Kate Upton set to be the new body of Victoria's Secret

She's been labelled as the archetypal pin-up girl.

The curvaceous blonde is modelling for the lingerie brand despite them calling her a page 3 girl

The top model  has delighted the fashion set, appearing on several Sports Illustrated covers and gracing the front of magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Cosmopolitan.

One company not taken with the model's beauty was luxury lingerie brand Victoria's Secret, who dubbed her "too obvious".

The label's model booker, Sophia Neophitou, previously told the New York Times:  “She’s like a Page 3 girl... She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”

It appears Kate doesn't hold a grudge, as an image obtained by Buzzfeed shows the 20-year-old wearing a black Body by Victoria bra in a campaign for the underwear brand.

The star throws the camera a sultry glance, with her hair in loose, tousled waves.

Victoria's Secret and Kate must have buried the hatchet, as the model previously hit back at Sophia following the scathing remarks.

"I’m doing fine in my career, I don't need to walk down their runway so it's all good. She can think that and I can think whatever I want about her," she vented.

It's certainly true that Kate doesn't need any help when it comes to modelling right now.

The beauty has bagged herself the front cover of Vogue's June issue, where she looks stunning in a colourful swimsuit and an elegant up-do.
