Kardashian Curse No More? Humphries' Sis Lands Major Model Contract
The upside to knowing a Kardashian
The Kardashian sisters may indeed be putting a hex on the careers of all the athletes they come in contact with, but it seems any association with the K-crew can open doors, whether you begrudgingly accept their assistance or not. (And you don't even need to be related - well, anymore).
The sister of Kim Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries has inked a deal with Ford Models - the same agency that put Alek Wek and Veronica Webb on the map and launched legends like Twiggy, Janice Dickinson and Christy Turlington.
Kaela Humphries is being represented by the agency's plus-size division.
Ford said, “The division that brought you Crystal Renn, Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine and Marquita Pring among others is excited at the prospect of bringing this beautiful, engaging young woman to markets worldwide. A true size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own.”
Longtime modeling agent Paul Fisher said, “There’s a word that I can’t stand, this word ‘plus-size’ model. Kaela, they call her a plus-size model. I don’t even know what this word plus means. She’s normal. She’s perfect. She’s beautiful."
Congrats. They say it's not what you know...
