More Jessica Szohr Than You've Ever Seen Before in New Sobe Ads
While she may not be queen of the Upper East Side, Jessica Szohr and her rockin' body will indeed rule the jungle, as evidenced by a series of stunning photographs for her new Sobe Lifewater ad campaign. The Gossip Girl starlet is the second to don a selection of the beverage brand's signature skinsuits, sexy tromp l'oeil-painted getups inspired by Sobe's two newest Lifewater flavors, Strawberry Kiwi Lemonade and Macintosh Apple Cherry. Szohr is no stranger to body art: the actress has a number of tattoos including her grandparents' anniversary date and her mother's childhood nickname, so she was a natural choice for the campaign. The images, shot both in the lush Costa Rican rainforest and against lizard-laden street murals by San Jose artist Gualicho, will officially debut in this year's edition of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition but I got a sneak peek yesterday at a special meet and greet happy hour last night with Szohr herself. After taking my obligatory fan photo with the lady of the hour, I sampled some of Sobe's delicious Lifewater cocktails and let me tell you, those electrolytes had me seriously buzzin'. Run-ins with a Gossip Girl, a "SoBe on the Beach," and a DVR freshly packed with new reality TV? That's what I call the American dream.
