Ali Lohan has signed a modeling contract with NEXT Model Management, which has represented the likes of Miranda Kerr, Petra Nemcova and Molly Sims. The 17-year-old has already demonstrated an incredible talent for happening to be next to her sister in paparazzi shots, but the agency's director says her family's famewhoring has nothing to do with this. NEXT director Alexis Borges explains: "In fashion, Ali will set herself apart as a bona fide icon. 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." Congratulations on the new job, Ali. You're going to teach your parents a lot, starting with how to earn money without calling the tabloids. [E!]
