The 18-year-old, the late King of Pop's only daughter and middle of his three children, has signed a contract with IMG Models, with the president of the agency, Ivan Bart, sharing the news on his Instagram page on Thursday (02Mar17).

"One singular sensation!! Welcome Ms Jackson! @parisjackson #imgstar @imgmodels @carineroitfeld @mario_sorrenti @crfashionbook #CR10Paris," he wrote, alongside a stunning photo of Paris from her recent CR Fashion Book spread.

In response, Paris wrote: "Thank you @imgmodels. I feel very lucky and blessed."

Fans have long speculated that Paris would eventually break into modelling, with her bright blonde hair, piercing blue eyes and edgy fashion ensembles making her an eye-catching beauty.

She has also been dabbling in the fashion scene in recent months, sitting front row at Dior and Givenchy's recent shows during Paris Fashion Week: Men's, and appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, in which she gave a candid interview about her battles with depression and anxiety as a young girl, and in the years after Michael's death in 2009.

The rising talent is also set to make her acting debut in Fox's new series Star later this year (17).

IMG Models has many top models on its books, including Gisele Bundchen, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge and Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia Gerber.
