Keeping up with Kaela! Until now, Kaela Humphries has mostly been known to the world as Kris Humphries' older sister (and Kim Kardashian's soon-to-be former sister-in-law). But that could change thanks to a lucrative modeling campaign with plus-size brand Evans.
Humphries, 29 -- who signed with Ford Models in March 2012 -- is the new face of the clothing company's spring/summer line, which includes curve-flattering dresses (like the blue one above) and chic, flowy tops. She previously appeared in a campaign for The Limited's plus-size brand, eloquii, and has walked the runways for designer Richie Rich.
Appearing in a video for her new employers, the 5-foot-11, size 16 brunette beauty dished on her style secrets and fashion rules. Number one on the list? "Wear clothing that looks best on me and fits the most comfortably. Comfort is super important to me," she said, noting that her "perfect outfit" would be "something that's comfortable, wearable, and accentuates [her] assets."
Humphries, who quit her job as a medical sales representative in Minnesota to pursue modeling, also opened up in the video about the keys to her body confidence. "First and foremost, you need to be your biggest fan!" she advised. "You need to always speak highly of yourself and wear clothes that make you feel good, whether that's comfortable clothing or clothes that are flattering on your body shape. Everybody, in my opinion, has assets that are beautiful, and believing in yourself is that first step."
