Faces of LiteStyle: Jess Donckers
There’s more than meets the eye
Jess Donckers (31) is a Belgian TV Host and successful model known for her killer body. One of her most memorable shoots was for Playboy’s February issue in 2010. The cover with Donckers remains within the top five of the publication’s most popular issues. She also has her own fashion and lifestyle platform: www.thangfactory.com – covering the latest and hottest trends in fashion and beauty with a focus on cultural figures. This fall, Donckers will be exercising her playful nature to host a new primetime television show called BEET (co-hosted by Manou Kersting) – a comedic show about pranking!
Donckers also has a serious side to her and recently went back to school to study psychology. “Listening to people and their stories has always fascinated me,” she explains when asked about her goal to help abused children and animals. Being a single mum, she knows how difficult and important a good education is. “When I see the younger women in my class, I feel a little bit old… But my Silhouette eyewear gives me that small hint of sex appeal,” she laughs.
Despite her relative age, Jess’ life course has led her through different worlds and stages. “I always try to look at things in an open and objective way, with an almost childlike curiosity when it comes to discovering the world. I believe life brings you unexpected things. Good or bad, they are always things that you can cope with.”
Jess Donckers is wearing Silhouette SPX Connection in color 6051.
