Last week Kate Upton's GQ cover dropped but it was actually her profile in US Vogue's July issue that has everyone talking. The model, most known for that infamous 'Cat Daddy' video, has desperately been trying to crack the fashion industry so the feature was undoubtedly a step in the right direction for her. Whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not sure.
Rather than going down the obvious route and styling her in swimwear, Upton looks transformed and completely covered up sporting an Altuzarra coat, knee high boots and a dress that reveled just a flash of her knees.
It is in fact those two deeply abbreviated swaths of fabric on which Upton's not inconsiderable fame rests, which might make you think that this Sports Illustrated cover girl, almost always photographed nearly naked, is not exactly the ideal customer for Altuzarra's cuddly coat.
Kate Upton has really tried to push forward into the fashion world of late. That 'Cat Daddy' bikini video definitely didn't help but nonetheless, she hasn't been doing too badly. Over the past few months she's bagged a Muse magazine cover and has also appeared in an editorial shot by Terry Richardson in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar. Despite her efforts, nobody expected the model to get an invite to the Met Ball on Monday and neither did she. If reports are anything to go by, she's taken matters into her own hands.
Today Page Six reports that the Sports Illustrated cover girl has paid $25,000 of her own money to make sure she could attend this year's Costume Institute Gala. According to sources, Upton will wear Michael Kors to the event and will sit at his table for the event. The move seems like quite a drastic one but one thing it does prove is that like her or not, she isn't going away any time soon.
