MAREN MORRIS just made news for something unexpected. She signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models. She’s their first country artist. Other musicians on their roster include Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, and Shawn Mendes.
What does this mean? Well, they’re going to get her photo shoots with fashion magazines, they’ll help style her for red carpet events, and they’re going to set up partnerships with fashion companies. So, maybe a Maren Morris line of clothes?
But she sees something else about this deal that’s very important. “It’s been really inspiring to see my fans and young girls look at me as someone to model after. You don’t need to look perfect or sound perfect.
“I mean I’m five-foot-one, and I’ve got short brunette hair. I’m not the typical country-looking starlet. But I think that’s what gravitates my fans to me. I have an edge to what I say in my songs and it translates visually as well to my personal style.”
