Kate Upton Made A Huge Mistake...Or A Genius Move?

Kate Upton has no problem showing off her bod. And frankly, we have no problem with Kate Upton showing off her bod. It's a beautiful thing and she is clearly comfortable and happy in her own skin. That said, her latest getup is basically the fashion equivalent of saying "don't think about elephants!" And then, of course, all you can think about is elephants. The ever-rising star stepped out in a somewhat confusing ensemble on Monday, and while we're not entirely sure what she was going for, we're going to take the relentlessly positive route and say that she's making an awesome statement about fashion and real-world body image.
Clearly, this garment is meant for smaller-chested ladies looking to expose some midriff, rather than those with a hearty penchant for under-boob. But she decided to go for it anyway. Maybe she saw the dress, liked it, tried it on, and was pleased with the result. Maybe she doesn't have the Alexa Chung-type figure this dress was made for, but you know what; maybe she liked the way she looked and decided to say "f*ck it, I look good, and nobody's gonna tell me otherwise." We will meet this hypothetical scenario with a resounding get it, girl. More power to you.
That said, we're still stuck thinking about elephants. Oh well.
