Katherine Elizabeth "Kate" Upton (born June 10, 1992) is an American model and actress, known for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Upton was named Rookie of the Year following her first appearance in 2011, and was the cover model for the 2012 and 2013 issues. She was also the subject of the 100th anniversary Vanity Fair cover. Upton has also appeared in the films Tower Heist (2011) and The Other Woman (2014).

Upton was born in St. Joseph, Michigan, and in 1999 moved with her family to Melbourne, Florida, where she was a student at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy. She is the daughter of Shelley (née Davis), a former Texas state tennis champion, and Jeff Upton, a high school athletics director. Her uncle is U.S. Representative Fred Upton (R-MI). Upton's great-grandfather, Frederick Upton, was co-founder of appliance manufacturer and marketer Whirlpool Corporation.
Upton attended Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy. As a young equestrian, she showed at the American Paint Horse Association and competed at a national level. With her horse Roanie Pony, she won three APHA Reserve World Championships — 13 and Under Western Riding, 13 and Under Horsemanship, and 14–18 Western Riding.

Upton has said that her belief in God is important to her. During a photo shoot, someone joked about a cross necklace she wore, "Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious," then took the necklace from her to do the shoot. Upton stated about the incident: "I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want a cross with me, at all times." As a result, Upton had a cross tattooed on the inside of her finger.
Upton started dating Detroit Tigers baseball player Justin Verlander in late 2011, and in 2016 the couple got engaged. She said while filling in as a co-host for Kelly Ripa on Live! with Kelly and Michael that she cannot wear Tigers' gear while watching her favorite team, the New York Yankees, play in Yankee Stadium when Verlander is the starting pitcher.
On August 31, 2014, nude photographs of Upton and several other female celebrities were leaked to the Internet.

Skriver was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her mother is an IT analyst and her father is a marine biologist. Both of her parents are gay and Skriver was conceived through IVF. She has a younger brother, Oliver, with whom she shares the same biological parents and who was also conceived through IVF.
At the age of 15, Skriver was discovered and approached about her modeling potential while on a trip to New York with her soccer team. Shortly thereafter, she was signed by Unique Models, an international modeling agency based in Copenhagen. She was consequently approached by other agencies outside of Denmark, but decided to wait to stay in school. After finishing school, she began pursuing a modeling career in 2011.

Skriver's debut season was Fall/Winter 2011, during which she opened for Alberta Ferretti and closed for Prada. That season, she also walked for many other prominent designers, like Calvin Klein, rag & bone, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Alexander McQueen , Balenciaga, DKNY and Christian Dior.
Since then she has walked in over 300 fashion shows, including Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, D&G, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Elie Saab, Vera Wang, Balmain, Badgley Mischka, Céline, Christopher Kane, Giambattista Valli, Louis Vuitton, Jil Sander, Nina Ricci, Rochas, Roland Mouret, Max Mara, Phillip Lim, Carolina Herrera, Mugler, Zac Posen, Cushnie et Ochs, Kenneth Cole, Victoria's Secret, IRFE, Guy Laroche, Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, Trussardi, Emporio Armani, Ports 1961, Alberta Ferretti, Dsquared2, Tom Ford, Barbara Casasola, Matthew Williamson, L'Wren Scott, Jeremy Scott, Thakoon Panichgul, Yigal Azrouël, Monique Lhuillier, Jason Wu, Lanvin, John Rocha, Temperley London, Erdem, Clements Ribeiro, Dennis Basso, Reem Acra, Ralph Rucci, Richard Chai, Akris, Valentin Yudashkin, Hussein Chalayan, Bottega Veneta, Victoria Beckham, See by Chloé, Alexis Mabille, Paco Rabanne, Giambattista Valli, Cacharel, John Galliano, Vanessa Bruno, Moschino, Derek Lam, Joseph Altuzarra, Richard Nicoll, Reed Krakoff, Rodarte, Doo-Ri Chung, Peter Som, Fendi, Giles, Jaeger, Azzedine Alaia, Stella McCartney and many more.

She has worked with Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, Tim Walker for American Vogue, Greg Kadel for German Vogue, Terry Richardson for H&M and Patrick Demarchelier for Dior.
Skriver has appeared in catalogs for Victoria's Secret and since 2013, she has walked every consecutive year in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. In February 2016, it was announced that Skriver was officially one of the brand's contracted Angels.

Skriver has on numerous occasions spoken candidly about LGBT rights and openly disussed her own upbringing with both parents being members of the LGBT community.
Referencing the controversial comments about same-sex parents and babies conceived via IVF made in an interview with fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, in which Dolce said, "You are born to a mother and a father - or at least that's how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented wombs, semen chosen from a catalog," while Gabbana added, "the only family is the traditional one", Skriver said: “I am human. I have the capacity to love and to be loved. I feel empathy. I have a mind that allows me to form opinions and to gain perspective on situations and the world around me. I am an opinion-former. I hurt. I feel joy. I feel gratitude. I am a daughter to two beautiful people, who both happen to be gay. I am a sister to a boy who is also human and who has the same capabilities as I do. I am a friend. I am a lover. I am a dreamer. I am certainly many things, but one thing I am not - is synthetic. There is no such thing as a synthetic human.” Adding that, “to me, family is a group of people bound by love” and her parents ”had a burning desire to bring life into this world, which is why they came together through a life-giving process and gave my brother and I the chance to be a part of this universe.” She went on to ask: ”Did my mother and father not deserve that joy because they are both gay themselves? Were they not allowed to feel the warmth of parenting? Were they not allowed the most basic of human rights — to create love?”
In 2015, Skriver was made a celebrity ambassador for the Family Equality Council and it's Outspoken Generation Program, which aims to raise awareness about LGBTQ families.
She has said that her ultimate goal is that her story will “not be that interesting soon, because that would mean that society has come to accept LGBT parents to be just as traditional and normal as any other way of having a family.”

Jessica Alba


Jessica Marie Alba (born April 28, 1981) is an American actress, model and businesswoman. She has won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television, and a Golden Globe nomination for her lead role in the television series Dark Angel.

Alba began her television and movie appearances at age 13 in Camp Nowhere and The Secret World of Alex Mack (1994). She rose to prominence as the lead actress in the James Cameron television series Dark Angel (2000–2002) when she was 19 years old. Alba later appeared in Honey (2003), Sin City (2005), Fantastic Four (2005), Into the Blue (2005), Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) and Good Luck Chuck (2007).

In January 2012, Alba co-founded The Honest Company, a consumer goods company that sells non-toxic household products, and owns 15 to 20 percent of the company.

Alba was born in Pomona, California, to Catherine Louisa (née Jensen) and Mark David Alba. Her mother has Danish, Welsh, German, English, and French ancestry, while her paternal grandparents, who were born in California, were both the children of Mexican immigrants. She has a younger brother, Joshua. Her third cousin, once removed, is writer Gustavo Arellano. Her father's Air Force career took the family to Biloxi, Mississippi, and Del Rio, Texas, before settling back in Claremont, California, when she was nine years old. Alba has described her family as being a "very conservative family – a traditional, Catholic, Latin American family" and herself as very liberal; she says she had identified herself as a "feminist" as early as age five.

Alba's early life was marked by a multitude of physical maladies. During childhood, she suffered from partially collapsed lungs twice, had pneumonia four to five times a year, as well as a ruptured appendix and a tonsillar cyst. Alba became isolated from other children at school, because she was in the hospital so often due to her illnesses that no one knew her well enough to befriend her. Alba has also had asthma since she was a child. Alba has said that her family's frequent moving also contributed to her isolation from her peers. She has acknowledged that she suffered from obsessive–compulsive disorder during her childhood. Alba graduated from Claremont High School at age 16, and she subsequently attended the Atlantic Theater Company.

Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea (/əˈzeɪljə/), is an Australian rapper, songwriter, and model. Born in Sydney and raised in Mullumbimby, Azalea moved to the United States at the age of 16 to pursue a career in hip hop music, residing in the southern part of the country. She earned public recognition after releasing YouTube music videos for her songs "Pu$$y" and "Two Times". She signed a record contract with T.I.'s record label Grand Hustle Records in 2012, gaining attention from her debut mixtape Ignorant Art.

Her debut studio album, The New Classic (2014), peaked among the top five of several charts worldwide and received generally mixed reviews. The album generated her debut single "Work", and the successful songs "Fancy" and "Black Widow". "Fancy" topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for seven consecutive weeks, making Azalea the fourth female rapper in the history of the chart to reach number one. Additionally, Azalea was featured on Ariana Grande's single "Problem", which peaked at number two while "Fancy" was number one; Azalea joined The Beatles as the only acts to rank at numbers one and two simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 entries. Azalea also went on to pass Lil' Kim as the female rapper with the longest-leading number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100. Azalea's second studio album Digital Distortion is due 2016. Its lead single, "Team", was released on 18 March 2016.

Amethyst Amelia Kelly was born in Sydney and brought up in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. Her father, Brendan Kelly, was a painter and comic artist, while her mother, Tanya, cleaned holiday houses and hotels. Azalea lived in a house that her father built by hand from mud-bricks, surrounded by 5 hectares (12 acres) of land. According to Azalea, she has some Aboriginal (Indigenous Australian) ancestry: "My family came to Australia on the First Fleet. My family's been in that country for a long time, over 100 years. If your family's lived in Australia for a long time, everyone has a little bit of [Aborigine blood]. I know my family does because we have an eye condition that only Aboriginal people have." Azalea has also said that her father "made her look at [art] as a teenager", which has always influenced her life and work. She began rapping at age 14. Before embarking on a solo career, Azalea formed a group with two other girls from her neighbourhood: "I was like, I could be the rapper. This could be like TLC. I'll be Left Eye."Azalea eventually decided to disband the group because the other girls weren't taking it seriously: "I take everything I do serious [sic]. I'm too competitive."

In pursuit of her desire to move to America, Azalea dropped out of high school. She worked and saved the money she earned by cleaning hotel rooms and holiday houses with her mother. She claims to have hated school, which, apart from art class, only made her miserable. She also said she had no friends and was teased for her homemade outfits. Azalea travelled to the United States in 2006, shortly before she turned 16. She told her parents she was going "on a holiday" with a friend, but eventually decided to stay and shortly afterwards told them she was not coming back home: "I was drawn to America because I felt like an outsider in my own country, I was in love with hip hop, and America is the birthplace of that, so I figured the closer I was to the music, the happier I'd be. I was right." She recalled, "My mum was crying, saying, 'Just be safe.' I was thinking, 'I'm going by myself. I'm fucking crazy!'."After her arrival in the U.S., she received her GED, and resided in the country on a visa waiver for six years, returning to Australia every three months to renew it. Azalea currently resides in the U.S. on a five-year O visa, as of February 2013, having previously earned money illegally.
