Kate Upton In Altuzarra – 2013 Style Awards

Kate Upton In Altuzarra - 2013 Style Awards

Gisele Bündchen might have the title for highest-paid model of the year, but Kate Upton took home the award for Model of the Year at the 10th annual Style Awards, held at the Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The model kept in line with the apparent black dress code at the event wearing a super-sexy Altuzarra ‘Walker’ fitted jersey v-neck three-quarter-sleeve dress with a gunmetal-tone asymmetrical zip and a mesh panel in the skirt.

Her dress was a perfect combination of sophisticated and sexy – a rarity for the model who usually veers towards overtly sexy dresses most of the time.

She paired it with a pair of deep-maroon Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pointed-toe pumps for a pop of colour, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Ciggy’ clutch, and David Yurman jewels, which should come as no surprise considering she is the latest star of their advertising campaign.

Natural waves completed her simple and gorgeous look.

    She can come wrapped in gold leaves and I will keep finding her uber common\boring\cheap.
    Yes, yes, she is undeniably pretty but has NO charisma whatsoever.

  • Prudence

    …..really?? Of all the people to choose from it goes to her? I really dont get it. Fashion seems to have fully embraced her now which I have no idea where that came from. I love her and her body and I totally enjoy seeing her shape in high fashion magazine but she is no Joan Smalls! No one deserves that award more than Joans imo.

    • KatieKate

      Cosign that.

  • Pedro

    For me this “model” always scream The Real Housewives

    • Iva

      +1 ITA 🙂

  • Christine

    She still looks cheap to me

    • Yeliz


  • dee

    I think she looks pretty good. Nice and classy.

  • Alina

    Average look.
    On the other hand, how did she get that award? 😐

    • i think we all need to know the answer to that question

        Terribly overrated in my opinion.

        • Jazz

          +2 I literally was wondering if I missed something lol

  • Iva

    She looks pretty good here but I must admit that I don’t get this whole ‘Kate Upton obsession’.
    Even here – she look 10 years older than her real age. She has big b…, tiny legs and almost no waist. Yes, her face is pretty but not as Miranda Kerr’s or RHW’s. I just don’t get it.

  • Laura

    The zippers are what elevates this from boring LBD but the lines the zipper is supposed to be making is lost because her chest is too big for that dress. This girl needs a stylist and when she finds one i hope she gives her number to Christina Hendricks.

      • amy

        preach!! fashion folks seem to like her enough to put her in their mag. but no one has the guts to tell her that she needs a stylist asap. She looks mumsy even with that body

        • KatieKate

          Totally. I never think she looks good, which is criminal considering what she has to work with.
