Kate Upton lands the most prestigious cover of her career! The Sports Illustrated model is seen here on the cover of British Vogue!
The magazine’s editor, Alexandra Shulman, said she deliberately wanted to choose a “curvier” model for the New Year.
She said: ‘It’s very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them.
‘When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!’
On the cover, Kate is seen showcasing her hourglass figure in a white dress, which clings to her stunning figure.
Her blonde hair is left loose in tumbling curls, and her make-up simple to draw attention to her natural beauty.
Kate has enjoyed a huge career boost since she landed the prestigious cover role on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this year.
And the popularity of the pretty blonde star is largely down to her girl-next-door appearance and her enviable curves.
Speaking previously about her most famous assets, namely her large cleavage, Kate said: ‘I don’t really know what the appeal is about boobs. But I do know that when I was in junior high, I used to be made fun of Ã¢â¬â for being flat-chested.
‘Everyone would go, “She’s not pretty! She doesn’t have boobs!” So I always had boob envy. And when finally I went through my growth spurt, and they appeared, and I just loved them. So that’s why I like boobs, because I didn’t have them, and then I got them!’
Kate gets a lot of criticism for being too “curvy”. I’ve seen many comments about how she shouldn’t be considered a supermodel, based on her size. I think that’s totally crazy. I think she’s gorgeous, and she’s a good role model (size-wise) for girls.
Who’s with me!
