Kate Upton has been named the 2013 Model of the Year
New York Fashion Week starts soon, and to get off on the right foot, the 2013 Model of the Year is going to accept her award. Care to guess who it is? Here's a hint: Who's the only working model you could name off the top of your head these days? That's right, Kate Upton.
The 21-year-old will accept the award at Wednesday night's 10th Annual Style Awards in New York, E! reports. Nicole Richie will be hosting, if that clues you into the guest list. It'll be a pretty big night for Upton, whom we can only hope will perform both the Dougie and the Cat Daddy.
In the last year alone, Upton has marked her second Sports Illustrated cover, the cover of Vogue in America and Brazil, a deal with jewelry store David Yurman and starring with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. She also is the cover girl for Vanity Fair's 100th anniversary issue, which should pretty much silence the fashionistas who somehow say she's too fat to model all by itself.
