Lindsay Lohan's Sister Ali Signs With Wilhelmina Models

Does this face, with its arched eyebrows and mischievous smile, look familiar to you? Perhaps a bit like a certain redheaded former child star who recently checked into rehab for the it's-been-so-often-we-don't-know-the-exact-number time? Maybe the last time you saw it was while nostalgically watching The Parent Trap—or Mean Girls. At the very least, you definitely recognize it from one of the gossip magazines laying around your neighborhood nail salon.

Don't be fooled: this isn't Lindsay Lohan, and she hasn't gone brunette. Rather, it's her 19-year-old little sister, Ali Lohan, who just signed with Wilhelmina Models in New York. The news was just announced in WWD this morning, accompanied by an interview with the star's younger sibling.

Between more general queries about her professional plans, the underlying theme of the question-and-answer session was one of concern. Does she feel like Lindsay's fame has helped her along the way? Is it going to hurt her in the future? Ali doesn't seem to think so.

"I feel like I’m 'Aliana' and I’m just trying to work like every other model," she explained. "I don’t want to be put on any platform. And I don’t think that I have been."

Well. A peek at professional shots released by her agency certainly proves that Ali Lohan looks like a legit model, famous family or not. Clocking it at 5'11, she's long-legged, clear-skinned and has high, sharp cheekbones. Additionally, she seems to have an excellent sense of style; we love that combination moto jacket she's wearing to the left. So much, in fact, that we've found three similar options online.

It's a promising sign: the ink is barely dry on her new contract and she's already making us want to buy things. Provided she sidesteps the troubles that have befallen her sister, it seems she has a great career ahead of her—here's hoping for some killer campaigns. But first...that jacket!!
