Kate Upton Page 1
What better time than New York Fashion Week to premiere a film about one of fashion’s most recognizable names?
Kate Upton’s Catdaddy recital for Terry Richardson may have been one for the skin-baring books, but it still doesn’t hold a candle to the scandal that was Marilyn Monroe’s breathy “Happy birthday Mr President” to JFK. Still, we can’t help but be impressed by how well the 2013 Model of the Year was able to channel the inimitable Hollywood icon for Vanity Fair’s 100th birthday (despite going dark from the ’40s through the ’70s) cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Her bright blonde pin curls, darling blue eyes, red rouge, and champagne-colored playsuit would have been just enough for Joe Dimaggio to do a double take back in the day.
….or maybe it won’t.
Maybe the meeting for Elle‘s September issue went something like this:
Editor 1: Wouldn’t it be fun to see how many times we can get away with styling Kate Upton as a bombshell without anyone noticing?
The All-American beauty has replaced the Brazilian super for David Yurman‘s latest ad campaign.
Thanks to Buzzfeed we have not only become privy to Chrissy Teigen’s line of bridal bikinis (which come complete with veils, Swarovski crystals, and Chantilly lace), but learned that the nuptial-inspired collection is actually called, Beach Bunny Bride. Just as amusing is the lookbook, which stars Kate Upton, obviously.
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.
It’s official: Kate Upton is Vogue‘s “American Dream Girl”, having landed the cover of the June issue after many months of speculation and rumor rebuttal from all sides. The news is remarkable not only because of Upton’s “Cat Daddy” origins, but because the glossy has seen so few models on its cover in the past decade that this puts the Sports Illustrated star in a very rarefied group indeed.
Kate Upton may not have been wearing Apple Bottom jeans or boots with the fur at Wednesday’s Samsung launch party in NYC, but that didn’t stop her from getting low on stage with co-host Flo Rida. The model (and rumored soon-to-be Vogue cover girl) got up in front of the smartphone-wielding crowd — all of whom, no doubt, had already seen her “Cat Daddy” and “Dougie” her way to YouTube superstardom — and danced along to “Low”, gamely turning around so the rapper could, as the song goes, give “that big booty a smack.” Naturally, there’s plenty of video evidence.
Wanna go to your happy place? Check out Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model Kate Upton burning up the red, or, blue carpet at a launch event last night. No, she will not go to prom with you. But you can appreciate her perfectly poufed hair and bold, blue dress in this installment of the outfit of the day.
This year is shaping up to be even bigger than the last for Kate Upton, as we have word straight from Samsung that she will be be covering the June issue of US Vogue.
Have you fantasized about getting hitched to a mail-order Kate Upton? If so, you may be in luck. Not only does a Russian Kate doppelganger exist, her name is Ania, and she calls herself a “mail order bride in training”.
We’ve watched our fair share of awkward interviews on Jimmy Fallon, but last night’s with Kate Upton definitely takes the cake.
A more demure look than usual, and we love it. Oh, and we’ve also got the tricks to her pre-Sports Illustrated shoot slim down technique.
If you like babes and bikinis, well, today is your lucky day. We’ve got your first look at this year’s Sports Illiustrated Swimsuit Issue, which as you all know by now, features Kate Upton on the cover. We’ve also got some of the models on last night’s Letterman, and images from the inside spread.
If the rumors are true, then Kate Upton joins an elite group of scantily-clad supermodels to nab back-to-back issues of the magazine’s most high-profile issue.
The shoe line is riding on Kate Upton’s celebrity, and channeling her as the face of the brand in a new series of ads.
Just because she’s landed herself a few Vogue covers and earned the Anna Wintour seal of approval doesn’t mean you’ll be seeing Kate Upton dominating the catwalk this season. In fact, the model is choosing to forgo Fashion Week entirely.
We’ve already seen Kate Upton “wash” a car as part of her duties for Mercedes-Benz‘s Super Bowl commercials. Now, the bigger budget spot is here, featuring the model alongside Usher, Willem Dafoe, and an average Joe faced with one big Faustian dilemma.
