In March 2012 Models Direct brought you news about (sister of Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kris) Kaela Humphries’ move into plus-size modelling. Almost a year later we can reveal that the 29-year-old has found envious success in her new career. The most recent campaign you will see her in is for Evans’ new Spring/Summer 2013 collection and we have to say that she looks stunning in the pictures we’ve seen. This is what she had to say in a recent interview with the Daily Mail:

What is the one style rule you live by?
Kaela: Wear clothing that looks best on me and fits the most comfortably – comfort is super important to me.

Who are your fashion icons and inspirations?
K: My friends. I really enjoy seeing the different trends that my friends have. They look good, they have really nice clothing and we often have the same outfits.

What would be your new season must have from the spring / summer 2013 Evans range?

K: It would have to be the black and blue shirt [second picture]. It’s extremely comfortable, I like the detail and the blue part is sheer. I really like black too, so I would wear this all the time. 

What’s the perfect outfit choice for you?

K: Something that’s comfortable, wearable and extenuates my assets. I believe Evans has a lot of outfits in their 2013 line that are great choices for me.

Are you excited to be modelling for the plus size market?

K: I’m extremely excited to be modelling for the plus size market and I feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity. 

What advice would you give women with body confidence issues?

K: First and foremost, you need to be your biggest fan! 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. 

Where’s your favourite place in the world?

K: Anywhere that means I’m surrounding by my friends and family. Coming from Minnesota that’s really important to me, and they’re the people who support me through everything I do. 

What’s on your iPod at the moment?

K: The Weeknd, he’s my new favourite artist and is from Toronto. He’s very unique and I listen to it all the time. 

What’s your favourite food?

K: Mexican – and my signature dish to cook is fish tacos.

What are your three handbag essentials for the red carpet?
K: Powder, fashion tape and lip-gloss. 

Flats or heels?
K: Definitely heels.

Dress or jeans?
K: Probably a dress. 

Cleavage or legs?
K: Both!

Summer or winter?
K: Winter – I really like layers.

Eat in or take out?
K: Eat in because I really like to cook.

Hair up or hair down?
K: I enjoy wearing my hair up, but most of my friends and family like it down, so I wear it down most of the time. 

Stay in or go out?
K: On a Friday or Saturday, it would probably be going out – I’m a social butterfly.

Maxi or midi?
K: Maxi dress, for sure.

Britney or Madonna?
K: Definitely Madonna.
