Jessie Setiono

A corporate lawyer and professional model, Jakarta-based Jessie Setiono, 33, effortlessly navigates between the limelight and the law, enjoying both fast-paced worlds to the fullest.

A globe-trotting cover girl since 19, when she was a business major in her native Perth, Jessie has graced the front page of every major glossy—from Grazia and Tatler, to Nylon and L’Officiel—and later on became a private practitioner at a top-tier law firm, and eventually moving in-house as a legal counsel for a publicly-listed company.

Behind closed doors, however, this counsel prefers to curl up with a book, devouring everything from Alain de Botton to dystopian fiction. Long admired by the fashion press (and her 47,000 followers) for her sophisticated style, she likes to define sartorial beauty by a different standard. “Elegance is being simple…and subtle,” says Jessie, whose timeless pieces never fail to make a polished statement—whether she’s unwinding over a chilled bottle of Provençal rosé or chasing pink sunsets in Patagonia.
