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?

Tired of “fat is normal”. People who are large need to eat correctly (cut out the processed convenience foods, etc) and exercise, NOT encourage everyone to be fat like you.

In a word….BEAUTIFUL! It is so refreshing to see a youngwomen with a very healthy body for a change…I for one hope to see models take on a more healthy appreance and not a starving girl looking like their ready to passout. Bravo!!!

Brrravo, Gorgeous Kaela Humphries! She’s very photogenic. I LoVe it! Both are pretty. I prefer the shorter skirt.. a refreshing and sexier look. Plus size, curvy or whatever.. It’s truly not important what people call you, it’s what you answer to.. She’s a doll. I wish her all the best. Cheers!

I don’t see anything outstanding about her pictures. They’re okay. Might be more to do with the lackluster clothes than her.

Gosh you people are sooooo judgmental. How the h*ll does this women’s waistline effect you? You keep all your bodies the size/fitness you want for you, and she should have the same freedom. You all must not have too many issues of your own in life; otherwise I can’t see why you would put your energy into getting all worked up over something that has ZERO to do with you!! Whether it is a public figure or someone walking down the street, by saying things like “ugh…she’s soo fat; why is she wearing stripes?”, you are essentially ‘othering’ that person by discriminating them to help define yourself as superior.

She is lovely. Nice to see a normal size real woman looking pretty in clothes. We, as women, like to see ourselves in other women, so we can relate to them. This lady is very relatable indeed. She has a nice fresh girl next door look.
