Jodhi Meares is caught smoking at her fitness brand launch

She’s the founder of fitness label The Upside, which promotes a healthy lifestyle with its activewear designs. 

But Jodhi Meares seemed to go against her own brand’s ideology on Wednesday, as she puffed on a cigarette while attending the launch of The Upside’s new collection.

The ex-wife of James Packer, 46, seemed to be in relaxed spirits as she sneaked in a smoke break at the star-studded event at the Vaucluse Yacht Club in Sydney.

Isn’t it supposed to be a fitness brand? James Packer’s ex-wife Jodhi Meares was caught smoking a cigarette at her own activewear label The Upside’s collection launch in Sydney

The former model looked typically chic on the day, donning a pleated floral print midi skirt and a pink scoop-neck knitted top.

Sticking to a pastel palette, she slung a bubblegum pink sweater around her shoulders and carried a zesty neon-orange leather clutch.

Styling her raven tresses in a sleek middle-parting, the fashion designer shielded her eyes behind a stylish pair of oversized shades.

The brunette beauty seemed to be in great spirits at the launch, which celebrated The Upside’s capsule collection with blogger Nadia Fairfax.

Jodhi has always been vocal about her approach to healthy living, previously revealing she loves yoga and believes that beauty ‘comes from within’.    

‘Go to yoga, box, soul cycle – whatever works for you, you just need to find something that gives you joy or, at the very least, you don’t loathe!’ she told Body and Soul.

‘I also always soak in Epsom salts, it’s the cure-all for jet lag and sore muscles post training.’

Discussing her diet, Jodhi added: ‘I eat for the seasons, so if I’m visiting a colder climate I change my diet to root vegetables, lentils and wholesome foods and in summer I’ll eat lighter foods like salads and fruits.’

She was not joined by her rumoured ex-husband Nick Tsindos at the launch, despite rumours that they had rekindled their romance.

The creative director, who reportedly split from Nick last March, proved they were still on friendly terms after they appeared to spend Christmas together.

Dressed in pajamas, the fashion designer featured in two videos posted to Nick’s Instagram Story over the festive season.

The Daily Telegraph first reported that Jodhi and photographer Nick, who is 17 years her junior, had parted ways just 14 months after their fairytale wedding in Hawaii.

At the time, she dropped his last name from her Instagram bio, reverting back to her maiden name Meares after previously going by ‘Jodhi Tsindos’ on the platform.

A month after the split, the former Australia’s Next Top Model host was pictured moving out of her Paddington home.

Earlier this year, The Daily Telegraph claimed that Jodhi and her ex-husband James Packer, 49, were possibly set for a ‘romantic reunion.’

Sources allege the exes have always been on friendly terms, despite the breakdown of their marriage in 2002.

Woman’s Day previously reported the billionaire was ‘desperate for a second chance’ with Jodhi following reports she had split with Nick.
