Remember that time Victoria’s Secret model booker Sophia Neophitou said that the lingerie brand would never use Kate Upton and that she’s “like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”? We do. And Upton certainly does, too. So imagine her surprise when, despite Neophitou’s disses, Victoria’s Secret splashed old pics of Upton from 2011 in their new catalog.
According to the NY Post, the Sports Illustrated cover girl is furious about the use of her photos. “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret, and they didn’t contact her before they used these images,” an anonymous source told the Post.
While we don’t expect Upton to be putting on Angel Wings anytime soon, we can’t help but disagree with Neophitou. We think that Vogue’s June 2013 cover girl will look right at home on that catalog, much to the dismay of one Anna Wintour (we imagine).
For more Upton (kind of), meet Kate’s Russian doppelganger, and if you happen to love yourself a little Victoria’s Secret drama, learn more about Kylie Bisutti, the model who found God, ditched the panty purveyors, and wrote a tell-all piece about her experience working for the company.
