Since her ‘viral rise’ in 2011, Kate Upton has been thrust into the limelight as a model and and actress thanks to her swimsuit curves and commercial look. And although she has had support from Carine Roitfeld and landed Italian, British and US Vogue covers, the luxury fashion world is reluctant to embrace the social media star – basically she couldn’t even get an air kiss from Karl Lagerfeld at the moment.
But while she might not be the darling of couture, she has been embraced by the high street brands like Guess Jeans, Express and Sam Edelman. Returning for the third convective time, Kate Upton has been cast again as the face of the brands’s AW14 campaign shot by image duo Mert & Marcus.
The 22-year-old Sports Illustrated model is photographed lying in bed naked while wearing nothing but a sheet and a seductive glare while holding a burgundy and gold shoe from the new collection… Let’s just say judging from this pose that Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss have nothing to worry about.
