After American Apparel refused to acknowledge Nancy Upton as the clear winner of their plus-size modeling contest last month (since she was, after all, making fun of their contest), the company received so much bad press that they invited Upton to their headquarters to talk things over. She flew out to California to do so last week, and apparently had a great time. She even went out boozing one night with two of the company's creative directors, with whom she'd been trading icy Internet barbs just a few weeks before.
