Kate Upton covers USA Vogue June Cover 2013

kate-upton-vogue-june-2013-2Hiya Poutlings!

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.

kate-upton-vogue-june-2013-4

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.

What do you think about Kate Upton’s US Vogue editorial?

Animal Nursery Editorial Controversy

Hi Poutlings

upton3

Here are some photos from a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot featuring Kate Upton and some exotic fur babies. There is a lot of controversy, of course, as there always is with Miss Upton. However, before I touch on that, please can I confess – I love Kate’s styling in these photos. It’s very retro, but it’s incredibly flattering. I love the fact that no boobs are pushed on you when looking at these images, and I lovelovelove the fact that Bazaar has some hair and makeup people who weren’t hypnotised by her boobies and actually put some great effort in to make her look great!

The controversy? The editorial is aptly named “The Animal Nursery” and the theme is that Kate, is not only a largely talented breasted model, acting as a nurse to baby animals, and she poses winningly while holding up various kinds of animals.

upton4

The shoot was styled by Carine Roitfeld and it will appear in all 26 international editions of the magazine. This is hardly the first time a major fashion magazine appears tone deaf about how fashion editorials are accessorised. Vogue recently went under fire by using actual babies as accessories for fashion shoots, and just a couple of months ago, Vogue did an absolutely terrible shoot in the areas of New York which were drastically affected by Hurricane Sandy. So, where does “using endangered baby animals”” fall on the list of editorial disasters?

Fashionista reached out to Harper’s Bazaar, but no one at the magazine would issue any statements. Fashionista also reached out to Zoological Wildlife Foundation, which apparently provided the animals for the shoot, and they wouldn’t go on record either. But, as always PETA did, FYI – I am not a fan of PETA however their statement was interesting…

“The gibbon featured in the photographs is an infant and should be with his mother at all times. Besides the emotional trauma that he has undoubtedly suffered as a result of the separation, his delicate immune system is still developing, and he is susceptible to illness that humans carry. All the animals in the photographs are endangered and should be protected rather than being treated like props.”

Now, PETA, are melodramatic all the time, however – if all of what they are saying is true, (I’m not claiming to know because I am not a vet), then the gibbon should most definitely be with its mother. Damn. As for the little tiger… I think he is adorable. I wish he would follow me home and he could be my tiger for life. I bet he has super sharp kitten claws though… and to honest, that is what bothers me most about this shoot – that they had all those babies together on the set. What if the baby tiger thought the gibbon was a playmate and those kitten claws come out and then…? Disaster.

Anyway, what are your thoughts?

Models and Meat

Hiyaa Poutlings

Is it just me or are fast food chains combining meat and models into their adverts to prevent the men from going to the bathroom in advert breaks? The money that these models must get paid for these adverts must be astronomical, as they are almost downing more calories in one mouthful on screen than they usually do in a whole year. Okay, maybe that is an exaggeration, but… you get what I mean?

Heidi Klum’s latest job for US chain Carl’s Jr shows Miss Klum proividing the hot sauce in the advert.

she “plays” a burger eating seductress in a recreation of the famous Mrs Robinson scene from classic movie The Graduate.

In a preview of the promo Heidi Klum explained:

“I am playing Mrs Robinson and I am seducing the cute little boy with the burger. Food and sauce is on my mouth and I’m licking my lips. It’s a very sensual, sexy scene.”

Kate Upton and Paris Hilton have also met the marketing men’s approval. They both got hot and steamy witha  burger in hand for a pretty penny.

And the super-trim models aren’t just getting excited about the burgers…  Pamela Anderson and Jessica Simpson have all been the faces of Pizza Hut and they never opted for the salads. Luscious Latino star, Selma Hayek, appeared in a Burger King advert too and Dunkin Donuts used Naomi Campbell to boost their profits.

What are your thoughts?

Mine are… SELL OUTS…. Clearly in a world where the focus is slowly becoming on being healthy, a fast food chain is not the correct way to go about your business, especially if your livelyhood and career has been your body….

Every Kate Upton Magazine Cover, Ever

Hiya Poutlings

This week, high fashion magazine JALOUSE released its latest issue – with boob-tastic Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl, Kate Upton striking a pose. Kate, who manages to channel Anna Nicole Smith (in a good way! not like the annoyance that is Courtney Stodden)), typically ends up with most her clothes off, so it’s nice to see her explore her HAUTE COUTURE side.

What do you think of her Jalouse look? If it’s not really your thing, then check out Kate’s other covers…

Esquire Magazine – May 2012

Kate commences with that annoying “shirt” on this cover.

Sports Illustrated 2012

With a bathing suit bottom that small, why even bother wearing one at all?

Esquire

This cover is a double whammy — Kate and Jon Hamm show off their suit-wearing skills (it appears Jon knows how to don a whole outfit).

DT Magazine

Oh look! Kate’s enjoying a snack. A sexy snack.

Esquire Czech Republic

That little bra-shirt is just way too confining for Kate

Sunday Times – Style July 2012

Actually (sort of) fully clothed.

GQ

Kate shows her patriotsm to America by sucking a red, white and blue lollipop.

GQ Italia

Kate finds a new way to expose her boobs.

I think she’s gonna go far in the modelling world. No one can doubt that she is a kick ass force to be reckoned with… let’s not forget she knows how to dance too.

The Bad Hairday… We All Have Them!

Hi Pouters!

In honour of Sandylashxx going to the hairdresser for the first time in 10 years.

Celebrities have access to some of the best hair stylists in the entire world, and yet they still have bad hair days.

Have a look at some of the worst bad hair days I’ve come across on the net!

It wasn't until now that we knew a supermodel as beautiful as Kate Upton could have a bad hair day.

That's one hell of a royally bad hair day, Kate!

Vertically challenged Jill Zarin has a solution for her height, pile a foot of hair on your head!

Rachel Griffiths shows the world why one should never ride in a convertible with the top down to an event.

Avril Lavigne, you're 27, not 14. You have no excuse. Whatsoever.

Cameron Diaz is blown away at how awesome her Starbucks is!

Nicki Minaj looks like a cross between Marge Simpson and candy floss

David Beckham was clearly tired of hearing how hot he is. Don't worry, nobody's saying that now, Becks

Is she trying to look like a greying grandma? Even Pink admits that her stylist ruined her hair!

Sharon Stone puts Snooki to shame with her helmet head poof.

Its rumoured Elvis is one of Alicia's biggest musical influences, well, I'm not sure about the musical part, maybe... hair influences?

Kelly lost a ton of weight, but it appears to have gone to her hair!!

Kesha always strikes me as being dirty, but I didn't know she was stupid enough to stick her finger into a plug point... I can't help but wonder what she is hiding in that mohowk!

Adrienne Bailon's hair is so side-heavy, she had to balance it out with an equally massive earring.

Remember the day Kaley Cuco played in the hay...

Anne Hathaway keeps herself safe on the red carpet with her massive helmet head.

it's Janet ... Mr. Jackson, if you're nasty.

Oh what type of post would this be without taking a stab at Jersey Shore, stop judging me, I haven't done it ages! Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino found religion ... in his hair.

Johnny Weir, you're not a ballerina, you're a figure skater.

hahahahaha.... Kellis... hahahahaha!

Let's play a game, its called... WHERE'S WHOOPI?

Splendid comb over Charles, just splendid!

This is unheard of Jennifer Anniston having a bad hair day...

Jared Leto needs to learn the rule of mohawks: do not do them.

Ahh, so this is why Lady Gaga wears so many wigs!

 

Jay Manuel really needs to find a look look. ASAP. You're no silver fox like George Clooney.

 

Cassie's hair is the perfect example of why electric razors are not suited for children.

 

Nooo! Mel B lives up to her Scary Spice nickname with this 'do. But what's a half-shaved 'do without ...
