The Victoria’s Secret casting director called Upton “too obvious” and “too blonde” (really?), before saying she’d never (yes, never) be used for a Victoria’s Secret show, and the final nail in the coffin? That Upton was like a “footballer’s wife,” with a face that “anybody can go out and buy.”
Wow, okay, we get it; you seriously don’t like her.
Upton has been subject to a great deal of speculation since her popularity was mostly gained through, well, the internet. Who knew? And what other way could someone come from of obscurity to nail one of the most coveted modeling gigs ever: the cover of Sports Illustrated?
Now hailed as the “Jayne Mansfield of the Internet” and a “model celebrity,” Upton can now add Esquire to her growing list of modeling gigs. Hm, have to wonder if Neophitou will eventually have to eat her words.
