Kate Upton may be the swimsuit model of the moment, but based off of what the Victoria's Secret's casting director for its annual runway show has said, she won't be getting her wings anytime soon.

"'We would never use' Ms. Upton for a Victoria's Secret show," Sophia Neophitou told The New York Times last week in an article posted on Monday, adding that the choice would be "too obvious."

While Upton's admirers and fans may beg to differ (the 19-year-old has modeled for the lingerie retailer before), Neophitou details why the 5-foot-10 beauty wouldn't be able to hang with Victoria's Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel during the nationally televised event.

"She's like a Page 3 girl," Neophitou continued, referencing the spread of scantily clad women that runs in the British newspaper The Sun. "She's like a footballer's wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."
