“I am really looking forward to discovering how beauty is perceived in different cultures and participating in some of the crazy things people do to feel beautiful,” she continued. “I know we will all learn a lot on this journey and I am so excited that VH1is coming along on what I’m sure will be a wild ride.”

She is a woman who can set trends and create firestorms with a single photo. We could not be more thrilled that Jessica now gets to take control of that conversation and take a look at the idea of beauty through her own unique, unfiltered lens. And we at VH1are excited to be in the passenger seat next to her as she begins this fantastic journey.”
