Jessica White :: Joanne Gair/SI
It's hard to be a sports fan in Buffalo. The city hasn't won a championship since 1965 and its beloved Bills, who lose four straight Super Bowls in the early '90s, have the longest current playoff drought in the NFL. But it's not all bad in The Queen City, as locals call it. Buffalo is also the hometown of Jessica White, one of SI's most beloved models of the past decade. In addition to her seven appearances (2004-05, 2007-11) in the swimsuit issue, White has appeared in videos for John Legend, Jay-Z, Robin Thicke and Trey Songz. She has also walked the runway for Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria's Secret and Marc Jacobs. So as the pride of Buffalo turns 29, SwimDaily pays tribute to Jessica White.
