Looks like Kate Upton is hanging up her bikinis in the meantime because what we’re seeing is a far cry from the dougie-dancing girl that we’ve become used to. The blond bombshell has traded in her body rolls for a more poised and sophisticated image, exchanging her barely there clothing for a more conservative one-piece. The actress attended the 10th Annual Style Awards held during the New York Fashion Week (spring 2014) in a black Altuzarra zipper dress.
The actress stepped onto the red carpet looking absolutely glamorous with her slightly tousled shoulder-length locks, complementing her suit-dress-like outfit with a pair of classic Jimmy Choo Abel point-toe pumps in claret and a Jimmy Choo black clutch. Her makeup was kept clean and natural, putting the focus around the eyes and leaving the lips au naturel.

The Altuzarra Walker dress looks like a conventional LBD at first glance, but, as they say, the devil is in the details. The dress has a lovely mesh inset on one thigh, which tapers into a zipper decor path. Another zipper line converges with the previous one, giving the dress an overlap illusion that makes it look almost like a suit dress. The padded shoulders add a little formality to the dress.
