It may seem like Kate Upton sprang up from nowhere, but actually she’s already seasoned pro at 18! Here’s what she told an interviewer: “I always wanted to try modeling and was scouted at the age of 12, but I was very involved in the American Paint Horse Association horse circuit at that time. My parents really wanted me to wait a few years. At the age of 15, I drove down to Miami (I lived in Melbourne, Fla., at that time) with hopes of finding an agency. I met with an agency at open call and they were interested and signed me that day.
I worked in Miami for lots of international companies and traveled back and forth from Europe constantly.” It sounds like Kate’s had an exciting career already, and it’s just taking off this year. These shots are from the spring line of Bare Necessities Lingerie. Agencies
