Although the 20-year old is something of a controversial figure in the world of fashion it seems that the Vogue team have no problem in stating what they think about her as the strapline for her cover photo proclaims her as “the hottest supermodel on Earth.”
This varies greatly from the view of Upton held by the Victoria’s Secret ream who traditionally prefer much slighter figured models. The stylist behind the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is on record as saying that Victoria’s Secret would never use Upton for one of their shows as she was seen as a “Page 3 girl” whose look was seen as far too obvious for them.
The photos taken of Kate for the June issue of Vogue are all by Princess Di’s favourite photographer Mario Testino. The interview inside the magazine is with Lizzie Widdicombe and Kate addresses the most popular question she is asked by all interviewers; her size and in particular the size of her breasts.
“I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”
The UK version of Vogue has already made its mind up about Kate as in their January 2013 issue they described her like this: “with her outsize bosoms and long slender legs, Kate Upton has a body that belongs to the supermodel era of modelling.”
‘In the flesh, this all-American beauty resembles a young Anna Nicole Smith or Marilyn Monroe”
Kate Upton is probably the first model to make it to the covers of the world’s top fashion magazines having started off by promoting herself via social media networks. She also had an early spot in Sports Illustrated, famous for its voluptuous models in its Swimsuit Edition.
It seems that Kate doesn’t see herself modelling as a full-time career as she wants to move into acting and also produce her own lingerie line. Although there is no word yet as regards a lingerie line for her she is currently filming scenes for The Other Woman, a new movie with Cameron Diaz.
