She’s a lifestyle blogger, New York Times best-selling author, daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, and now she’s officially a model! Katherine Schwarzenegger has landed her first major modeling gig as the face of the international bridal brand Atelier Pronovias.

And Katherine is in great company as supermodels Irina Shayk, Karolina Kurkova, Doutzen Kroes and Victoria’s Secret Angel Romee Strijd have all previously modeled for Pronovias. The 26-year-old USC graduate showcased several wedding dresses from the 2017 collection designed by the brand’s creative director Hervé Moreau.

Schwarzenegger wore various silhouettes featuring chic necklines, revealing backs, elegant detailing and mixtures of fabrics. Though she posed in bridal couture, the older sister of Patrick Schwarzenegger could see herself donning Pronovias pieces down a different aisle.

“I could easily see these being worn on a red carpet, to a gala or for a black tie event,” Schwarzenegger explained. “The collection is beautifully made and the dresses are delicate and very comfortable.”

The star spoke with Hello! magazine about her latest partnership, emphasizing the importance of body image in the fashion world. “I’m a woman with curves and I think these dresses are very flattering and pretty for women of all shapes,” she said, adding, “The most important thing that I’ve learnt is that the perfect body doesn’t exist.”
