Jade Parfitt is a 6’1 British model and presenter. When she was 15, Jade’s mother entered her into a modelling competition on the UK TV show ‘This Morning’, in which she won and was awarded with a contract with MODELS1. Jade was among the crop of British models that stormed onto the scene at the tail-end of the Kate Moss/waif debacle in the mid-90s’, along with Jodie Kidd, another 6-foot-plus Brit. Designers took advantage of her extremely tall, exaggerated frame and soon, she was walking the runways for the elite of designers and fashion houses, such as Karl Lagerfeld, for both his line and later Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and also Galliano for Christian Dior, Thierry Mugler and the late Alexander McQueen, for both McQueen’s own line and when he was under the helm at Givenchy.
Jade became a show staple for Galliano, McQueen, Chanel and Jean-Paul Gaultier, even later into her runway career in the 2000s. Jade starred in campaigns for Givenchy, Versace, Ferre, Moschino, Blumarine, and shot advertisements for Clinique and HSBC.
Jade, who is the ultimate poster girl for tall body-positivity, was called in to Direct the Long Tall Sally #StyleHasNoRules fashion shoot, which she did like a seasoned pro.
Long Tall Sally created the ‘Style Has No Rules’ campaign after a study revealed that 76 percent of women no longer feel confident when it comes to fashion.
However, 78 percent of adult women felt they were confident as a child when it came to choosing outfits, and 96 percent reported they simply “wore what made them happy” up until the age of 10.
