Ciara has signed an exclusive contract with one of the world’s biggest modeling agencies, IMG Models. IMG will now manage all of her beauty, fashion, and modeling deals.
“I’m super thrilled about partnering with IMG Models,” she said a statement, according to International Business Times. “I have always had a strong love for fashion and I’m grateful to be surrounded by so many great friends that are the best at what they do in this industry. This partnership will give me an opportunity to grow and experiment as an artist. I truly look forward to all the amazing things we have planned ahead.”
Even though Ciara hasn’t had an official modeling contract before, she is not new to the fashion world. Over the past year alone, Ciara has graced the covers of magazines like Essence, Shape, and L’Uomo Vogue. Also, she has been Givenchy’s muse since 2009, when she started working with designer Riccardo Tisci, and starred as the face of Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2015 campaign.
Ciara will be in the company of Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss, Gigi Hadid, and Karlie Kloss at IMG, in addition to other musicians-turned-models like Miguel, and Wiz Khalifa.
