Jessica White has nothing but praise for Kate Upton.
The 29-year-old supermodel caught up with E! News exclusively on the set of the new E! series The Fabulist.
"I love Kate," White revealed on Thursday about the Sports Illustrated cover girl. "I worked with Kate when she first started out, and her personality, energy and spirit is still the same as it was from day one. I think she deserves it all!"
White thinks that people are drawn the 21-year-old blond beauty's "real" body and look.
"She is bringing back being curvaceous and what real women look like," White explains. "On top of her body being real, her face is extraordinary beautiful. People can sense when something is real and fake about a person. Kate is all real and I love her and adore her."
Upton was named the new face of Express and hosted the spring runway show at The Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach on Thursday. Upton is the first celebrity spokesperson to appear for the American fashion retailer in the past decade.
In addition to Express, Upton is also the face of Sam Edelman's digital and print advertising campaign.
