The 20-year-old model and actress born in Michigan and raised in Florida got her start in modeling at the age of 15. Kate went on to become Sports Illustrated's 'Rookie of the Year' in 2011 and eventually graced the cover of this year's Swimsuit Issue.

In the past year, she's appeared in the magazines DT, Esquire (who called her the Woman of Summer 2011), Harper's Bazaar alongside comedian Aziz Ansari, Muse (nude), V, Remix, Complex, GQ (twice - once in August 2011 and again for their July 2012 issue) and most recently for Vogue.

Upton has been featured in ads and promotional spots for Beach Bunny swimwear, SkullCandy earbuds, DirecTV, the MLB 2k12 video game, Zoo York, Bare Necessities lingerie, Lunaire lingerie, Jenna Leigh lingerie, Guess, and Carl's Jr. / Hardee's in which she made sweet mouth love to a hot, juicy burger.

Somehow mainstream media has failed to grasp the gravity of Kate's captivation, but anytime a pic or video is uploaded online, it spreads like wildfire. The viral vixen will be a staple of the global landscape for decades to come.
