From the hours spent surrounded by the most beautiful and stylish clothes on the planet, models tend to have a killer sense of style both on and off the runway. So we wondered: Is style a skill learned on the job or are models just genetically predisposed to not only look better than the general population, but dress better too?
When we chatted with guest editor and model Kate Upton
, we convinced her to give up her secrets and she was nice enough to dish. When Kate started modeling, she confesses, she had no idea how to dress! Now, since becoming a model, her style has changed dramatically. She says: Growing up, I went to a private school so I always just wore uniforms. Since starting modeling, it's completely changed. From khakis and polos to lots of different fun things...You get thrown out to the world and are like 'What, what am I supposed to wear?'
As private school gals ourselves, we can totally relate! Did you have a style-hindering uniform growing up? Check out Kate Upton's lookbooks on StyleBistro:
