Easy to understand why Kate Upton was all smiles at LAX Friday (August 30) -- she was just named “Model of the Year.” She’ll receive the award at the 10th annual Style Awards next week in New York City.
The awards will be held at Lincoln Center, a day before Fashion Week, and then aired on CNN on September 14. The event caps a year that’s also seen the 21-year-old again grace the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, appear on the front page of Vogue, and join the ranks of Gisele and Kate Moss as a David Yurman model.
She's quickly making her way up the ranks to supermodel royalty, but in the September 2013 issue of ELLE magazine Kate Upton admits that she has plenty of insecurities.
After striking a glamorous pose for Carter Smith in a stunning Lanvin dress, the 21-year-old blondie revealed that she felt horrible about herself after the initial debut of her first Sports Illustrated cover.
Move over Kate Moss, there’s another Kate on the scene, aspiring to supermodel status.
Kate Upton is the new face for high-end jewelry designer David Yurman. Moss and Gisele Bundchen previously represented the exclusive brand. On Tuesday (July 30), the 21-year-old was the guest of honor at Yurman’s annual rooftop party in New York City.
