Some might bristle at the thought, but it's quickly becoming clear that Kate Upton is this generation's supermodel. She's in a league of her own, going from a scantily clad sex kitten to a high-class Vogue cover girl seemingly overnight. She's already covered Vogue three times in less than a year, with Vogue Brazil's July issue being her fourth (American, British, and Italian editions caught the Upton bug early). Here, she assumes the femme fatal role, trading in the Monroe tresses for a slicked back vixen look and a Miu Miu and Alaïa wardrobe. Honestly, we're continually impressed by her versatility and her effortless combo of sexy and chic — it's something we haven't seen since the heyday of the '90s. Somehow she manages to make even painted on swimsuits somewhat fashionable (heavy on the "somewhat").
Anyway, there's no denying Kate Upton's gorgeousness. She's proven herself to be more than just a voluptuous body and a pretty face. She's a model in the truest sense of the word: Confident, graceful, and a true chameleon. (Complex)
