Marissa Jade Bio: Modeling Career
Jade works as a professional model for a living, which is clear from her Instagram account and online presence. When asked about the start of her modeling career, she told uInterview: “I was young but everyone always said on the street — people would walk up to me and say, ‘You’re a model’ or ‘You should be a model’… Maybe it was all the confidence that everyone else gave me that I said ‘You know what, there must be a reason everyone walks up to me or says this about me or offers me a gig or tells me I should be in this magazine.” She thus decided to leave school and pursue her career and “never looked back.”
In her career as a model, Jade has been featured in the lookbooks and spreads for brands like Steve Madden, Ralph Lauren, Tahari, Brian Atwood and others. She was a runway model for Eccoci in the summer of 2009 and has starred in several music videos and ads for large brands like Johnny Walker and AT&T.
