Flashing her trademark gap-toothed grin, Jessica Hart, is one of those supermodels who’s inspired us to embrace our quirks.

Since bursting onto the scene, after appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated 'Swimsuit Issue' in 2009, the Aussie beauty has shown zero signs of slowing down.

Quite literally. Hart is the queen of multi-tasking. Anyone who follows the 30-year-old model and entrepreneur on Instagram will be well aware of how important fitness is to make her feel stronger, more body confident and empowered before she steps in front of the camera.

As the new face for the ‘Find The One For Every You’ campaign with the lingerie and athleisure giant, Hart aims to shine the splotlight on the multifaceted roles women play everyday.

‘I think we all have a few little hidden characters and all lead such varied lifestyles that this is what makes the campaign imagery so relevant. Women are interesting creatures,’ Hart tells Grazia. ‘Embracing the different aspects of your personality and having lingerie that supports all the different types of you helps you to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.’

The Sydney-born star, who’s worked for brand’s including Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors and Tory Burch, admits playing up to the cameras and creating characters is the best part of her job.

‘The lens is on you and with each snap you create a new persona,’ she says. ‘[And] each time I walked on set I wondered what Rankin would make me do next. It honestly was the best part – he always thinks of new ways to get the most amazing shots.’

Her favourite pieces from the collection include the Amourette [‘an everyday feminine lacy bra’], Magic Boost [‘when I go out in the evening or for a special occasion’] to Dynamic Lite’s Extrem Lite more basic, non-wired style for when she’s heading to the gym. ‘I think some bras are almost like an armour,’ Jessica adds. ‘It’s also the foundation to your outfit – if your bra’s not right then how can the rest of it be?!’

When are you at your most confident? ‘The most beautiful women are just simply comfortable in their own skin’ she says. ‘Just being the best version of yourself is the way to achieve that. As does having empathy, integrity and embracing your individuality.’
