Model Crush Monday – Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition’s 2017 Cover Star Kate Upton!

Just when February could use a beautiful model in a striking bikini, often on an exotic beach, Sports Illustrated comes through with their annual Swimsuit Edition with the new crop of supermodels amazing female athletes, brightening the winter blues and reminding us that summer will be here soon enough.  Appearing on her third cover – and on three cover versions for 2017, is the rule-breaking, game-changing Kate Upton.

Kate first appeared as a rookie in the 2011 edition and sky-rocketed right on to the cover of the 2012 edition, curves and all, which had the impact of an earthquake on the modeling industry.  Kate’s appearance on the 2012 cover began an industry-wide conversation about body-acceptance and womanly curves, opening the doors for other models who were anything but stick-straight, for both fashion and beauty. 

At only twenty-four years old, Kate has gone from a local, commercial Miami model to fronting campaigns for Guess!, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, David Yurman and Sam Edelman, to starring as the heroine in the mobile app for Game Of War: Fire Age.  After appearing in several movies, including The Three Stooges, and alongside Cameron Diaz in The Other Woman, Kate has two new movies coming out this year, The Disaster Artist and The Layover.

What size IS sexy??  Size is clearly irrelevant in that conversation when you consider women like Kate.  Kudos Sports Illustrated for proving that beauty and sex appeal comes in all shapes and sizes!

Model Crush Monday – All-American Karlie Kloss

There are not too many models in the stratosphere of mid-western beauty Karlie Kloss.  And not just because she has reached the pinnacle of the modeling industry, but literally – Karlie is 6’2” – without heels.  Those legs go on for days - and days! At age 24, Karlie has already been modeling for a decade and has accomplished everything from high-end editorials, countless turns on the runway, cosmetic contracts, to fronting campaigns worldwide. 

Karlie is a long-time favorite of editors, photographers, and creative directors for her ability to move gracefully and fluidly, creating images that are striking and memorable.  She understands exactly what will work for her long lines, for which credits her many years of ballet training.  None of this would matter if she didn’t have her classic bone structure and uniquely arched eyebrows.  Just as she is able to create a story with her movements, she is just as animated with her expressions, making her chameleon-like, and a true original.  

Meeting Taylor Swift for the first while she performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2013 while Karlie strutted the runway, began a friendship between the two that sets the bar for #squadgoals.  Two like-minded beauties with brains and talent – BFF’s forever. 

Using her influence to benefit others, Karlie, an avid baker, sells Karlie’s Kookies where a portion of the proceeds supports FEED Projects to donate meals to starving children worldwide - #loveher!  A passionate coder, she has also created a scholarship program for young girls to encourage them to learn computer programming and software engineering called Kode With Karlie. 

It’s not hard to see Karlie Kloss as the whole package, living and embodying the American dream, making her our #dreamgirl.
