Just a week after Amanda Gorman made history and stole the show at the inauguration of President Joe Biden the 22-year old National Youth Poet Laureate has signed with one of the world’s biggest modeling agencies: IMG Models.
She’s joining Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez, Chrissy Teigen and Naomi Osaka as celebrities represented by the agency.
Previously, Gorman modeled in ads for Helmut Lang and has been spotted at the front row of Fashion Week in Milan’s 2019 Prada show. She has opened up about her love for fashion previously in an interview with Vogue shortly before the inauguration where she wore a bright yellow coat by Italian designer Miuccia Prada and a red Prada headband alongside jewelry gifted to her by Oprah Winfrey.
“(Fashion) has so much meaning to me, and it’s my way to lean into the history that came before me and all the people supporting me,” she told the magazine.
The signing is another addition to her growing list of accomplishments. Her forthcoming books, “Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem” and “The Hill We Climb and Other Poems,” are already sitting on Amazon’s bestseller list.
