Ania, a Russian woman posted a photo of herself on Twitter striking a pose similar to that of Upton on the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, with the caption, “Me as Kate Upton.” In the photo, the Vancouver and Moscow native posed in a white ski jacket with a fur-trimmed hood and exposed her cleavage.
There is no word on whether or not Ania has modeling experience, but she does describe herself as a “Mail order bride in training” on her Twitter account.
Upton retweeted the photo of the buxom blonde, with the caption, “amazing!” After Upton’s tweet, Ania became an instant social media sensation.
And it wasn’t just social media. According to New York Magazine, Ania agreed to do an interview with Sports Illustrated, provided they did not use her last name.
“I'm getting a lot of marriage proposals,” she said, adding “I’ve been told I look like [Upton] in the past, but when the SI issue came out and she was wearing the same jacket that is hanging in my closet, I knew it had to be done.”
