Pop Star Lands New Hit Single & Becomes National Spokesmodel for Seven7 Premium Denim

LOS ANGELES, June 29-- From the top of the pop charts to the fashion runway, Curb recording artist, Kimberley Locke is the new national spokesmodel for Lane Bryant's Seven7 Premium Denim collection. Seven7, currently sold exclusively in select Lane Bryant stores, will launch chainwide on July 10 with the introduction of the campaign. Locke's image will be featured on in-store banners, the company's Web site, direct mail and in August issues of Glamour and In Style, continuing in September issues of O, The Oprah Magazine and Essence.

Locke scored a #1 Billboard hit single when her "8th World Wonder," topped the charts last year. Her current single, "I Could," is a top 20 smash at Adult Contemporary radio, according to Radio & Records. Both were lifted from her debut album, "One Love."

Currently recording her second album for Curb (due early 2006), Locke has new recordings on two current Disney albums: "Wishes" and "DisneyMania 3," as well as Curb's "The Perfect Man," Soundtrack album to the Universal film.

During a recent concert appearance in San Francisco, Locke announced that her wedding engagement to Don Campbell is off and that her up-coming album, where she contributes a large amount of the song writing, will reflect her emotions from the last few months. Stiletto Television, a division of Locke's management representation, had announced a proposed reality show following the couple's preparations for the nuptials. Locke's solo footage will be used for a planned DVD to coincide with her next album.

Locke was the second runner-up on season two of the Fox-TV series, "American Idol." She is represented by both William Morris Agency and Ford Models 12+ division, as well as Stiletto Entertainment for management.

Good for Kimberley! I LOVE her voice. :) I haven't heard anything about her music except for that 7th Wonder song which was just okay. She could do a lot better than that and I hope she does just that on the next album. (Too bad about her wedding)

What the hell is a Size 12 doing Lane Bryant ads for? I mean, a Size 12 is sort of big in Hollywood, but in the real world, she's small! She nicely proportioned, too. The last time I was in Lane Bryant, it was for like really large women, though it's been a lot of years given that I'm a Size 4, so I have no need to go to Lane Bryant. Or is this Lane Bryant's scheme to get a woman who isn't fat enough to shop there to do ads for them, so that the real fatties will see the ads and think they can look as good as her?

I know what you mean but in today's world, Size 12 is considered Plus Size. Try going to The Gap and asking for a Size 12. :o

It's considered a little larger in department stores, yes, I have to shop in petite and juniors, but a size 12 is pretty small when you look at how obese people are these days. I guess maybe after you get like over a 16, you just go to Walmart, so decent stores top out too low.

No arguments here, Helen. I was a little surprised also when I read that Kim was hired by Lane Bryant because I didn't think she was big enough but the standards have changed so much. In an episode of America's Next Top Model one of the girls was a Size 6 and they were in Paris and an agency there told the girl that a Size 6 was considered Plus Size in the modelling world. :confused: (Tyra Banks and some of the other models look like they're an 8!!)

:haha: "The Crap" is okay (good sales) and I shop there because it's one of my daughter's favorite stores. :shrug:

Yeah I saw Kimberly somewhere and I think she's bigger than a twelve these days...I think she's a 16. I think Lane Bryant may have 14's but not many...I believe most of their clothes start at 16.
