R&B beauty Ciara has signed with a top modeling agency in an effort to further her career and broaden her appeal.

The “1, 2 Step” singer, who is currently the face of rap mogul Jay-Z’s Rocawear clothing line, is now a client of modeling agency Wilhelmina. Her new agents will focus on winning Ciara more contracts in the clothing and fragrance industries.

Ciara – who is rumored to be dating 50 Cent – is ecstatic about the new career path.

She says, “Modeling has always been one of my aspirations. But I was insecure about my height. I thought I was 5 foot 7 inches but I just found out that I’m 5 foot 8 inches so I’m really excited about that.”

The star has also unveiled plans to launch her own fashion line with budget department store Steve & Barry’s, following in the footsteps of actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s “Bitten Range.”

Ciara adds, “I have a couple of cool things that I’m working on. The coolest thing about Steve & Barry’s is they cater to everyday people. I won’t say that my line will be like theirs, I want to stay true to who I am, but most importantly it has to be affordable.”
