Paris Jackson Signed Modeling Contract With IMG
Modeling agency IMG has signed Paris Jackson, adding her to the famous names borne by celebrity kids on its roster, according to Refinery29.
IMG already has a list of well-known models on the books. Kate Moss, Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid, and Ashley Graham are all among those at the agency. And other celebrity children, like Sistine Stallone, Sylvester Stallone’s daughter; Christie Brinkley’s daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook, and others also work with IMG.
IMG president Ivan Bart introduced Jackson as a new signee with an Instagram post and on Twitter on March 2, which included a picture of Jackson in white with teased-up hair and ruby lipstick, out of the CR Fashion Book. Bart’s post read “One singular sensation!! Welcome Ms Jackson!”
The 18-year-old Jackson has been making fashion headlines for a while now. She sat front row at Dior during Paris Fashion Week, soon after a photoshoot in Paris launched speculations that she was starting a modeling career. She also had a front seat at Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Fashionista reported. She appeared in awards show fashion coverage for her sparkling Balmain ensemble for the Grammys, and her recent CR Fashion Book appearance was in the same issue as the Hadid sisters. She even made the cover, clutching a bright blue dress with pleated ruffles to her chest, sporting red fingernails.
Jackson also already carries an Instagram following of more than a million, setting her up for a solid branding base.
Refinery29 reports Jackson said in a Rolling Stone interview that her father simply wanted her to be happy, whether that meant becoming famous—even more famous than him—or keeping out of the limelight. Although the star’s daughter has not been long in the public eye, she’s apparently decided that making headlines is a worthwhile pursuit, and she’s following the fashion route.
