After hearing the news that Keri Hilson inked a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models, the very familiar words from her 2010 "Pretty Girl Rock" anthem started running through our heads: "Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful." We never have and we never will! The R&B singer joins the class of Iggy Azalea, Fergie and Natasha Bedingfield, who are all musicians-turned-models thanks to Wilhelmina. But really, we should have seen this coming a long time ago.

Covergirl has been ALL about adding fresh faces to its roster lately, what with new additions like P!nk and Janelle Monae joining the team this summer. But now the beauty brand is switching it up a bit, adding a pair of emerging DJs from Down Under to its cast of really, really, ridiculously goodlooking spokesmodels. Meet NERVO, the Australian sisters who have taken the EDM world by storm with dance party anthems this year like "We're All No One." While Liv and Mim Nervo may have started out as songwriters (they've penned hits for Britney Spears and Ke$ha), producers and DJs, the girls recently signed with Wilhelmina Models. Considering this is the same agency that also reps Iggy Azalea, it was ONLY a matter of time before they hit it big fashion-wise, as well.

Iggy Azalea is officially a MODEL, y'all! The Australian rap rookie just inked a deal with Wilhelmina Models, the very same agency to boast notable alumnae Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Cassie. Needless to say, Iggy's in great company, and it's not at all unwarranted. We've been heralding (a.k.a. glorifying to no end) Ig's Amazonian physique since we first laid eyes on her. And with that pelvis-length platinum pony whipping around an impossibly tiny waistline, who can really blame us for going all cartoon wolf-eyes on the girl?
