Ali Lohan signs modeling contract, no thanks to her last name

ali-lohan.jpgYou know what's better than glamorous couture gowns? Glamorous couture gowns being modeled by  Ali Lohan. That's what!

OK, maybe not, but someone out there thinks so. The younger Lohan lady has signed with Next Model Management. That's the same agency that represents  Miranda Kerr and Petra Nemcova.

Though don't go thinking she got signed just because she is Lindsay Lohan's little sis.

"In fashion, Ali will set herself apart as a bona fide icon," Alexis Borges, director of Next LA, tells Radar Online. "One that fashion fans will follow not because of her famous last name, but because of the beautiful images and fashion trends she is helping create."

Of course upon hearing the news, Ali's dad, Michael Lohan, was quick to chime in.

"It's been a long time coming, she's so beautiful and I think she will do very well," he says of his daughter, who had previously attempted a music career. "She just had to find her niche."

Hey, at least one Lohan is working.
