Model Kate Upton scored a deal to be the new face of Accessorize and its global campaign, according to The Huffington Post.
In ads for its retailer's spring/summer 2013 season, the 20-year-old model wears Accessorize jewelry and handbags, posing in dresses and bikinis. Past accessorize campaign models include Bar Rafaeli and Claudia Schiffer. The campaign ad was released on Monday on the Late Show with David Letterman.
Shot by famous photographer Josh Olins, the ad was set in Barbados and the model walks and lays on the beach sporting pieces from the United Kingdom brand. Talking about her own preference when it comes to jewelry, Upton said "There are no rules! If your outfit allows it, then more is more. I always love rings, and Accessorize has the best rings for everyday wear."
It was recently announced that Upton will grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which will mark the publication's 50th anniversary. Upton is only the ninth model to appear on the coveted front page twice and only the fifth to be used in back-to-back years. The 2013 issue is expected to outperform the Michigan native's 2012 issue.
Earlier in 2013 Upton was featured in a commerical that debuted during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. In the advertisement for Mercedes-Benz, the model convinced a group of men in football jerseys to wash the all-new CLA for her.
Upton is reportedly dating MLB Detroit Tigers player Justin Verlander. They met while shooting a video game commercial in February 2012 and were spotted spending New Year's together at the Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas.
