She’s been known to kill pride, and hurt feelings, but now you can add slaying photo shoots to her resume. By now, Iggy Azalea has proven she’s more than just a pretty face, but I’m sure she isn’t too upset that her pretty face is getting some great attention. Sure, we all love her music, but it was to be expected that she would begin to dabble in other things as her popularity grew. The blonde bombshell signed to Wilhelmina Models International and she seems excited to be there. In the press release, she said the following about her new endeavor, “I’m very excited to be a part of Wilhelmina. I’ve always had an interest in fashion, so it’s an honor to be able to expand my brand further with the very best in the industry.” Wilhelmina is known for locking in deals with celebs and brands. There maybe be a few endorsement deals in the works. Either way, congrats to Iggy. You can see the entire press release below.
