Kate Upton is furious that Victoria’s Secret has used photos of her from 2011 in a new lingerie catalog after a booker at the brand was once quoted as saying, “We would never use Kate.”
A source tells the New York Post's Page Six that Upton is also unhappy that VS never gave her a heads-up they were using the pictures now. The VS photos of Upton in a black bra surfaced yesterday, and buzz spread that the blond babe could be the next Angel, joining Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
But, “The pictures are from 2011,” sniffed a source. “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret, and they didn’t contact her before they used these images.”
The pics of Upton can be found in a new catalog, even though Sophia Neophitou, a model booker for VS, told the New York Times last year: “We would never use Kate . . . 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.”
Upton has since become one of the world’s top models gracing the Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue twice and Vogue.
