Kris Humphries isn’t the only member of his family with a cool job: his older sister, Kaela, just inked a deal with FORD Models’ FORD + division, which specializes in plus-size talent.

“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,” the agency said in a release. “A true size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own.”

The Minnesota native made her runway debut in the fall, walking in the over-the-top Richie Rich show during New York Fashion Week. She also appeared on Kim & Kourtney Take New York, and the recent CW semi-reality show Remodeled.

“There’s a word that I can’t stand, this world ‘plus-size’ model,” Paul Fisher, a longtime modeling agent featured on Remodeled, told Zap2It earlier this year when asked about Humphries. “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.” Tell us: Are you excited to see more from Humphries?

Why does it always turn into a fat versus skinny argument!? We are all women, we are all different. We all have triumphs and struggles. Isn’t life hard enough without fighting over this? How about we accept each other for the people we are? In the words of Dr. Seuss “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

There is no need to be mean about someone’s size. Big can be beautiful too, you don’t need to be a size 5 for people to like you!!!!

Wow, she’s really beautiful.

That’s great! She’s beautiful!!! I think it’s pretty sad that people make such horrible comments about a person’s weight. No matter what size people are, they are still human beings and beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. I think a curvy woman is more attractive than a super skinny one anyway. Wish her lots of luck!!

I think instead of trying to find the negatives in a positive, you should just give congrats to the young lady. In all the struggles that women go through it amazes me that more women do not band together to encourage each other but rather show their unintelligent side by putting one another down. Thick beautiful women are very and scrumptious I might add it’s their confidence and sexiness in their own bodies that makes them even more attractive.

That picture is misleading, she does not really look that good and the woman is the size of a jumbo jet.

JJ on

She is not very pretty, regardless of her size.
