Kate Upton has won the award for the 2013 Model of The Year!

Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, and Cara Delevingne were also reportedly in the running for the coveted title.

But aside from her looks, it was Kate's "outspoken nature [that] ultimately secured her the coveted title:"

"'People deal with models like they are children,' Upton told ELLE US this month. 'They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb you’re not even going to know.'"

We are so happy for Kate Upton and look forward to seeing what the next year will have in store for the American beauty!
