It’s not just Kate Upton’s famous curves that landed her the new Sam Edelman Campaign. The Sports Illustrated beauty was approached by the lifestyle brand after being spotted wearing a pair of the designer’s equestrian-style boots. And Sam Edelman himself tells us why she’s a perfect fit for the label. “Kate epitomizes the American woman and the new supermodel,” he says. “She’s glamorous, yet approachable.”;
For the new ads, photographer Sebastian Faena and stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele worked to recreate the iconic imagery of the silver screen by capturing Kate in a series black-and-white Old Hollywood-style stills and vignettes. Kate, who shows off her sultry side in the shoot says, “I’ve loved Sam Edelman shoes for a long time, so shooting the ad campaign was a lot of fun for me.”;
The new ads are expected to roll out over the next six months, but we have your first look here in the video below!
