Kate Upton, Top Model With The Sparkling Smile

Every decade has its top model. In the '80s, it was Cindy Crawford, in the '90s, Tyra Banks, the '00s, Heidi Klum.
Sure, you will get lots of arguments about those choices, but you have to admit that each model was at least among the elite for that decade.
Well, in the teens so far, that honor appears to fall on the lovely head of one Kate Upton.
Kate looks great in anything, mind you, but leather seems to suit her quite nicely.
Kate is famous for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Upton was named Rookie of the Year - quite a prestigious title - for her first appearance in 2011.
Kate Upton then became the cover model for the 2012, 2013 and 2017 issues.
Kate also has tried her hand at acting. She made a big impression in "Tower Heist" (2011) and "The Other Woman" (2014), among other films.
Kate began dating Major League Baseball pitcher Justin Verlander in early 2014. Verlander proposed to Kate right before the 2017 baseball season. Justin's team, the Houston Astros, went on to win the World Series after a terrible year for the city of Houston, which experienced a devastating hurricane. Verlander proposed to Upton with a ring he custom-designed with jeweler Anita Ko.

The happy couple wed shortly after the end of the Series in Italy. Upton sported a long-sleeved lace white gown with a long white veil and carried a bouquet of peach, light pink and ivory flowers, and the outdoor ceremony was decorated with similar floral arrangements.
Kate Upton is inspirational to many women because she has climbed to the top of the modelling world without having the typical stick-thin physique of Victoria's Secret models. However, there are many opportunities for curvy models, and Kate Upton is showing the way!
