Jessica Hart

Model

| Midtown East

As with most of our favorite leggy beauties— Cara’s brows, Cindy’s mole, Gemma’s wide eyes— Jessica Hart immediately won us over with one, signature feature: her unmistakable gap tooth. In fact, isn’t it fair to say it’s precisely the Australian model’s “imperfect” smile that makes her so perfect? (OK, her blue eyes, blonde locks and 5’10” stature certainly don’t hurt either.) She’s starred alongside Gigi Hadid in Vogue, walked big-ticket runways from Marc Jacobs to Victoria’s Secret and even founded her own beauty line, Luma (a collection of cosmetics dedicated to her preferred “no-make-up make-up” look). Then there’s the stacks of glossy covers she’s graced too: L’Officiel, Harper’s Bazaar and ELLE, plus a must-see GQ UK appearance alongside Hollywood funny man, Chris O’Dowd. But that’s Hart for you— she’s as much high-fashion glamazon as she is girl next door. Here, Hart sits down with CITIPHILE to reveal her little black book on NYC.

NEIGHBORHOOD STANDBY: Il Buco Alimentari (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x). I love the cacio e pepe there— it is so, so good!

COFFEE OR TEA: Coffee from La Colombe (MAP IT, x). Their coffee beans are out of this world.

ALL-TIME FAVORITE RESTAURANT: Kappo Masa (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x). The shrimp spaghetti (made from shrimp, not wheat) is a must!

COCKTAIL DE LA NUIT: A margarita at Tico’s Tequila Bar (MAP IT, x), the bar beneath Tijuana Picnic!  

MUSIC PICK: Never Never (inside Up & Down (MAP IT, x) is a fun night club that always has great music for a good dance.

BEST BRUNCH: Bar Pitti (MAP IT, x)

BEST PEOPLE WATCHING: See above!

HEALTHY STAPLE: A Greek salad from any Greek restaurant [will do] or I’ll order from Siggy’s Good Food (MAP IT, ORDER ITx)!

GUILTY PLEASURE: Manicures, pedicures and gossip mags! I like Golden Tree (MAP IT, x) for mani-pedis.

REGULAR AT: Il Buco Alimentari. The egg sandwich on the breakfast menu is a must-try!

DATE NIGHT STANDBY: Felice (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x)— quiet and way uptown so I will never run into anyone I know…

DELIVERY GO-TO: Siggy’s is the best!

TO SEE AND BE SEEN: The Bowery Hotel (MAP IT, x).

TO ESCAPE AND UNWIND: Home.

DREAM NYC SHOOT LOCATION: Bemelmans Bar (MAP IT, x) at The Carlyle.

CLOSET CHECK: My style is comfortable and fun, boy-meets-girl, and sometimes quirky. Resurrection (MAP IT, x) is great for vintage finds and Barneys (MAP IT, x) is always easy— they have pretty much anything you would [ever] need.

BEAUTY BLACK BOOK: Georgia Louise (MAP IT, BOOK IT, x) is the best! Unfortunately, there is only one of her so it’s hard to lock her in, but she’s worth the wait!

FIT PICK: I like to mix it up. I have a personal trainer for weights and cardio; I also like SLT (MAP IT, BOOK ITx), SoulCycle (MAP IT, BOOK ITx), Xtend Barre (MAP IT, BOOK ITx), pilates and yoga.
