Keri Hilson, Chris Brown Ink Deal With Wilhelmina Models
Keri Hilson and Chris Brown are reunited once again but not for a new song. The R&B superstars have signed with Wilhelmina International, Inc., specifically the artist management division of the modeling agency.
By signing with the powerhouse modeling entity, Keri and Breezy can hopefully nab beauty and fashion endorsement deals. In a statement (via Woman's Wear Daily), Brown was excited about the partnership. "Art and style has always played a significant role in my life -- it's evolved with me throughout my career," he said.
Critics might argue that this is a risky move for Wilhelmina because of Brown's checkered past. However, Taylor Hendrich, director for Wilhelmina Men, seems ready to revamp the singer's image. “Chris Brown is a... multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand." Judging by his recent fashion spread in Prestige magazine, Brown is ready for his close up.
Meanwhile, we haven't heard a peep from Keri so this venture will keep her in the public eye. She previously inked endorsement deals with MAC and Cover Girl so marketing her brand wouldn't be difficult for Wilhelmina. Plus, this pretty girl rocks!
Keri Hilson and Chris Brown join fellow Wilhelmina clients Fergie, Nicole Scherzinger and Iggy Azalea.
Congrats to Hilson and Brown!
