Love her or hate her, you can't deny that 2012 is quickly becoming the year of Kate Upton. Personally, we're starting to hop on the Upton bandwagon, if only for how surprisingly versatile she manages to be at modeling.
She can do the sex-on-a-stick men's mag thing perhaps better than anyone else — did you see that GQ cover?). But she's no one-trick pony. The Sport's Illustrated stunner can also manage to look glamorous, and on the just-released CR Fashion Book cover, completely adorable. The photo, shot by renowned American photographer Bruce Weber, features Upton looking more playful than we normally see her (perhaps it's because she's not in a bikini?).
Since we've been shamelessly stalking the news surronding the CR Fashion Book, created by the irreverent Carine Roitfeld, former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, for awhile now, we were thrilled to get our hands on an exclusive preview of the interior shots — scroll through to check it out in all its splendor. The magazine hits stores September 13, and if these stunning photos are any indication of the rest of the magazine, CR Fashion Book will be flying off newsstands before the 14.
