JESINTA Campbell says she was advised by her manager to wear more appropriate clothing during her appearances on breakfast television.
While filming the Women in Conversation roundtable discussion series for David Jones, Campbell recalled an incident with her management in which she was told to reconsider her fashion choices while discussing difficult topics such as racism and mental health on Nine’s The Today Show.
“I got a call from my manager saying, ‘You can’t wear those kind of tops on TV when you’re talking about such prominent issues. They show a little bit too much”, Campbell told the panel, “and I said, ‘Why can’t I show my tits and have an opinion?’”
The fashion forward star has been known to show considerably more skin than her other female co-stars during her appearances on Today, sometimes opting for strapless designer dresses that show off her décolletage.
Campbell joined 18 other prominent Australian women for the discussion which explored what it means to be a woman in today’s society.
The series was created to mark International Women’s Day and featured high profile women including Lucy Turnbull, Jessica Rowe, Gretel Killeen and Lisa Wilkinson discussing topics such as relationships, motherhood, gender equality, mental health and self-belief.
Other interesting revelations in the conversation included:
Jessica Rowe on post-natal depression: “It was a really difficult thing for me to say, ‘I have post-natal depression’. What right do I have to say ‘I’m doing it tough’ when I knew how much I had longed and yearned for this baby. I really felt like I was losing my mind, I was a crazy lady.”
Mary Coustas on IVF: The 22nd attempt was by far the hardest for me because I literally woke up without hope. You don’t know what you can tolerate until you’ve tested yourself.
Lisa Wilkinson on being single: “When I met Pete, I’d actually been single for 18 months and I was so grateful that I had that period of time.”
Lucy Turnbull on plastic surgery: “People who’ve had way too much work done to their face look so obviously unauthentic.”
Added comedian Fiona O’Loughlin: “They don’t look young, they just look weird.”
