While any ordinary girl would be thrilled to grace the covers of the Victoria’s Secret catalogue, the Sports Illuminated Model Kate Upton was not at all pleased seeing her face on the back cover ofthe Victoria’s Secret latest catalogue. Kate Upton’s photo was taken last 2011 where she wasn’t notified that it would be included in the catalogue.
Upton was ‘Not Thrilled’ of seeing her face in the VS catalogue considering the remarks that VS uttered last year about Kate Upton. While the beautiful supermodel has a blooming career, not everyone shares the same opinion regarding her figure. VS booker said that Upton will never be considered in the brand because her looks is “too obvious”. And it seems that table’s are turned now, huh?
It was back in February of last year that Sophie Neophitou commented on New York Times last year that “We would never use Kate” because of her “too common” looks. “She’s like a footballer’s wife,” said Neophitou, “with the too-blonde hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.” Neophitou helps cast VS fashion shows. Upton responded to Neophitou’s comments by telling Access Hollywood, “Which is fine, because I didn’t even try out for their runway show. I don’t think anything she said is that mean. She wanted to out go and buy my face, that’s fine, go buy it! I didn’t. I’m doing fine in my career, I don’t need to walk down their runway.” Upton was still known for her Guess campaigns, swimsuit modeling and Youtube videos that time.
When asked to comment on the issue, VS remain mum and tight lipped. On the other hand, a source close to Upton tells People, “Kate is not thrilled that Victoria’s Secret is using these photos. She is not contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret and was not notified before the images, taken in 2011, were used.” The photo circulated on the net after Buzzfeed reported that Kate was featured at the back of VS catalogue modeling a black bra from Body of VS.
As we remember Upton rose to fame after gracing the covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2012. She became the darling of the fashion set since and in just under 18 months, and she has proven that curvy women have space in the runway. She has appeared three times in the famous Vogue magazine and also fronted the inaugural issue of CR Fashion Book. Additionally, Upton conquered V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and Terry Richardson.
And although Kate is not an official Angel, she has modeled pyjamas for Victoria’s Secret when she is about 18 years of age, well before she became famous in her Sports Illustrated covers.
Well, Upton is not new with controversies as she is always slammed with her curvy figure. Kate just disregarded this thought saying her body is natural and she worked hard for it. She added that her body is what God gave to her and that she feel confident with herself. Way to go girl.
