The fashion duo told E! News after the 2021 Presidential Inauguration, “We had a feeling she would get some attention because she has a very specific look and aura, and would stand out whether wearing jeans and a tee, or a neon ball gown.”
They proved to be rather clairvoyant by predicting Ella’s success in the fashion world, saying, “Her talent and creativity knows no limits. In the short time that we have been acquainted, our takeaway is that it would be a disservice to the world for her to not show everyone what she is capable of inclusive of and beyond fashion.”
As Ella put it, “I knew the coat would be a hit because I loved it so much, and I think that’s all that really mattered to me… But I don’t think anyone expected the kerfuffle it caused on the internet.”
Hers isn’t the only signing to come out of Inauguration Day. As previously announced, poet Amanda Gorman also inked a contract with IMG Models. Gigi even gave the performer a very enthusiastic shoutout on her Instagram Story, writing, “WERK,” “FAAAAAM” and “MAJOR.”
It seems the modeling industry is ready for the shakeup.
