Kate Upton is in this weird position within the modelling industry where she has to act as some kind of lightning rod for every pet peeve anybody has: some people say she isn't really a model because of her swimsuit modelling background; some say she's too fat to be a real model, or else that while she's not model-sized, she's still unrealistically skinny with overly-large boobs and is therefore still a horrible aspirational figure for women. Then there's the criticism that she's 'too pretty', or too much like a guy's ideal vision of what a woman should be.

All of which is sort of strange. The great thing about the modelling industry has always been the diversity between models, and instead of attacking one of the more notable deviations from the norm for not being different enough, maybe we should see this as a step towards gaining true diversity.
