Kate Upton Gets HIGH FASHION AMERICAN VOGUE READY
Kate Upton is featured in American Vogue July 2012. It is no secret that she has been garnering lots of attention for her cleavage, but Kate wants to be excepted as a true "fashion model" in the fashion industry and wants to walk on prestigious, fashion runways. She has been heavily criticized, especially by some at Victoria Secret as being to "curvy" for high fashion. The director of Victoria Secret casting, Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, back in February, went so far as to say you would never see Kate in a Victoria Secret Runway Show. Kate is proving that she has what it takes to do high-fashion modeling as she is being featured in American Vogue dressed in high-fashion wear.
Kate is featured in fall-fashion items ranging from a $4,000 fur-trimmed coat by Michael Kors, $690 Hermes hat, & a blue $2,300 Altuzarra blazer and $1,700 skirt. Kate says of fashion modeling:
"You look great wearing lots of weird expensive things at once" (high fashion modeling) as opposed to the type that says, "Isn't my rack SPLENDID?"
The embracing of a voluptuous woman on a catwalk is not without precedent–curvaceous luminaries such as Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes have managed to traverse the territory between Victoria's Secret Angeld and devilishly high-flying runways (Prada, Louis Buitton with ease. Now it could well be Upton's turn.
