The Sky seems limitless
Model, musician and actress Sky Ferreira has moved from CAA to WME. She already was represented by IMG Models, which was part of the WME | IMG acquisition last year. Ferreira currently is the face of the Jimmy Choo fragrance Illicit and will soon be featured in Paco Rabanne’s next fragrance campaign with Gabriel Day-Lewis (yes, son of Daniel). She starred in Eli Roth’s cannibal horror pic The Green Inferno, which premiered at Toronto in 2013 and will be released in the U.S. later this month. Ferreira also will be seen in the true-life drama Elvis & Nixon, starring Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey as the titular title characters, and in crime thriller The Trust, starring Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood. As a recording artist, Ferreira’s 2013 Capitol Records debut Night Time, My Time opened at No. 45 on the Billboard 200 before findings its way onto Rolling Stone’s list of that year’s top albums and Pitchfork’s list of the decade’s top 100 albums. She currently is recording her sophomore album, Masochism, due out next year. Ferreira continues to be represented by Mosaic.
