and Miley Cyrus calls Marc Jacobs her fashion mentor.

Kate Upton Models Hot Pockets: The makers of Hot Pockets, the decidedly unsexy microwavable food product, have recruited Kate Upton to make their pockets even hotter. Upon appears in the new promotional video that the Nestlé, the company behind the frozen food product, debuted on Monday. In the clip, Upton sings a piano duet with Snoop Dogg, flies in a Hot Pockets spaceship, and enters a psychedelic drug dreamscape. The model also manages to actually eat the snack in a hilarious, pseudo-pornographic slow motion scene. [Vanity Fair]
