People often say that women usually only hate other women so much because they’re insecure (I will not deny that this is true, pretty bitches get a lot of hate), and lately it seems like Kate Upton is getting a lot of that pretty girl hate. The 21-year-old bombshell has recently been hated on by Kanye West (but who hasn’t?), the chick who picks the outfits for Victoria’s Secret models, and now, former supermodel, Carol Alt.
It seems like most people in the world of high fashion thinks the busty model is, essentially, boring as fuck and not classy enough to be a model, nor do they see what the big deal about her is. Clearly, none of these people have talked to any pubescent boys recently.
First, let’s start with Kanye, who you’d think would be more supportive of a woman who is mostly just famous for her luscious curves.
A few months back, Kate posed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine done up like Marilyn Monroe, which really pissed Kanye off. Kanye slammed Vanity Fair’s choice and said:
[Vanity Fair] want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe.
I know I’ve made this joke before, but like Gretchen Wiener with “fetch”, Kanye really needs to stop trying to make Kim Kardashian happen. I don’t see how either of these ladies is the next Marilyn (do either of them have an ounce of acting talent? Because Marilyn actually did), but I totally get more Marilyn vibes from Kate.
Kanye defended his statement by saying that Marilyn was controversial and Kate isn’t. At all. She’s basically like a big breasted scoop of vanilla ice cream, you know? But it’s not just Kanye that’s throwing some shade at Kate, the fashion industry itself is throwing her some Sophia Loren side eye at Kate’s Jayne Mansfield chi-chis.
Editor of 10 magazine and Victoria’s Secret stylist Sophia Neophitou recently said she’d never hire someone like Upton to model for Victoria’s Secret and then threw out this major diss:
She’s like a Page 3 girl. 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.
In case you don’t know what a Page 3 girl is (it’s a London thing), here is an example:
Basically, they’re the kind of bitches that Hugh Hefner and Charlie Sheen would date, and, as sexy as I find Kate Upton, I kind of get the comparison. However, I think a lot of Victoria’s Secret models would probably look like that if they gained like 20lbs. Let’s be real about Neophitou’s diss: she’d totally put Kate in a VS show if that fat bitch lost some weight, am I right? (I hate to feel a need to point out my sarcasm here, but some people are slow).
However, the biggest Kate hate comes from former mega supermodel, Carol Alt. Carol said:
I think Kate is a product of great media hype. Without Sports Illustrated, I’m not sure she would’ve made it in the industry as a high fashion model. Because she is more of a large size model. And even if I’ve seen her in person, and I don’t think she’s in any way fat or overweight or anything; she’s just more large-sized than fashion models are.
Just for reference, here is a non-photoshopped picture of Kate Upton:
And these are traditional VS models:
You’re right, Alt, compared to “high fashion” models, Upton is a total lard ass. I mean, she’s definitely at LEAST a size 4. Someone put this girl in fat camp! Kate Upton be all like:
Well, Kate Upton, it looks like you’ll never be a Victoria’s Secret Angel or walk in the runways of Paris. Looks like you’ll have to keep settling for Sports Illustrated covers and being one of the sexiest, most sought after bikini models in the world. Hang in there, girl.
