High neckline, full length gown, dark eyebrows, hair pulled back—you may not recognise this normally bikini-clad, buxom blonde swimsuit model.Ladies and gentleman, I present to you … Kate Upton with clothes on!
Upton, whose latest project is starring in a “Cat Daddy” dance video, traded in her famous red swimsuit for a Michael Kors gown to attend last night’s Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
As we told you last week, Upton was not, in fact, invited to the event, but instead had to write Anna WIntour a personal check for $25,000 to attend the fashionable fete.
But what was supposed to be Upton’s entrée into the fashion world fell flat and today critics are telling the model to, on second thought, keep her clothes off.
Perez Hilton wrote that Upton’s gown “did everything to her body, except flatter her figure.”
And in a poll conducted by the International Business Times‘ Fashion & Life section, 58 per cent of voters said of Upton’s look, “Hated it! She looks better in a bikini.” Only four-per cent loved it, the rest were “meh.”
And given our past anti-Upton feelings we never thought we would say this, but … we agree—take it off, Kate!
