“She represents our brand perfectly. She has a gentle balance of being the girl next door, or friend, and a great level of sexiness,” Brian Sugar, cofounder and chief executive officer of Popsugar, said of selecting Kerr for the brand’s first traditional advertising campaign. Kerr has signed a two-year contract).
