Dylan Penn has been signed by Premier Model Management.

The 22-year-old star - who is the daughter of A-listers Sean Penn and Robin Wright - will be working with the London-based modelling agency responsible for kick-starting the careers of Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford, among others.

The company is delighted to represent Dylan and believe the blonde beauty has what it takes to become the next big star.

Emily Sykes, head of special bookings at Premier, told Vogue.co.uk: ''We are very excited to be working with Dylan.

''She represents the modern model and muse - so intelligent, with bags of personality and talent. We see great potential.''

Meanwhile, Dylan - who was rumoured to be dating Robert Pattinson earlier this year - is about to begin filming 'Condemned' but won't be too upset if her acting career doesn't pan out.

She previously said: ''I'm trying out this whole acting thing... it's hard to say for me because I've rejected it my whole life until now. I literally can't say it without laughing.

''My truest passion is writing so I continue to do that on my own while seeing what all the buzz is about being in front of the camera.''
