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 unfortunatly watched K&K Take New York and now I see why when she came to visit Kris and Kim she had such a hard on to meet Kim. She wanted to use Kim for her connections, not because they were “sisters”.

She is a lovely model…however who ever designed those clothes obviously isn’t a plus size women because we do NOT want horizontal stripes on our hips, tummies or heavier breasts. If you are going to use strips they need to be vertical…the only thing I liked about the photo’s was the red/orange blouse. Everything else I would NOT wear as a +size woman. Sorry!

She’s fat, and the horizontal stripes don’t do a thing for her.

Such a lovely model, but I question the taste of the company making the clothes. The stripes are going the wrong way and will make any curvy woman look wider. Hope the rest of their clothes are more flattering to any woman.

that is what is sad is that normal size woman are considered obese or plus size, thanks to all the photos of celebrities and the wanting to achieve minus 0 size which is NOT NORMAL!!

Is she very pretty and photogenic? Yes. Is she overweight? Yes, she is. The average American IS overweight. This doesn’t mean that we should celebrate that fact, and it’s scary that people tend to to so. “Curvy” and “overweight” are NOT the same thing.
