Kate Upton Back on the Victoria's Secret Catalogue Books

Kate Upton Returns to Victoria's Secret After Being Called "Too Obvious"

Kate Upton is having the last laugh, and this time it's with Victoria's Secret. The blonde bombshell — currently on the June cover of US Vogue — is back in the pages of the lingerie brand's latest catalogue even after 10 Magazine editor Sophia Neophitou promised they'd never hire her. In February 2012, Neophitou, who also helps to cast the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show lineup, infamously declared they "would never use" Upton in the show because she was "too obvious." But Neophitou didn't stop there. She also said, "She's like a Page 3 girl," referring to the scantily clad women featured in the London tabloid The Sun. "She's like a footballer's wife, with the too-blonde hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy." 
While Upton made her Victoria's Secret catalogue debut in 2011, she hasn't worked with them since. Instead, she has made a name for herself as the face of Sam Edelman, Guess, and of course, as Sports Illustrated's Rookie of the Year in 2011, and then as the Swimsuit Issue's cover model in both 2012 and 2013. Although it seems that Upton doesn't need Neophitou's blessing, we'll have to stay tuned to see if the model makes the brand's 2013 fashion show cut. Could Angel wings be next?
