Paris Jackson is 19 years old and ready to claim her birthright: super stardom. Michael Jackson’s only daughter has reportedly inked a seven-figure spokes model deal with Calvin Klein, so get ready to see the eldest Jackson on a billboard near you.
“This deal is to make Paris the new face and body of Calvin Klein,” a source told Page Six. “The deal — which is just about to be signed — is huge, worth seven figures, many millions. Expect to see Paris in huge ad campaigns and on many red carpets in Calvin Klein.”
The deal was likely settled in time for Monday’s Met Gala, which Jackson attended with Calvin Klein chief creative officer Raf Simons. In a preview of what’s to come, Jackson wore a Calvin Klein gown in simple black with pockets and a tasteful cutout.
Jackson is carving out a place for herself in the spotlight, and she’s not limiting herself to one industry. After signing with IMG Models and reportedly shooting for Vogue Australia earlier this week, she’s also making her feature film debut. She’s signed on to play an “edgy 20-year-old” in an unnamed comedic thriller for Amazon co-starring David Oyelowo. Between posing for Calvin Klein as an edgy IRL teen and showing up onscreen as that edgy 20-year-old, Jackson has found her niche.
If Jackson can already be considered an “it girl,” she allegedly has a team of 20 to thank for engineering her move into the spotlight. Page Six reports she’s working with Arnold Stiefel, the talent manager behind old Hollywood powerhouses like Rod Stewart and Bette Midler. “After being told, ‘You’re very talented, you’re very beautiful. I will make you famous,’ Arnold is one of the only people that has the knowledge and the power to do it,” says a source.
