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?

Love it – and love the horizontal stripped skirt, proving that plus size folks can wear horizontal strips!

She’s so pretty, she looks nothing like her brother. I’d buy something she is selling.

I think she is a beautiful girl, definitely not obese. Yet I think the picture with the striped shirt is not really to flattering, her smile kind of makes her face look uncomfortable.

She has beautiful eyes. I do believe, however, she got a leg up via her connection to the Kardashians.

RE: her size. If she were between anorexic and overweight say a 6-10 NO ONE WOULD HIRE HER AS A MODEL. That is the sad fact. The women modeling Misses sizes are sticks. The women modeling plus size are size 12-14. I would prefer Misses models to be about an 8 and Plus Size models to be about a 20 so I would know what the clothes really looked like on.

I am neither an 8 nor a 20 just picking some random number in between the ranges.

She is beautiful! But to Tammy- I’m not sure why you think she is NOT plus size. Yes she is similar size to most american women, but that is because MOST american women are obese. So although, she is a good role model, demonstrating not all models need to be stick thin, being OBESE is NOT healthy

It’s sad – the only way how she got signed with Ford is because of the Kardashians and her loser brother. It’s all about who you know…#truth. She isn’t any different than an other plus size woman.

Wonder how she likes having an abusive golddigger for a brother. She’s fat and given that clearly leads an unhealthy lifestyle!! Team Kardashian!

She isn’t obese! She looks great! obese is the people on my 700 pound life!
