This month marks the 23rd birthday of Kate Upton, the current standard of glamor. Kate Upton’s gorgeous features and onscreen grace have sparked debate if Upton will follow the same footsteps as timeless beauty Marilyn Monroe. To celebrate her birthday, DMG highlights the striking similarities between Kate Upton and Marilyn Monroe.
Issued in June
Although June is the first month of summer, it’s the hottest month of the year. Monroe was born on June 1, 1926, while Upton was born on June 10, 1992.
Ready for My Close Up
Monroe and Upton are the top models of their time. They have been in top magazines such as Vogue, Esquire and Vanity Fair. Both even have similar hourglass figures, with Monroe measuring at 36-24-37 and Upton measuring at 33-25-36.
Lights, Camera, Action!
Upton and Monroe both shined on the silver screen. While Upton have been in films such as TOWER HEIST (2011), THE THREE STOOGES (2012), and THE OTHER WOMAN (2014), Monroe have been in films such as THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955), SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) and THE MISFITS (1961).
Thank You William Morris!
Both can thank the William Morris Agency for their tremendous success. William Morris executive Johnny Hyde helped Monroe land a contract with 20th Century Fox, while William Morris Endeavor has represented Upton since 2014.
Happy Birthday to You
A-list celebrities have inquired both Upton and Monroe to sing at birthday parties. In this photo, Upton sings to Jamie Foxx and Monroe sings to John F. Kennedy.
And we’ll let these photos state the obvious…
Will Kate Upton become a cultural icon like Marilyn Monroe? Only time will tell….
Happy birthday to you both!
