Kate Upton Lands First U.S. Vogue Cover
Super model Kate Upton has landed back-to-back coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition covers, and now the 20-year-old is appearing on the June cover of American Vogue for the first time.
Upton, who is referred to as "The Hottest Supermodel On Earth" in the issue, has also appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia and British Vogue.
Upton's cover issue comes after a Victoria's Secret casting agent negative remarks that
"She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."
Inside the Vogue issue, Upton shuts down her haters with confidence.
“I love my body. It’s what God gave me,” Upton says, adding that she's “so proud” of her boobs. "I never set out to be on the runway," Upton reveals. "I’ve always loved fashion, but it’s not what I set out to do.” Upton explains, "I trust my career path. I would love to have my own lingerie line" and notes that she's “very interested in acting.” When she was younger, Upton says "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."
Upton's June issue of Vogue hits newsstands on May 21.
