Jessica Gomes is the cover girl for the November issue of Max Made and opened up about the experience of shooting for SI.
“Sports Illustrated is a big deal in the modeling world," Gomes said. "Not only do you get the opportunity to travel to some of the most extraordinary places with some of the most talented creatives in the world but it teaches you to be comfortable in my own skin. Becoming a SI model for a swim girl is like getting a Vogue cover in the fashion world. Only a very selected group of girls get this sort of opportunity. An opportunity that can and will open a lot of doors not to mention make you an American household name!"
The story was accompanied by a scintillating photo spread, shot by Ezra Patchett, that was shot on the shores of LA’s Iconic Point Dume beach just north of Malibu.
