According to Vogue’s report, Minaj signed to Wilhelmina’s celebrity division after modeling for brands like Roberto Cavalli and posing for renowned photographers like Mario Testino. Joining an agency will open up doors for bigger and badder modeling opportunities.

“I love the synergy between my music and how it inspires my fashion. My message is always celebrating your own style,” Minaj told Vogue. “I’m thrilled and honored to have signed with Wilhelmina—they get me.”
