If Kate Upton is good enough for Vogue, we guess that means she’s good enough for Victoria’s Secret, too.
According to the New York Daily News, the curvy model just landed the back cover of the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog. While Kate Upton and Victoria’s Secret would seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, this placement comes about one year after the booker for the brand’s annual fashion show, Sophia Neophitou, famously said, “We would never use her. She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”
It should be noted, though, that Upton actually already appeared in a Victoria’s Secret catalog back in 2011. And even though Neophitou casts the fashion show, she may have no say over who appears in the catalog.
Still, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Upton walking in the show this year. Upton’s star is on the rise (see: her multiple Vogue covers and legions of adoring fans). Upton really seems like a no-brainer for the brand.
We’d love to see her in an over-the-top themed costume at this year’s Victoria’s Secret runway. Kiss and make up, Sophia and Kate!
