DailyMail.com has learned the reality star has inked a five figure deal with fashion giant PrettyLittleThing.
Lala, 32, is the latest big name to work with the company – Kourtney Kardashian and Hailey Bieber both previously modeled for the company, while Love Island UK star Molly-Mae Hague currently serves as PLT’s creative director.
Lala looked like she meant business when she was spotted outside of PLT’s brick and mortar store in West Hollywood on Monday, glued to her phone.
She puckered up her lips for the camera as she posed outside of the store with her phone and tea in hand, reveling in her new business venture.

Lala, who shares two-year-old daughter Ocean with ex Randall Emmett, also posted a photo of herself inside the pink shop, serving the camera a sassy pose.
The exciting news comes amid a bombshell scandal surrounding three of her Vanderpump Rules castmates.
Last week, it emerged that Tom Sandoval had been cheating on Ariana Madix, his girlfriend of nine years, with fellow VPR star Raquel Leviss for months.
On Friday, Lala took to Instagram Stories with a comment referencing the scandal, saying, ‘To certain men who have done dirty **** thinking I’ve forgotten about you since Scandoval … don’t get too comfortable. I’ve got enough laser beams for all of you. You know who you are.’
Kent last week chimed in on the scandal on her Amazon Live broadcast, as she updated fans on her friend Ariana Madix amid the ongoing fallout of her split with Tom after he cheated on her with Raquel.
‘Ariana is moving with the motion of the ocean, you know?’ Kent said. ‘She’s doing as well as can be expected.’
Kent said that while she hasn’t been ‘super-close’ with Madix ‘for a while,’ she understands that Madix has ‘a really great support team behind her’ amid the public breakup in her longtime relationship with Sandoval, 39.
Kent noted that the salacious scandal interrupted her weekend and brought out the smart aleck in her.
‘The scandal – the Scandoval – happened on a Thursday, which didn’t even give me a weekend,’ Kent said. ‘I’m tired because I turned into a troll, alright?

‘My Instagram was definitely on fire. I couldn’t stop. The troll was activated, okay? So I’m a little exhausted.’
Kent, who has tangled with rapper 50 Cent on social media in the past, joked, ‘I do not know how 50 Cent does it.’
Kent said she hasn’t been in touch with Leviss as news of the scandal has dominated the headlines.
‘She obviously hasn’t reached out to me or anyone on my side, because I was never friends with her,’ she said. ‘I don’t know if she’s reached out to anyone else.’
She described Sandoval and Leviss as ‘two people who couldn’t be further from who they pretended to be,’ adding that she has ‘never liked either of them.’
Kent said she had to be cautious of ‘spilling too much tea’ on the upcoming season of the Bravo reality show.

Kent said that it felt good ‘to have everyone else feel the same way’ about Sandoval since his ‘mask fell’ in the ongoing scandal.
Asked if Sandoval ever made romantic advances toward her, Kent said ‘he would never do that.’
She added: ‘I would eat that guy up … it takes a very special person to put up with all this.’
In related news, Sandoval apologized for cheating on Madix in a statement, days after her name was omitted from his first public comment on the matter.
Sandoval took to Instagram with a detailed statement after receiving blowback in the wake of his affair coming to light.

‘I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process,’ he said. ‘Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I loved. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically in publicly.’
He continued: ‘I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really horrible about that. My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving family and friends.’
Sandoval said his ‘love for Ariana was stronger than any camera could have ever captured’ and some of their ‘best times together were never filmed.’
He added: ‘The same goes for some of our biggest struggles. I wish things happened in a different order in our relationship was not severely tarnished, and that it ended with the same respect for her that begin with. I owed Ariana better.’
Sandoval wrapped up in saying, ‘I am beyond sad that it ended the way it did. The choices I made hurt so many people.
‘I acted in a way that clashes with who and how I want to be. I will continue to reflect and work on myself. I have work to do I always have and I always will.’
