One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Ladies and gents, meet your Model of the Year!
Kate Upton won big at the Style Awards in New York last night, but her modeling career wasn’t the only thing that was winning!
The 21-year-old blonde bombshell strut her stuff down the red carpet wearing a black Altuzarra dress with seksi mesh and zipper detailing that accentuated all the right parts.
Kate paired the number with maroon Jimmy Choo pumps, a black Jimmy Choo clutch, and some obligatory David Yurman jewels.
What do you expect? She's the face of the brand!
Flawless makeup and large bouncy curls completed Kate's understated ensem.
