Each issue, Complex chooses one stunning model to pose with three different products for the magazine's buyer's guide sections: Hooked Up (The Style Guide), Addicted (The Product Guide), and Laced (The Sneaker Guide, pictured above). But this issue, we decided to switch things up and let you decide which model appeared in our pages with the Havianas Model Search.
We started with 10 sexy models from around the country, then asked you to pick the best. Well, after multiple months of voting, a young lady named Jessica Riccardi from Syracuse, NY came out on top. Get to know this brunette stunner better with additional photos and an interview below...
