Ciara Signs Exclusive Contract With IMG Models

According to Essence, Ciara signed an exclusive modeling contract with IMG Models, the agency announced today.  The 5-foot-10 entertainer is hardly new to the business of modeling. She's a regular cover girl for pubs like L'Uomo Vogue, Shape, and of course, ESSENCE. She starred in Roberto Cavalli's fall 2015 ad campaign, and has also been an ambassador for Topshop and Coach.

The Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter was previously represented by William Morris Endeavor—the WME in WME/IMG—so it's actually a lateral move. WME will continue to represent her for music, though IMG will now handle all of Ciara's beauty, fashion, and modeling deals.  She will be in good company as IMG also represents big names like Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Kate Moss.  The news continues the winning streak for Ciara, who just dropped her sixth studio album "Jackie" and recently engaged to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with a diamond so clear she can probably predict her next contract in it.
