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?

Most of America is fat/obese/generally living an unhealthy lifestyle – chances are the majority of naysayers are fat – and not half as beautiful as the lovely humphries

I find it humorous that people think that all heavy/obese people are “unhealthy”. As someone who has struggled with my weight for years, I am EXTREMELY healthy. No heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or any other things that supposedly plague heavy people! My cholesterol is normal, the ONLY complaint that my doctor has is that I am anemic. That’s all. Heavy doesn’t ALWAYS mean unhealthy. My THIN cousin has diabetes and her thin husband has heart disease. Everyone is different…

some people here are saying she looks healthy – like a normal american – those are two different things. as a nation, we need to ween ourselves off the processed foods that are packed with fats an sugars and unnatural ingredients. there’s no way this lady – although quite pretty – eats fresh fruits and vegetables and whole foods diet. in other words, a healthy diet.

good for her….

Kim was jealous jell-o-licious of Kaela’s clean good looks… Kris was good to get rid of Kimmy! She’s a GOLDDIGER kANYE knows it well! But whats will all the K names? Is Kris family just as bad with K’s as the Kardashian Klan?

Kaela is a natural beauty. I hope she stays sweet and clean. She seems grounded and well coached.
Good luch girrrrrl.

thanks kim hahahaha

jenna on

the pictures are pretty and she is a pretty girl, but if you google her and see the unphotoshopped pictures… theres no way in the world that she weighs 150 or even 190. shes a big girl. pretty, but big.

hmm… i don’t think she’s pretty at all. not gonna lie, when the post popped up, i said “who the eff is kaela humphries” to myself, and actually thought for a split second it was kris humphries in drag. yikes. and stripes aren’t attractive on anyone, but especially not on overweight people, male OR female.

Meghan on

Ok, I take it back, she is pretty. These just aren’t good photos. I googled her, she’s quite striking. I still stand by what I said about stripes though!!! lol
