She bid farewell to the TV show which made her famous at the end of the last month. But it seems Sam Faiers has already moved on to bigger and better things as it has been announced that she has signed with Elite Models – a top agency which also represents Kendall Jenner.
And in images from her first shoot for the agency, it’s clear to see why she got the job – as she looks every inch the model. Gone is the excessive fake tan, endless extensions and over-the-top lashes and in their place is a sophisticated-looking star who could give even Cara Delevingne a run for her money in terms of looking willowy.
The 23-year-old, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in February of this year, wears a variety of different ensembles which showcase her slim figure. In one image she wears a high waisted leather skirt with a lace crop top, while her hair is pulled off her face in a casual pony tail.
Skintight seems to be the common theme in the shoot as she also wears a sexy pair of PVC trousers – again with a crop top as well as a leather jacket. She also wears a pair of leather shorts and a playsuit, as she pulls a variety of different shapes. Another shot sees her wearing a long white T-shirt, which reads ‘I don’t speak Italian but I do speak Moschino’ and a pair of suede thigh high boots.
Speaking about her latest role, she said: ‘It’s a dream come true to sign to Elite London – like most girls I’ve always loved fashion and beauty. Modelling is an exciting new challenge for me as it’s out of my comfort zone. ‘Over the last few years I’ve learnt a lot about the fashion industry, by running my own boutique and online shop but this is a totally new avenue and I can’t wait to get started.’
Her exciting news comes after a visit to Dubai with her pregnant sister Billie and her mother Suzanne. Sam recently reunited with her former fiancé Joey Essex when they grew close following her recent ill-health. Their reunion is 11 months after they called off their one year romance – just two months after getting engaged.
They previously dated for four months in 2011. This time things are different though as Sam has quit TOWIE in order to concentrate on her relationship.
