any other clothes this summer please remember to boycott all clothing made by Peter Nygard.


#1. Peter Nygard is a fashion executive who runs his company like a mini dictatorship. He believes he is "God" and has temper tantrums when people don't do what he tells them to do.

#2. Peter Nygard sues any news agency that says anything bad about him. Very few newspapers or television news companies will say anything about his illegal misdoings because they're afraid of lawsuits and legal intimidation.

#3. Peter Nygard has a slew of people working for him hired especially for maintaining his good reputation. They routinely harass bloggers for saying anything bad about him.

#4. Peter Nygard is 67-years-old and likes having sex with 16-year-old girls. One such girl from the Dominican Republic has since gone missing. She might even be dead. Lawyers for Peter Nygard claim the girl is alive and well and that Peter Nygard treated her well and was a "perfect gentleman". Why would they bother to say that unless they were hiding something?

#5. Peter Nygard's company, Nygard International, has sweatshops overseas. One of the sweatshops in Jordan makes pants for his company and has 1,200 SLAVES trapped inside and not allowed to leave. If they do sloppy work they are beaten and raped. The women were smuggled into Jordan from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The factory workers then stole their passports and kept them prisoners there.

#6. Peter Nygard is currently suing the Fifth Estate documentary company in Canada because they were the only company with the GUTS to stand up to him.


UPDATE! THE OLD BOYCOTT PAGE WAS DELETED NO THANKS TO NYGARD'S LAWYERS: Please join the new group at Boycott Nygard's Brands
