Meares took her initial steps into the spotlight when she was chosen as a Moove milk model outdated 16. In 1992 she sang in the band Euphoria, for which she wrote the song “Karma”. Jodhi later made her name as a swimsuit model before establishing her own swimwear label, Tigerlily Swimwear.
In October 1999, she married Kerry Packer’s son James Packer. The heir to the Packer media fortune and the former swimsuit model were married in the spring, in a storybook wedding that cost much over A$10 million. Elton John sang and 750 guests appreciated a party at the Bellevue Hill compound of James’s father, Kerry Packer. His wife, Ros, referred to as it “the wedding of the decade.”
In April 2002, Jodie became Jodhi, said to be due to her commitment to numerology, although it did absolutely nothing for her luck. In June 2002, Jodhi and Packer announced their much-anticipated separation, and later divorced.
In addition to her perform as designer and owner of Tigerlily (named from the character in Peter Pan), and recently opening the Tigerlily flagship store in Paddington, Sydney, Jodhi Meares is an occasional reporter for the Nine Network’s travel show Getaway.
She was recently awarded the hosting job for FOX8’s Australia’s Next Top Model which was produced as an Australian version of America’s Next Top Model, the most popular reality show on the network.
