Profile

Birth date: June 10, 1992
Country: United States
Height: 1.78 m / 5.8 ft

Overview

When Kate Upton was a young girl she had a shining future as a promising equestrian. She won several international competitions, but at the age of 16 decided that her future was not on the back of horses rather under the spotlight of the fashion industry. In 2008, Upton attended an open casting call at Elite Model Management and was signed the very same day. She has since taken the media by storm, climbing her way to international model stardom; from Sports Illustrated bikini babe to Vogue cover girl in less than a year. She is famed for her oozing sex appeal, huge smile, and curvaceous figure.

Model Bio

Rocking the Runway

Upton mainly features in ad campaigns, magazine editorials, and covers. Since her modelling breakthrough in 2010, she has taken to the catwalk for two Beach Bunny fashion shows (2011, 2012).

Ad Star

Upton likes to pose in front of the camera, and fashion photographers and editors can’t help but fall for her cheeky charm. In 2010, Upton was announced as the face of Guess and the same year pictured for Dooney & Bourke’s Fall ad campaign. She has also featured in campaigns for Betsey Johnson and Beach Bunny. In 2013, Upton landed her first high fashion campaign for Sam Edelman footwear.

Off the Runway

In 2011, Upton featured in the Victoria's Secret catalogue, but her true rise to stardom happened overnight. After appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimwear Issue in 2011, Kate was dubbed “Rookie of the Year,” and her barely there bikini became an international conversation starter. In fact, the Swimwear Issue was so hot that in 2012 and 2013 the all-American model was chosen to feature on the SI cover again. She is the only model chosen to be a covergirl back-to-back since Tyra Banks in 1996 and 1997.

She has since landed herself a GQ cover shot by Terry Richardson, an Esquire cover, her first profile in Vogue’s June 2012 Issue, featured in Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, posed nude for Cosmopolitan‘s November 2012 issue, and made it to the front of British and Italian Vogue.

When she’s not making headlines for her raunchy videos (dancing to the Rej3ctz song, "Cat Daddy"), or running from photoshoots to fittings, Upton enjoys riding horses and spending time with her friends and family.
