As the saying goes, no two snowflakes are alike, yet supermodel Kate Upton has met her busty match—a 22-year-old Russian student who goes only by the name Ania. The blonde bombshell tweeted a photo of herself topless and barely covered by the same snowy white fur-trimmed ski jacket as the two-time Sports Illustrated cover model did in her sizzling cover that ran last month.
“I’ve been told I look like her in the past, but when the SI issue came out and she was wearing the same jacket that is hanging in my closet, I knew it had to be done,” Ania said in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
Since Ania’s tweet last week, the Twitterverse has gone aflutter, and even Upton retweeted the image, with a concise caption: “Amazing.” The Moscow beauty has also seen an uptick in her Twitter followers, as she jumped from 78 before Upton’s retweet to over 3,000 now. Her previous Twitter profile jokingly said, “Mail order bride in training,” but as her popularity soared, so did the requests for marriage that rolled in, and fans were taking her seriously. Ania briefly protected her tweets due to the overwhelming response, but her Twitter is now back up and running again, and her bio has been changed to say, “Not actually a mail order bride.”
Ania, who also cites Natalia Vodianova as a favorite model, said of her idol Upton, “I’ve been a fan for a while; it’s relieving to see someone challenge the stereotype of rail-thin models.”
Perhaps a new meme is brewing, as Mentality Magazine tweeted that copying Upton’s cover photo could be called “Kateing” or “Uptoning.”
