This morning, the New York Post reported that Kate Upton was going to the Met Ball. Fine, so are a hundred other models. But the paper said Upton, who gets more famous by the day, whipped out her checkbook and bought her own $25,000 ticket.
Most people do not buy tickets, especially not models. Brands buy tables for hundreds of thousands of dollars and invite their faces and a few celebrities to join them on the big night…which is exactly what happened here. The part that the Post does get right is that Upton will be sat at Michael Kors’ table, along with the designer, Jessica Alba, Hillary Swank and Liu Wen. “We invited her to join us,” a source at Michael Kors said of Upton this afternoon. “The Post story is BS.”
At this rate, we expect to see Upton on a Balenciaga-caliber runway come September.
