Australian rapper Iggy Azalea just signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina International, Inc. The 5'10" blonde bombshell and Grand Hustle signee joins the agency, which in the past has also represented Fergie, Natasha Bedingfield and Estelle.

"I'm very excited to be a part of Wilhelmina. I've always had an interest in fashion, so it's an honor to be able to expand my brand further with the very best in the industry," Azalea said in statement.

In the meantime, Iggy is keeping herself busy with music — her debut album, The New Classic, is due in stores before the end of the year.

While Iggy is busy expanding her brand her musical rival, Azealia Banks, has been a bit undecided about the future of her music career. The Harlem rapper quit Twitter and hip hop earlier this week, after becoming frustrated with the media and management issues. Banks' hiatus was short-lived as she returned to Twitter days later to release new music.
