Right now Kate Upton is considered the hottest woman in the world; and perhaps rightfully so. Since the 19-year-old Michigan native and Wolverines fan was named the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl, the entire media has been buzzing over, wanting to know more about here…like if her boobs are real or not.
Upton has been making a huge splash on the internet since last year, when she debuted as a rookie in SI. Making us wonder, which rookie of the 2012 SI swimsuit class will emerge as the next Kate Upton.
Check out Crystal Renn, and see if she fits the bill.
In 2011, Crystal Renn became the face of the spring/summer campaign for Jimmy Chooand the spring/summer MR Denim Collection by Marina Rinaldi, a plus-size jeans collection.
Renn started her modeling career in high fashion at the age of 14 after being spotted by a professional scout in her hometown in Clinton, Mississippi.
Renn was told she would need to lose almost a third of her total body weight if she wanted to become a model. Later, after years of anorexia nervosa, Renn reassessed her diet and exercise habits. After gaining 70 pounds (32 kg) and re-emerging as a U.S. size 12, she was re-marketed by her agents as a plus-size model. Renn has authored a book, Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves, about her experiences in the fashion industry in relation to her several body type transformations.
Renn’s first book, Hungry, was co-authored by Marjorie Ingall and released on September 8, 2009.During an on-camera interview at an Australian industry functionRenn’s agent Gary Dakin noted that her total income would now be “close to 7 figures”.
