Kate Upton is not your typical Vogue candidate, however she has managed to make her first Vogue USA cover. She is styled as Kate normally is, in swimwear… but this time with a retro feel.
Sources close to Kate revealed that it wasn’t only due to the way she looks but also her rising popularity and blasting media personality of late which elected her to be chosen for the cover.
“I didn’t buy the magazine that had models on the covers, because I didn’t know them. So I think it kind of gives me, as a model, a personality that people can connect with.
You sit there and you’re like ‘Is something wrong with me?’. The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. 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 my myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”
Kate’s made a few appearances in the Vogue family of magazines and as she steadily moves towards being a more rounded, well known model. However, she knows she is not a size-zero model of the present times and addresses this quite well in my opinion. It helps also having a sense of humour about it too. She appears to be enjoying life, and well, she should.
Kate is well loved by fashion designers like Michael Kors, who enjoys that she has a “healthy shape” and reminisces about the era when modelling was much healthier.
This editorial is fabulous and I’m pretty sure she is proud of her achievement of finally landing a Vogue US cover.
