The 'Turn Up The Music' star will join the likes of Fergie and Keri Hilson after agreeing to be represented by Wilhelmina International.

Chris Brown has become the latest high-profile name to sign up with modeling agency Wilhelmina International Inc. as they look to explore and develop fashion and beauty endorsements by the singer.

The team has previously worked with the likes of Black Eyed Peas' Fergie, Keri Hilson and Natasha Bedinglfield, and admitted they were looking forward to bringing the R&B singer on board.

Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, said of the signing: "We recognize that Chris Brown is not just a voice, a dance or a lyric; he is a multi-faceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand into these industries."

Chris recently debuted a new street wear clothing line with his fashion label Black Pyramid and has collaborated with the likes of Pink Dolphin on a range of graphic designed t-shirts and accessories.

"Art and style has always played a significant role in my life – it's evolved with me throughout my career," the singer said in a statement announcing his signing. "I'm so happy to join the Wilhelmina team, which has countless successes in the industry, to explore this new avenue." 

Meanwhile, Chris is preparing to kick off his European 'Carpe Diem' tour in Oslo this evening (17th November) and is rumoured to be joining former girlfriend Rihanna on stage as she continues her seven night '777' world tour.

The pair's collaboration 'Nobody's Business', taken from her new album 'Unapologetic', has also leaked online in full this week.
