Curves allowed! Voluptuous Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton takes to the catwalk at Mexico City Fashion Week
The catwalk at Paris Fashion Week is filled with many stick thin models at the moment, with hardly a curvy figure in sight.
And while anything above a size zero may not be welcome at other Fashion Week location, Mexico City is a different story.
Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton has strutted her famous figure down the catwalk overnight, showing off her killer curves in an array of sultry looks.

The stunning 19-year-old, who has found overnight fame after gracing the cover of the coveted Swimsuit Issue, looked worlds away from the malnourished models we are used to seeing.
Kate showed off her jaw-dropping cleavage in a plunging orange gown that set off her golden tan and Brigitte Bardot locks.

While Miss Upton's healthy curves may not be runway-ready sample size, head of IMG Models Ivan Bart recently hailed her as 'bigger than fashion'.
Kate's new fame has come with a healthy attitude to her body. Shortly after being crowned this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl, she told the NY Post: ''I never deprive myself. If I’m craving something once a week, then I’ll go have it… Ice cream or whatever, I just eat the foods I like.'
'I have to give credit to my trainer,' she added. 'He definitely kept me motivated in staying in shape… I’ve always been naturally curvy, but of course I had to get used to being in the public eye'.

Down to earth: A friend recently said of Kate, 'She’s not your typical model… She will eat anything. She’s not very affected'
Her training sessions allowed the model to throw herself into her recent film shoot for the new Carl's Junior ad campaign with aplomb.
The model writhes on a car scantily clad as she devours one of the restaurant's burgers.
A friend of the model's revealed that Miss Upton has succumbed to the pressure of the industry.
'She’s not your typical model,' the friend told the NY Post. 'She will eat anything. She’s not assuming. She’s not into herself. She’s not very affected.'
