She's one of today's most sought-after models and this year became a new mom. Kate Upton defines today's taste for something other than rail-thin models and takes her position as role model to heart. Seemingly down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life status, Upton is equal parts girl next door and sex symbol. Whether she's rockin' a bikini on the pages of Sports Illustrated or rocking her newborn to sleep, the Michigan native does it beautifully. Here's more about the model/actress and why fans are head-over-heels for the 5'10" stunner.

Posing Perfectly

Upton is best known for her modeling work. Her gigs are some of the grandest and her face (and figure) have been splashed across the pages of countless magazines. From Guess to Victoria's Secret to David Yurman, the biggest brands choose Upton to represent their goods. As for magazines? Flip through the pages of Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, and others and you're sure to find Upton staring back at you. And the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue catapulted Upton into the stratosphere when she was featured in 2011, '12, '13, and '17. A three-time cover model for the mag, Upton's look evidently sells.
