Gloria Estefan signs with Wilhelmina Models

Gloria Estefan has signed a modelling contract with Wilhelmina Models.

The 54-year-old star has joined the company's celebrity section which includes artists such as Fergie and Estelle.

Gloria and her husband Emilio are reportedly working with the company on "video and fashion projects".

Wilhelmina Models chief, Sean Patterson, is thrilled to have the international sensation on board.

"She's truly an icon and we see tremendous opportunities for her in the fashion and beauty world," he told the New York Post.

The Cuban-born American singer is known as the Queen of Latin Pop. She is in the top 100 best selling music artists, with over 100 million albums sold worldwide. She has won seven Grammy awards and is the most successful crossover performer in Latin music.

Gloria has been in the public eye since she was in her twenties.

However, the singer recently admitted that she is becoming more and more comfortable with her appearance as she gets older.

"I started just being myself more and more. For women, this happens as you get older. I loved my 40s - I thought they were fantastic. And I'm loving my 50s," she recently explained.
