Kate Upton Missing From Victoria’s Secret 'Magical' Fashion Show Lineup
Some details from the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Missing from the model list is Kate Upton. Maybe casting director Sophia Neophitou will stick to her word. In February she was quoted saying:
“We would never use” Ms. Upton for a Victoria’s Secret show, Ms. Neophitou said by telephone last week from London. And, while Ms. Upton has, in fact, modeled on occasion for the company’s catalog, her look, said Ms. Neophitou, is “too obvious” to be featured in what has become the most widely viewed runway show in the world.
“She’s like a Page 3 girl,” Ms. Neophitou said, referring to the scantily clad voluptuous women featured in The Sun, a London tabloid. “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.”
That was February though. Since then Upton has landed in Vogue US, & Vogue Italia amongst other magazines, so we'll see if Sophia holds firm, or if she surprises us.
