Kate Upton          

Model & Actress Known for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Issues

Kate Upton has quickly made a name for herself in the world of modeling.

Upton attended a casting call in Miami for Elite Model Management in 2008 and was signed by them the same day, and she eventually moved to New York City, where she then signed with IMG Models. Her first campaigns were modeling clothing for Garage and Dooney & Bourke and she then became the face of Guess in 2010.

She was named Rookie of the Year following her first Sports Illustrated appearance in 2011 and was the cover model for the 2012 and 2013 issues, an honor few models receive.

In April 2011, an Internet video of her doing the dougie hip-hop dance at a Los Angeles Clippers game went viral and served to increase her popularity. Guy Trebay of The New York Times observed that this served to illustrate the power of social media to bestow stardom upon a model, which had previously been the domain of top designer runway shows.

In 2011 Upton also began her foray into acting appearing in "Tower Heist" and later "The Three Stooges."

Upton has appeared on the covers of Vogue Italia, British Vogue, CR Fashion Book, Cosmopolitan, French ELLE, GQ, Italian GQ, German GQ, Jalouse, Sunday Times Style, Esquire, The Daily, and Muse Magazine. In 2012 she was ranked the fifth sexiest model by MODELS's and ranked #3 on the American publication of AskMen's Top 99 Women for 2013.

After getting the November 2012 Vogue Italia cover photographed by Steven Meisel and the January 2013 Vogue UK cover, Upton landed the June 2013 Vogue cover by Mario Testino. She was then photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the October 2013 100th anniversary cover of Vanity Fair.

In 2014's "The Other Woman," she stars alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as women with a common interest in revenge.
