Ever wonder what Kate Upton looked like when she was the age of a high schooler? Spoiler alert: Almost the same.
The 22-year-old blonde bombshell and Sports Illustrated and Victoria's Secret catalogue supermodel has often showcased her curvy figure and bright smile in racy photo shoots and has drawn comparisons to sex icon Marilyn Monroe. From the looks of newly released fashion pics, Upton was just as beautiful at age 15, when she started modeling and when she was, as Britney Spears would say, "not a girl, not yet a woman."
The images, taken by fashion photographer Steven Burton during a 2008 photo shoot, show Upton wearing a variety of playful and relatively modest outfits. Among them—a multi-colored, striped sweater and black low-rise jeans that shows off her midriff, paired with a four-toned newsboy cap (see above), as well as menswear and a silver sequined sheath dress (see more photos of 15-year-old Upton here)
