A modeling agency that represents women of all sizes? In an industry that likes to categorize women--as "straight size" (0-2) or "plus size" (12-16)--it's a revolutionary concept. But that's just what former Ford agents Gary Dakin and Jaclyn Sarka, both of whom co-directed Ford's plus board for many years, have done in setting up their new agency JAG. "We are the first agency in New York that’s dedicated solely to women of all sizes," Dakin said.
A little over a month ago, we broke the news that Ford had signed Kaela Humphries, Kris' little sister, to their plus-size modeling division. Not surprisingly, it hasn't taken long for the agency to find her work--and her first gig is a pretty big coup. Kaela stars in the latest campaign for The Limited's plus-sized line, Eloquii.
Jessica Simpson Is Very Pregnant and Very Naked on Elle: Jessica Simpson announced to the world that she's expecting a baby girl-- by getting totally naked for the cover of Elle.

Top Models Dish Their Beauty Secrets: We get the dirt on Andrej's at-home blow outs, Karolina's makeup removal technique, and Coco's obsession with cover-up. Kanye West's Shoes Are Insane, His Collection Gets Mediocre Reviews: Ok, so his second season's show wasn't as bad as the first time -- but it still wasn't very good. And Even though models were tweeting about how scary the shoes were, they ended up being alright. So... things looking up for Kanye's design career?
The Humphries name is back in the press, but this time it's for all the right reasons--and blessedly it's got nothing to do with Kim Kardashian: Kim K ex Kris Humphries' little sister Kaela has just been signed to Ford's Plus Size division. We first got to know Kaela on Kourtney and Kim Take New York where she always came off as sweet, sensible and utterly supportive of her bro. Oh, and totally gorgeous too. So we can't say we're surprised that it seems a fledgling career as a plus size model is in the cards for the brunette beauty. "She is a true size 16-18 and is going to be a fantastic asset to FORD," Gary Dakin, head of FORD's plus-size division, told us. And we agree--100%.
