Do you want to know what type of women get casted on the Victoria’s Secret runway? Clue: not Kate Upton.
Just because 19-year-old Kate Upton is tall, beautiful, and voluptuous doesn’t mean she can walk the fashion runways of the giant lingerie company. To the covers of the Sports Illustrated magazine, her 36-25-34 vital stats is just perfect. But Victoria’s Secret Casting Director Sophia Neophitou has a different opinion:
“We would never use Kate Upton. She is too obvious. 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.”
So is there a body and face deemed classy? And a body and face deemed lewd? Since when did these standards come to exist?
By “too obvious”, Ms. Neophitou is probably talking about how apparent Kate Upton’s plastic surgeries are. Well, too much body alteration might be relatable, but not that marketable anymore.
Bu then again, you can never please everybody…
