Kate Upton has graced the covers of Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair, but the buxom supermodel proved she's far from perfect when she returned from the gym in Paris, France, on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Wearing no makeup, the 21-year-old Michigan native was all smiles post-workout.
Despite a few blemishes, there's no denying that Kate is a stunning woman. After all, the recently crowned Model of the Year just nabbed her third Sports Illustrated cover in two years!
The blond beauty has been making the rounds in the City of Light, sitting front row at Chanel and strutting her stuff in the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week.
The secret to Kate's success is a positive attitude, according to her mom Shelly, a former Texas state tennis champion. "She really is just so enthusiastic about everything. And when she's excited about something, she gives it her best," the model's mom told Allure Sept. 9. "I just am so proud about how she has handled all the pressure that goes along with all the successes that are amazing as well. She seems to take it in stride and doesn't seem to be inhibited at all."
Shelly is especially proud of Kate's refusal to lose weight in a size-obsessed industry. "She really has been such a vibrant person—she leads a well-balanced life, and she wants to eat healthy. We've always eaten healthy as a family growing up," she shared. "And she's definitely always known what she wanted."
