Kate Upton Branded “Too American” by Agency

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models,

Kate UptonKate Upton was told she was "too American" to be a model.

The curvy beauty - who is now one of the most recognizable pin-ups in the world - was outraged when she was initially rejected from a major agency who assumed she would be too ''lazy'' because of her nationality.

"I'm not going to name names, but one agency told me, 'You're too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.' I was so offended! I've never been so offended! I was like, 'You know that you're in America, right?' And it wasn't 'American models - it was 'American women are lazy,' period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!" she revealed.

Kate, 21, headed straight to International Management Group - which is home to supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss - after the shocking rejection, and was signed on the spot.

Kate Upton for Victoria’s Secret?

Kate Upton in Victoria's SecretUPDATE: Kate Upton claims that Victoria's Secret used this 2011 image of her without her permission.

Is Kate Upton on her way to earning a pair of Victoria's Secret angel wings?

A leaked page from the upcoming lingerie giant's catalog reveals that the 20 year-old model - who has graced the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated - has been recruited to sell their famous undergarments.

Accepting the gig comes as a little bit of shock, considering that the casting director for the company's televised runway show, Sophia Neophitou, had previously stated that she would never have Upton on her catwalk: "She is too obvious. She’s like a page three girl. She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."

Is this catalog gig a step towards forgiving Ms. Neophitou now that she has garnered clout in the fashion community (keep in mind that Anna Wintour picked her over current fashion darling and newly-appointed VS Angel Karlie Kloss)? I guess we'll just have to see if her famous curves appear in next year's extravagant runway show.
