No it’s not Kate Upton, but it sure does look like her. This weeks LOWDOWN Babe is 21 year old Charlotte McKinney.

Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, Charlotte was subjected to bullying growing due to her dyslexia. After dropping out of high school at 17, Charlotte pursued a modelling career but struggled to find success with an agency (We know, we couldn’t believe it either).

Like many of our featured LOWDOWN Babe’s, Charlotte concentrated on using Instagram as a modelling portfolio. As Charlotte’s following grew, the agencies began taking notice. It wasn’t before too long that McKinney was snapped up by Wilhelmina Models who also manage the likes of Ruby Rose and Keri Hilson.

Just like Kate Upon, Charlotte has completed campaigns for Guess and was featured in a fast food commercial during the Super Bowl in January 2015 (which went viral). Following in Kate Upton’s footsteps and looking strikingly similar, it’s quite obvious why Charlotte has been dubbed the ‘new Kate Upton’.

To keep up-to-date with Charlotte, follow her on Instagram.
