Kate Upton's David Yurman Ads Elevate Her To Gisele Bundchen Status (PHOTOS)

Get used to seeing Kate Upton in the pages of fashion magazines, because the blonde bombshell is going to be pretty ubiquitous after her latest gig: a campaign for David Yurman.

The jewelry retailer handpicked the 21-year-old as the face of its fall 2013 ads, officially elevating the Sports Illustrated cover girl to the supermodel ranks. With Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss as her predecessors, Upton has pretty big shoes to fill. Luckily, the smoldering, black-and-white shots, lensed by the great Peter Lindbergh, showcase her top-notch modeling abilities. That captivating gaze is certainly not the mark of "a Page 3 girl."

Of course, this isn't Upton's first day at the high-fashion rodeo -- the YouTube star has graced her very own cover of Vogue, after all. But we imagine being able to go from string bikinis to avant-garde couture will only continue to work in her favor.

See Upton's David Yurman ads -- along with the shots of fellow campaign stars Dree Hemingway, Anais Mali and Catrinel Menghia -- below and tell us what you think!
