Ali revealed on Tuesday in an interview with Women's Wear Daily that she has relocated to New York City and signed with Wilhelmina Models, a firm that hosts high-fashion faces like Coco Rocha, Robyn Lawley and Kendall Jenner (another celebrity sibling) on their roster.
She's no novice, though; Ali started out with Ford Models at the tender age of three, and moved to Next Models in her teens, covering Teen Vogue. Perhaps Ali's change in management will allow her career to finally take off.
But don't expect a Lindsay lookalike. WWD reports that Ali has adopted the edgy "standard model uniform (dark skinny jeans, leather jacket, black moto boots)" common in the industry, and she's even -- gasp! -- cut "hipsterized" bangs. Despite calling her sister "awesome," Ali tells the trade she intends to forge a path distinct from her headline-grabbing family:
I would just like to be known as my own person. I don’t need to ride on any coattails. I just want to make my mark myself. I definitely have to prove myself — just showing up on time and doing everything that you’re supposed to do.
Fashionable, but not fashionably late. We're happy to see that Ali has learned a thing or two about punctuality. Think she's got what it takes to make it as a model?
