Kate Upton – David Yurman
New York–Model Kate Upton, who just graced back-to-back covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, is swapping out her string bikinis for David Yurman’s classic cable designs.
Upton is one of four women tapped by the designer for its fall 2013 advertising campaign, “Beauty in Contrast.”
The idea behind the campaign is to highlight how “diverse elements coexist in a delicate balance,” a theme chosen because of the diversity in Yurman’s designs, both his classic pieces and those from the fall 2013 collection.
The campaign features elegant and refined pieces along with more earthy and artisanal designs, new collections coupled with iconic favorites, and designs that are heavier alongside more minimal pieces.
To this end, the brand said it selected four very different women as the models for Beauty in Contrast.
Upton, who is blonde and blue-eyed and was raised in Florida, represents the all-American girl while Anais Mali, a French model whose mother is from Chad and whose father is Polish, has a global sophistication.
