Bye-bye, bikini: Kate Upton made her modestly-dressed NYFW debut at Michael Kors

No, Kate Upton doesn’t just model in bikinis.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue favorite made her New York Fashion Week debut at the Michael Kors spring 2018 show on Wednesday, closing the show in a little black knotted dress topped with a sequined jacket.

Like many of the other models in the show, Kors completed Upton’s look with simple flip-flops, keeping her makeup simple and sweeping her hair back.

The look was a stark contrast to the bandage dresses Upton favors for her public events — and the barely-there swimsuits she’s modeled in Sports Illustrated.

Upton walked in the show alongside fashion-favorite celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid, who modeled more formal sequined gowns.

“Don’t miss Kate Upton’s NYFW debut, closing our Spring 2018 Michael Kors Collection show!” Kors tweeted before the show started, sharing a behind-the-scenes picture of a makeup artist touching up Upton’s look.

The Michael Kors show wasn’t Upton’s only showing this season. The model also starred in Zac Posen’s spring 2018 lookbook, which the designer presented in lieu of a traditional fashion show, dressing Upton in flowing couture looks.
