From SI To Vogue, Kate Upton Runs The World

She's already graced the pages of multiple issues as well as the cover of international editions, but now, Kate Upton has officially landed a spot on the cover of US Vogue— under the headline "American Dream Girl: How Kate Upton Became The Hottest Supermodel On Earth."
As you can see, she was granted slightly more clothing than her Sports Illustrated cover. It's really a testament to her versatility as a model that she can work the eye candy/sex bomb role as easily and beautifully as she pulls off the high-fashion babe look.
Plus, she's done it all while dealing with incessant body scrutiny all over the Internet. On that subject, she's cool as a cucumber and cheerful to boot: “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.” And if that doesn't make her relatable and down-to-Earth enough, the fact that she used to stuff her bra might do the trick.
Honestly, if you'd told us back in 2010 that the star of a sexy viral YouTube video would be on the cover of Vogue, we would have laughed in your face. But it looks like she's the one laughing now — and Dougie-ing, and posing for Terry Richardson, and waltzing around on the pages of your favorite glossy. As for her future? Well, you'll have to check out the full interview in Vogue to find out.
