Kate Upton, a Sports Illustrated supermodel known for her bikini photos -- and Carl's Jr. commercial -- has won the 2013 Model of the Year Award.
The 21-year-old Michigan native will receive the honor at the 10th annual Style Awards on Sept. 4, an event that formally launches Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Nichole Richie is hosting the ceremony, which will feature a performance from Ariana Grande.
Upton also received another honor lately -- she graces the October 2013 cover of Vanity Fair, which celebrates its 100th anniversary. The supermodel was photographed by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.
