The Lions Model Management Signs Their First Plus-Size Model

by Eddie Roche

The model movement continues! The Lions Model Management, who reps Irina Shayk, Kate Upton, and Stella Maxwell, has signed Jess Miller, one of four finalists in a national model search conducted with Universal Standard. Miller is the agency’s first plus-size model on their roster, and was found via a 12-city nationwide search to find campaign faces for the direct-to-consumer brand for women size 10-28.

“Growing up I was always interested in fashion and modeling, but making a career of it seemed out of reach since there weren’t many models working who I thought looked like me, so I naturally felt unwelcome,” Miller said in a statement released by The Lions. “I began to see modeling as a real opportunity for me as the industry has evolved over the past few years, with more models who have nontraditional looks achieving great success.”
