Kate Upton Dougied her way to viral fame and today, she's put us all in a trance Cat Daddying in an itsy bitsy bikini for Terry TV. *Sigh* But she isn't the only fashion player who likes to shake her rump.

Turns out the fashion set loves nothing more than shimmying in Stella McCartney or cha-chaing the night away in Chanel. Need proof? Here are some fashion people who love to tear up the dance floor.

Who can forget Kate Moss dancing/writhing in the White Stripes' " I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" video. It might not be choreographed dancing but it's so sexy that who even cares.

Coco Rocha was a dancer before she was a model. But her modeling work has put those Irish dance skills to good work. Like in this ad for Longchamp. She also epically Irish step danced down the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier.

Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo

In a video for W, Contibuting Fashion Editor Giovanna Battaglia said she got her big break with Vogue Italia when she was dancing in a nightclub with Anna Dello Russo. Says Battaglia, "[Anna] was like, hey, I'm doing a shoot with Italian Vogue tomorrow do you wanna come?" Um, can Giovanna take us to some of the clubs she frequents? We would love to jam with ADR!

Anna Dello Russo

Battaglia's dancing partner, Anna Dello Russo, busted a move for photographers during Paris Fashion Week back in October. Get it, girl!

Naomi Campbell on Ballando con le Stelle, what we assume is the Italian version of DWTS. Maybe she'll do more dancing on her new reality show.

Tyra Banks in Coyote Ugly

We've seen Tyra 'Booty Tooch' on America's Next Top Model and rock out like a Bollywood star on The Tyra Banks Show, but we will always remember her sweet moves in 2000's feature film, Coyote Ugly. Here she is doing her "belly dance shimmy, girl," if that's what she wants to call it.

Anna Wintour

We never thought we'd see the day when Anna Wintour busted a move, much less with hip-hop Mogul Diddy. But it happened at 2010's Met Gala after party, and there's photographic proof. In addition to Biggie Smalls and the phrase "No Bitchassness," this is another thing we for which we can thank Sean Coombs.

Lanvin's Fall 2011 Campaign Video

Possibly one of the best campaign videos ever was for Lanvin's Fall 2011 collection, where Karen Elson (who's not a bad dancer at all!), Raquel Zimmermann, Lowell Tautchin and Milo Spijkers got their dance on to Pitbull's I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho). At the end, the ever-adorable Alber Elbaz pushes through to show those models how a professional shakes it. It never gets old!

Jessica Biel, Diane Von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, and Francisco Costa

Jessica Biel explored several genres of dance with fashion's most noted designers for a spread in Harper's Bazaar. From ballet with Vera Wang, to cutting a rug '20s style doing the Charleston with Diane Von Furstenberg, all we really can say is we wish we were Jessica Biel.

Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Kate Moss

TLC got this footage of supermodels Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and Naomi Campbell shaking their respective rumps. Clearly Ms. Campbell did not inherit the Jamaican sense of rhythm from her parents. But she can sure whip a mean weave!

Karlie Kloss and Derek Blasberg

As if you needed a reason to love Karlie Kloss any more, the model divulged to Daily Front Row at the Cartier Juste un Clou event that she and Derek Blasberg "have been known to get down. He's the best dancer I know, so I just follow his lead. I often learn new moves from him." Ooh, get it! We want to see a dance off between these two like, right now.

Karlie is also a trained ballerina and you can see her show off her porte-bras for New York Magazine when she was just 15 here (interviewed by our current contributor Kendall Herbst).
