Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Since being crowned Miss Universe in 2004, Jennifer Hawkins has cemented her place as an Australian icon with her popular work as a TV presenter, designer and entrepreneur.
Jennifer has signed some of Australia’s most lucrative commercial contracts. Currently, Jennifer is signed as the brand ambassador for retail giant Myer (where she is also a major shareholder), Lovable underwear, Mt Franklin Lightly Sparking, Bioglan vitamins and Redwin skincare. Jennifer is also an ambassador for Range Rover.
Keen to broaden her own brand and unleash her creative side, Jennifer put her business skills into practice inking a supply deal with Myer to design a range of swimwear ‘Cozi by Jennifer Hawkins’ in 2007. Jennifer’s hands-on approach has rewarded her with a multi-million dollar business that has established itself as one of the most recognised labels on the Australian swimwear circuit.
As part of her ever-expanding business empire, in 2010 Jennifer signed a deal to become the face of Siren Shoes as well as designing her own signature range of heels ‘JLH for Siren’. She has since branched out on her own launching ‘JLH by Jennifer Hawkins’ with her first solo collection debuting in Spring Summer 2012. The collection received high praise from both media and consumers, reinforcing Jennifer as a respected designer, businesswoman and fashion authority.
Jennifer’s business interests also extend to property, an ongoing passion of hers. With a strong portfolio already established, Jennifer and fiancée Jake Wall recently completed their first property design project, a waterfront house in Sydney’s Northern Beaches which together they designed and built.
Jennifer has many charitable commitments but one that is closest to her heart is her role as Patron of the HCRF (Hunter Children’s Research Foundation).
