That was fast! Just one month after landing a modeling contract with FORD Models’ FORD +, Kaela Humphries is starring in her first campaign, for The Limited’s new plus-size line, eloquii.

“It’s been really great,” Humphries tells PEOPLE. “The line is really fashion forward, the clothes fit and they look amazing. It’s been a really good experience.”

Humphries, older sis to Kris, had dabbled in modeling before last month, but only got serious about the industry recently. “I wasn’t ever like, ‘I’m going to be a model,'” she recalls. “I was a medical sales rep until last month.”

But four years ago, she was “discovered” by an agency rep in her home state of Minnesota, and “did little things here and there,” she says, before getting picked up by Wilhelmina models and ultimately appearing in spreads for Nordstrom and Kohl’s.

After a few years, Wilhelmina released her, so Humphries met with FORD + “to gauge if I had what it takes,” she explains. Obviously she did … and the rest is history. Tell us: What do you think of Humphries’s eloquii campaign?

I agree with bbb. There are plenty of us who eat and conduct ourselves in a healthy manner and are neither anorexic or overweight. Her various pictures seem to show some type of fluctuating water weight in the face, which could mean she diets and over-eats. As a person who tries to do the right thing with my body weight, I don’t like celebrating this any more than celebrating anorexia? What is wrong with some type of weight like 115-135 anymore? Does it have to be 85 lbs or approaching 200?

If you are on the lean side, you are “too skinny”. If you are the heavier side, you are “too fat”. I guess all of us imperfect people can never make all the perfect people happy!

This girl is beautiful. Period.


People need to stop using being overweight as an excuse for everything. Eat smaller portions and exercise. YOU EAT TO LIVE, YOU DON’T LIVE TO EAT!!!!

Congrats to Kaela Humphries on the Eloquii shoot– just 30 days after signing to Ford!

She may be bigger than the photo suggests. They photoshop the bulges and ripples. All cellulite is smoothed out before the page goes to print. She has brillant eyes though.

Her face is pretty… but she is modeling because she is connected to famous siblings/people. I bet every single person reading this knows someone who looks way better than her. If she is a good role model thought that is great.

She looks amazing. Very pretty lady!
