Jesse Jo Stark is like that girl in Junior High that you were so jealous of. The girl who got along with all the guys, but still had the coolest girlfriends. Her unique face, long, unbrushed hair, platform creepers, black knee socks and excessive, amazing jewelry has every fashion blogger proclaiming a “girl crush”. It helps that’s she’s a total sweet heart and a current muse of Mark “The Cobra Snake” Hunter. Enjoy the interview!
