According to the NYPost the shots, which feature Upton in a black bra, surfaced Tuesday in the back of the new Victoria's Secret catalog prompting many to believe Upton would be joining Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio as the next VS angel. However, a source told the Post that "the pictures are from 2011."
"Kate's not currently contracted to work with Victoria's Secret," says the source, adding that, "they didn’t contact her before they used these images."
Sophia Neophitou, a booker for the lingerie brand was once quoted saying, "we would never use Kate [Upton]."
"She’s like a footballer’s wife," Neophitou said. "With the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."
