With her mother in the public glare, even a trip to the local supermarket might turn into a picture opportunity for JADE Dolman’s followers. An unexpected taste of fame has come to the daughter of Channel 10 newsreader Narelda Jacobs.
She made her runway debut at Australian Indigenous Fashion Week in Sydney Friday night after being selected from more than 100 candidates throughout the country. University of Washington student said she wants to assist fashion modeling become more diversified than blonde hair and blue-eyed beauties.
There should be “some dark skin mixed in there,” Dolman said. According to the fashion business, “Aboriginal people aren’t represented at all. A panel of judges, including supermodel Samantha Harris, NRL player Greg Inglis, and Chic Management, the agency that represents Perth supermodel Jessica Gomes, picked her as one of only 18 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander models.
Dolman’s mother thinks her daughter’s excellent looks aren’t the only thing that matters in life. According to Jacobs, Jade is “gorgeous” without seeing her on the catwalk. A nice person who has moved out of her comfort zone for this journey is what matters most to me, but I am glad of the manner she has done so.
