Victoria’s Secret signs curvy new Angel

Lingerie label Victoria’s Secret has signed curvy new angel Kate Upton, just weeks after it attracted criticism for the ultra skinny appearance of model Candice Swanpoel at a swimwear launch.

Upton, an 18 year old university student, first gained notice when she appeared in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

She has also featured as a 2010/11 face of Guess and modelled for swimwear brand Beach Bunny.

A former horseback rider and winner of five world equestrian titles, Upton achieved minor celebrity status after a video of her on YouTube, dancing at a Dodgers game in LA to ‘Teach Me How to Dougie by Cali’, received over 368,000 hits.
