Kate Upton Covers the June Issue of Vogue
Kate Upton profile continues to rise and her face covers the June issue of American Vogue, a highly coveted spot. Though, she has covered Vogue before, this is the first time she landed the American version of the magazine. In the spread, which was shot by Mario Testino, the beauty wears of series of memorable looks that show her best assets. She also talks about modeling career, her critics, naturally her boobs and so much more.
Here’s some of what she shared
On using twitter:
“I like it if it’s authentic and in the moment and happening.” Growing up, I didn’t buy the magazines that had models on the covers, because I didn’t know them. So I think this kind of gives me, as a model, a personality that people can connect with.”
On her critics:
“It was hard at first. 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 myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great. It’s kind of funny to think, Oh, wow, the news is talking about whether I’m fat or not.”
On runway modeling:
“I’ve always loved fashion but it’s not what I set out to do.
On modeling in Miami and her “boobs”:
“In Miami, boobs are fantastic. I was so proud of them. I was so excited. Are you kidding? I’m in Florida, and I’m constantly in bikinis. I was like, Yes! Killing it! All the girls on the beach are gonna be so jealous!”
On her career goals:
“I always had career goals. And I figured out a path I wanted to take to accomplish those goals. If that meant calling the best modeling agency in the world, that’s what it meant.”
