Kate Upton chosen as new face of Sam Edelman
'Curvy' model Kate Upton has landed a new role as the face of US shoe brand Sam Edelman, appearing in a series of sultry images wearing nothing but some rather alluring lingerie - and the shoes! Check out the campaign imagery below, which shows the unfathomably gorgeous Kate in a series of poses that we fear in some cases may just eclipse any interest in the footwear...
Many have expressed surprise that a model with a body as gorgeous and downright distracting as Kate's would land a role modelling shoes, but her physique was exactly what Sam Edelman wanted: she was chosen 'because she isn't stick thin' according to the man behind the campaign, David Lipton. 'She's beautiful and all-American'.
These are certainly attributes that suit the ethos of the New York based label, available to buy online here in the UK at My-Wardrobe and Matches Fashion. Kate works it to the max in the series of images, which show her nestling in a sea of shoes, lounging on a chaise longue and straddling an open window looking out on to the night skyline.
