Jess & Nicole's Christmas Wishlists

David Jones ambassador Jessica Gomes and model Nicole Trunfio have travelled to the most exotic places in the world to model for international fashion brands and magazines. But for Christmas, they're happiest back home in Australia celebrating in true Aussie style.

We chat to Jess and Nicole about all things Christmas and what's on their wishlist this year. Down to earth and family-orientated, it's refreshing to hear that to them, Christmas is not about getting the most expensive presents but it's about spending time with ones you love.

What's your plans for Christmas this year?

Jessica: Family, we all come together and celebrate!
Nicole: Spending time with family in Australia. We are going to have a real Aussie Christmas this year, starting in the Margaret River area, sightseeing, BBQ-ing, swimming, messing around; I can't wait! My fiancée [Gary Clark, Jr.] is touring Australia around Christmas and NYE so we will be visiting Tasmania too, and my favourite place, Byron Bay.

Favourite Christmas memory? 

Jessica: Being in Cottesloe beach in Perth and Santa running down the beach in his board shorts with a Santa's hat on and a beer. 

Nicole: Having a water bomb fight in New Zealand after catching some big fish and deep sea diving. We had a family of killer whales follow us around our yacht all day. It was epic.

What’s your favourite Christmas dish?

Jessica: Pavlova.

Nicole: Roast anything.

What do you wear for Christmas lunch? 

Jessica: A bikini!  

Nicole: Something comfortable and free flowing but ultra Christmas Chic. I like to dress up for Christmas to show my gratitude and respect.
