This year's face of the festival is finesse model, Melissa Johannsen (MJ). MJ's hometown is Alice Springs, but she started her modelling career in Adelaide. Her success in modelling has been remarkable, having walked at Paris, London, and Milan fashion week.....she is definitely someone Adelaide can be proud of!
