Kate Upton was catapulted into stardom because of the viral video that showcased her natural curves, and she wasted no opportunity to capitalize on it, having appeared in numerous swimsuit photo and video shoots thereafter to secure her golden spotlight in Hollywood. This is probably why whenever the blonde bombshell covers up, it becomes a bit of a shock to us. The 22-year-old was pictured leaving the Vogue Festival 2015 in London wearing a rather decent outfit.
It’s never easy to pull off an outfit with clashing patterns so we have to hand it to Ms. Upton – the mix of florals and plaid, overlaid with a gorgeous trenchcoat, and dotted with a pair of lace Kurt Geiger pumps gets a nod of approval from us. If anything, though, Kate probably should have pulled her skirt a little lower instead of letting it sit awkwardly under her plentiful bosom. We love that she is open about embracing her body type in a world where twigs become the visual standard for what’s healthy, but the awkward skirt position just cuts her body into weird proportions.

Kate’s choice of lace pumps not only look good with her contrasting pattern outfit, but is also the perfect center point for her coated look. It added some texture and youth to her otherwise glamorous trench look.
