Kate Upton will receive the 2013 Model of the Year award at the 10th Annual Style Awards in New York City on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
The awards ceremony, which will be hosted by Nicole Richie, marks the beginning of New York Fashion Week where fashion's elite gather to show off their work, and the newest trends for spring and fall next year.
Everyone's favorite blonde bombshell's body of work speaks for its. Upton has graced the covers of Sports Illustrated, Vogue, Elle and that just names a few. Iconic photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Terry Richardson, in which the blue-eye 21-year-old's behind-the-scene video of her photo shoot showcases her natural charm and Cat Daddy dance skills (video below), have photographed the supermodel.
Upton seems like a no-brainer choice for the Model of the Year award, as no model has generated attention like her since Gisele Bündchen. Upton is also featured on the cover of the October issue of Vanity Fair, which is also a special anniversary addition as the magazine celebrates its 100th year in circulation.
