'Drag Race U.K.'s Tayce Signs to Europe's Biggest Model Agency

Tayce signed to modeling agency.

In an announcement we all saw coming, RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. series two finalist Tayce has signed with a modeling agency.

Though she became known as the lip sync assassin on her season, if there's one thing we all know about Tayce: she's going to give you face. The queen became known for her mug both in and out of drag during her time on the show, so much so that it's been able to book her gigs outside of the franchise. While the season was airing, Pat McGrath's beauty brand had Tayce recreate one of her looks for the brand's Instagram and dubbed Tayce a muse. Magazines have called her for editorials and covers, and Coca Cola even put her in an advert. Now, she's the latest Drag Race girl to be signed to a modeling agency. 

"When I was 16 I took it upon myself to come up to London and see some agencies, 8 to be exact over 2 days," the performer wrote to Twitter. "Everyone single one of them rejected me, saying I was too young, too skinny and not ready. so this is a lil full circle moments for moi."

The agency she has signed to is Models 1. Other talent they represent includes Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Aweng Chol, and more.

"10 years later we made it bby," she wrote. The talent has been signed to the Models 1 men's board. 

This follows news that Bimini Bon Boulash was signed on the women's board of Next Models. Other Drag Race names that have signed to agencies include Aquaria, Gigi Goode, Pearl, Milk, and Naomi Smalls. It arguably all began with Miss Fame signing to IMG Paris in 2016.
