UK Vogue puts Kate Upton on cover, explains 'she's hardly a heffalump'
Published December 10, 2012
It is Kate Upton's world, we just live in it.
In 2012, the blonde stunner, 20, went from being named the spokesmodel for Carl's Jr. hamburgers to the cover model for UK Vogue.
Vogue features director Sarah Harris writes about Upton in the January issue: "Standing at 5ft 10in, with her outsize bosoms and long slender legs, Kate Upton has a body that belongs to the supermodel era of modeling. Growing up, she idolize Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, and Heido Klum. In the flesh, this all-American beauty resembles a young Anna Nicole Smith or Marilyn Monroe."
Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman added: "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!"
Those Brits really know how to dole out the praise.
