Remember when there weren’t a zillion Instagram models and old media would pick and choose which girls you had to adore. That sh*t started to go out like the trash around the same time Kate Upton blew up with her sexy dance video.
Back in 2015 Kate Upton was an upcoming perky blonde model with amazing boobs who was tapped as the next ‘it’ girl. When infamous photographer Terry Richardson (who couldn’t exist in this “me too” era) released her cat daddy dancing video she skyrocketed into the public’s consciousness.
Since then Katherine Elizabeth Upton has gained more fame, fortune, and a shit ton of competition.
She went from Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year to the cover model for the 2012, 2013 and 2017 issues. She was also the subject of the 100th-anniversary Vanity Fair cover. We wonder what she thinks about the rise of the Instagram model in today’s age? She probably doesn’t care since she’s already secured her spot as one of the most beautiful women of her generation.
