IMG Models has officially re-signed Christian Combs to its brand. The hip-hop artist, actor and model is the son of Sean “Diddy” Combs and the late model Kim Porter. Christian has a history with IMG Models, having signed with them in 2018 for worldwide representation.
Christian scored a deal as the face of the Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana in 2018, and the agreement allowed him to walk his first Met Gala with D&D the following year. During a 2019 interview with Fashion Week Daily, Christian said working as the face of the brand was unbelievable.
“It was really dope how they had the King theme. Fashion goes hand in hand with who I am. I’ve always seen Dolce & Gabbana as being such a high brand. I never thought I would be modeling for them and especially going to the Met Gala,” he told Fashion Week Daily.
Since his Dolce & Gabanna deal, Christian has also worked with fashion brands Puma, Lanvin and Savage X Fenty. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, he mentions how he is working on expanding his footprint in multiple industries.
“I’m excited to be part of a team whose work speaks for itself and looking forward to expanding my footprint in fashion and beyond,” Combs told The Hollywood Reporter.
Christian has had a successful run thanks to his talents, looks and father’s impact, but he wants many to know he works hard for the roles he has set his eyes on regardless of his father’s legacy.
“The big misconception is that I don’t have to go hard or that everything will be handed to me. You gotta go harder just to prove yourself a little extra. Some people may have one song that’s hot to get them lit,” he told Fashion Week Daily. “For me, it might take two or three just so people know, OK, he’s not playing around. It’s not a game. He’s actually coming with albums and heat. I A&R’d this project, got the producers, and put it all together myself!” he added.
Congratulations to Christian on his new career venture.
