If last month Chris Hemsworth was named the Sexiest Man Alive, now, Kate Upton was named People’s Sexiest Woman Alive. The official announcement was made on Thursday night, at the People Magazine Awards. Apparently, Kate was really happy with the achievement.
“This is such an honor to me because sexy to me means someone who’s confident and happy, and that’s the person I always strive to be,” the beautiful star said in her acceptance speech. Kate was not the only star to be awarded at this event. In fact, other female celebrities also received great honors. Among them was Jennifer Aniston, who took home the best actress award.
The event was quite entertaining, including performances of stars such as Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, but also Maroon 5. Gwen Stefani also received an award, for Style Icon of the Year. Among the winners of the night were also Jimmy Fallon, for Talk Show Host of the Year, and Karlie Kloss, for Model of the Year.
The winners of the awards offered by People Magazine are not selected by fans. In fact, they are chosen by editors at People, so the recognition is even more interesting as it comes from specialists, who are aware of everything that happens with celebrities.
Kate Upton is well known for her work with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, being many times featured on the cover of the famous magazine. The star also showed that she can act, starring in the comedy movie, The Other Woman. The successful comedy movie was a hit and Kate was appreciated for her performance. She previously had two other movie roles and four appearances in television.
Kate Upton is currently dating baseball player Justin Verlander. The couple actually started to date back in 2011 and they are still very happy together. Kate has had a huge scandal linked to her name this year, when a series of nude pictures of herself were shared online. The star was a victim, along with many other female celebrities, of the nude photographs hacking scandal that broke during the summer.
