If you didn’t cut out of work early last Friday, you might have seen our report that Kate Upton was on the back cover of the new Victoria’s Secret catalogue (because I’m sure that you don’t have a subscription sent to your house).
Besides the fact that anything Kate Upton is COED news-worthy, it was strange considering the awful things that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show director had said about everyone’s favorite blonde–calling her “too obvious,” and looking too much like a “footballer’s wife.
Apparently we weren’t the only ones to be surprised as Kate had no idea they were going to be using her likeness to sell underwear. Again.
According to a source, “Kate’s not currently contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret.” Which means that the photo in question was from their shoot back in 2011. More than likely, VS bought the rights to the photos which entitles them to use them whenever they want.
Of course, using Kate’s rack to sell underwear after they trash her isn’t very classy. But that’s the way the world turns.
For what it’s worth, my guess is that VS is going to remain very kind to Kate in the future.
