Ethiopian model and American Vogue regular Liya Kebede signed a deal with J. Crew as the catalog's first exclusive girl, according to Fashion Week Daily, and she will also design a line of kid's clothes for the adorable J. Crew line Crew Cuts. Here is our size 2 diva working it on the catalog cover.The millions of dollars needed to secure Liya as a recognizable face shows how well J. Crew must be doing despite today's economic woes. And good for them for keeping it classy: J. Crew has long featured hot new girls in their book, but Liya is the coolest high fashion girl they've used in years. Next we'll be seeing her on Clairol boxes at Duane Reade. All this makes me want to invest in some baggy wide length jeans!
