It may have been her mother, Danielle Staub, who got tongues wagging during the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but all eyes will soon be on Christine Staub. The 15-year-old has just signed with IMG Model– the same agency that represents Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen. “She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tells PEOPLE.com. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.” The 5’10” soon-to-be high school sophomore is still taking test photos, but it is possible she could hit the catwalk as early as September for New York Fashion Week, according to IMG. “This is all very new to me,” Chirstine told The Daily. “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!” Tell us: Do you want to see Christine hit the runway?

She actually looks like a young Kate Moss with a hint of Dakota Fanning. That’s the style. Gorgeous with a little bit of child heart. That’s what gets you far in Hollywood.

I thought she was gorgeous the first time I saw her on the show, I’m not surprised one bit!

I think it’s kind of funny that Teresa worked so hard to push her daughter on modeling agencies (with a lukewarm reception at best), but Danielle’s daughter is sought after by the best in the business.

I don’t even like the “prostitution wh*re,” but I really didn’t care for the ugly way the rest of those women ganged up on her. Probably the least tacky person on the show was Danielle’s daughter… I wish her the best.

Yes, I’m happy for her. She definitely stood out as beautiful whenever she would be on the show. Plus, she seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders….when you’re 14/15 and giving your GROWN ADULT mother sound advice….that says a lot!!!

Pamela on

I’m actually jealous…she’s wearing no makeup in the photo and still looks gorgeous…not fair lol. She could definitely become a model…she has the looks and the height. I hope she makes it far! I just hope she doesn’t get caught up in the glamour and become like…Lindsay, for example. Let’s hope she doesn’t take her mother’s advice lol.

Tori on

Good for her. Maybe she can make some money and get away from her mother. I could foresee her crazy mother taking her modeling money since she seemed to be pretty broke.

Darcy on

I always thought she was a pretty young lady.

Magda on

Thanksfully, she does not look like her mother at all! Gorgeous kid. Looks a little like Mariel Hemingway but much prettier.

Thankfully, she does not look like her mother at all! Gorgeous kid. Looks a little like Mariel Hemingway but much prettier.

She’s very pretty, I hope she stays natural and not end up super fake like her mom. Plastic surgery does have limits people!!
