Tomorrow kicks off fashion week in New York and to formally get things going there will be the annual Style Awards in Manhattan. Having an amazing 2013, Kate Upton is set to be named model of the year for 2013. She’s been a Sports Illustrated model of the year twice now and 2013 has been busy to say the least.
Upton has joined Kate Moss as the face of jewelry retailer David Yurman and has even had some Hollywood roles. She’s also been on the cover of both the American and Italian Vogue. Upton got her big break when she appeared in Sports Illustrated back in 2011 and it’s been a roller coaster of success ever since.
While Upton has been known as a swimsuit model for most of her career she’s made the transition to cover girl and designer model quite well. While she still gets plenty of calls to wear swimsuits, she’s equally as coveted in retail and fashion. Congrats to Kate on the award!
