Wilhelmina Models is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year! What better way is there to celebrate than to signing some beautiful people to their agency? Wilhelmina's celebrity division includes Shawn Mendes, Nicki Minaj, Machine Gun Kelly, Marren Morris, and now...NIALL HORAN.
Niall says he has never thought about modeling, but he's simply taking non-music related opportunities as they come. “I’m into the fashion side of things. I think it’s part of our culture, and what we do, and my job,” he told Vanity Fair, “I wouldn’t say I was a model. I’m far from that, but obviously Wilhelmina thinks different. It’s gonna be fun to see what happens. Now that it’s been put in front of me I’m just really excited about it to be honest.”
Even though he's got not experienced in the art of professional modeling, he did namedrop a few familiar artists and actors that he’s admired over the years - namely David Beckham, Ryan Gosling, James Dean and Bruce Springsteen. "Bruce is cool and simple," Horan said. "Obviously [he] is a lot more ripped than I am. He’s, what, 68 years old or whatever, but he’s holding it together very well. I mean he looks great.”
We can't wait to see what you do Niall! Congrats dude!
