Maren Morris is going from singer to model. Maren just signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, the first country artist to join the New York agency’s celebrity division.
“This is one of the most exciting things for me personally just because I’ve always loved fashion and I’ve loved pushing the envelope and I just feel like taking it the next level with Wilhelmina. For me to be their first country music signing of the agency is incredible.”
She also thinks her deal sends the message, “you don’t need to look like this person to believe you’re worthwhile and beautiful.” She adds, “I think it’s been really inspiring to see my fans and young girls and girls my age look at me as someone to model after—you don’t need to look perfect or sound perfect.”
