Normani Kordei Inks Modeling Contract


Former Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei has signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina. The modeling agency also has artists like Shawn Mendes, Nicki Minaj, and Niall Horan as part of its roster.

"I've always wanted to get into the fashion space. It's something that I've been inspired by ever since I was a little girl," she tells Vogue. "Now, more than ever, I feel like music and fashion play off of each other with music being one of the great influences and artists dominating in the fashion space as well. It's something that I wanted to be part of."

"In my mind, I always wanted to be like Naomi Campbell," she says. "Being a young African-American female, having someone to represent me, whether I was looking at a magazine or on a runway at a fashion show, [seeing her,] I felt like I could do the same exact thing—she made me feel like I could also walk the runway, even though I'm about 5 foot 4."
