Kate Upton’s US Vogue Cover and Spread

upton3 - Kate Upton's US Vogue Cover and Spread

Kate Upton, who is famous for not having the typical skinny model figure, just got her first US Vogue cover together with a spread that shows off a slightly slimmer (photoshopped) Kate. From Vogue:

What makes the Kate Upton era so unlikely is that the things we love about her—those curves! that personality!—defy what the word model has come to mean, at least on the runway: a seemingly endless procession of lanky, expressionless wraiths. That is most certainly not Upton’s profile. (Descriptions of her figure tend to involve euphemisms for a single word: breasts.) And yet Upton’s body has sparked debate. This year’s Sports Illustrated cover—a shot of her in Antarctica, parka open to reveal a stunning breadth of cleavage—set off a fresh round of “Is she fat?” conversations across the Internet.

“It was hard at first,” she admits of hearing such rumblings. “You sit there and you’re like ‘Is something wrong with me?’ ” But she’s learned to ignore her critics—and come to regard her healthy body as a point of pride. “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.

… says Kate.

I kind of agree. I don’t find her extraordinary looking but I like how she drives many women mad lol.
Some are just so close-minded that they can’t bear the idea of a non pear/hourglass shape being seen as attractive.
Sure her waist is not tiny and her butt quite flat but she has large breasts and long slim limbs, so it’s not like she has 0 asset. Then, I can understand the appeal even though she’s not the sexiest out there

Thank you! I’m so glad someone agrees! Kate has really started to grow on me and I admire her for doing her thing. I think she’s a great model and a great role model for young women. Ok so she doesn’t have Candice Swanepoels perky bubble bum or Miranda Kerr’s waist but seriously guys why bash this woman for the way she looks? She is feminine and curvy and I guarantee most men find this more attractive – and frankly so do I. I find her much more intriguing and I’m not going to bash her for GOD FORBID being… Read more »

heyyyy, it's that one guy

for someone whose job is to sell their body, her body shape isn’t that great. Besides the wide shape of her torso I feel like she doesn’t put in enough of the exercise necessary to be receiving as much praise as she does.

her face is impeccable though.
seriously beautiful girl

ashleym

Sorry, but how would you know how much exercise she does?? I’m sure she does a hell of a lot. More gym time does not equal super-toned, thin body. Maybe for you, but not for everyone.

@Ashley: then she should not be a model

Sophie

why sofia? because models have to look like YOUR version of perfection? Some people don’t like the ultra hard look, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be models…

sofia:
Who makes more money right now as a model? You, or Kate? Answer: Kate. Her net worth right now is $2 M.

She broke through, she’s famous. she’s rich, and she’ll probably get richer now that Anna Wintour is on her side.

There are models out there that are what you and many consider “perfect”; But they dont have what sell, whatever the je ne said quoi is. That’s the difference.

in Ukraine, Czech there are thousands of girls with perfect bodies, but the fact is they dont become super stars without the drive, the attitude, the sex appeal and the hard work.

Elle

Sofia, I am referring to your comment below about how models should at least look like they are in shape. In my opinion, that might true. it seems to be the case with bikini or Victoria’s Secret models. But what about runway models? Some of them (I do not want to put ‘many of them’) are far too thin to remind me of someone “in shape”. To me, they look like they eat too little. Not my idea of someone “in shape”. I find Kate Upton’s long and slim legs and nice skin more attractive. Although, I have to say,… Read more »

Everyone can be a model as long as there is someone willing to take pictures of them. I hate that idea that there should be standards to be a model, to be worth of being published in a fashion magasine. No, a model doesn’t have to be in shape, doesn’t have to be tall, doesn’t even have to be beautiful.

Sofia
Guest
Sofia

@Elle: I wouldn’t call most runway models “in shape” either… a lot of them look like Holocaust victims. But I still think Kate is out of shape. IMO she looks like a mother of 2… and I think she’s only 20. She has potential if she just watches what she eats and does some strength training (and lightens up her eyebrows).

Summer

Summer

She shouldn’t be a model? Apparently she should because she is making a pretty penny and has landed arguably one of the most prestigious high fashion magazine covers that the majority of catwalk waifs can only dream about… Bearing in mind that the majority are lucky enough to get past 3 seasons in the fashion world before being made redundant.

it’s just for the sales because she’s overhyped atm. it’s not an accomplishment in her case

Sam
Guest

Really? It is an accomplishment for her. Everything magazines do IS for sales. No one gets a vogue cover because vogue thinks they deserve it . People get vogue covers because vogue thinks they will appeal to buyers and sell that months issue. Following your reasoning then no one should be proud of their vogue cover. I find her really beautiful and refreshing. Good for her. Getting a vogue cover is a big deal for everyone.

lydia

They would if she dieted herself down to a size 00.

I genuinely believe that the majority of the women lauded for their beauty on this site receive that praise because they are incredibly thin and not because they are beautiful or have any stand-out feature.

I think Kate Upton has a classically beautiful face and generally looks good in her photo shoots. Added to that, it’s nice to not see a woman contorting herself into strange shapes in order to give the impression of having the curves that they have worked so hard to get rid of.

I like her in most of these pics, and I like the more healthy and realistic image that she represents compared to most models. But I have to wonder what she does for her workouts; her arms look like flabby little sticks. I don’t think that girl has ever done a proper push-up lol.

She claims to have worked out ALOT for her SI photoshoot. Too bad it didn’t show in the pics.

I think she could benefit from strength training. Her arms/legs are slim so if she did work out, we would see muscle tone there. It’s easy enough to photoshop a few pounds off her midsection but you can’t really add muscle tone to limbs without exercise.

She is definitely different from most models in the b❆❆b department – but the rest of her body is (shape-wise) not that different. She is tall; has long, thin arms and legs; quite narrow hips and little waist definition (in spite of how well they have photoshopped her in this!). If she toned up a lot and her b❆❆bs were smaller she’d fit right into the VS lineup. Her b❆❆bs look great to me (if a little disproportionate), but so many women don’t seem to like big b~~~~, so I get that they might make her less popular. I disagree… Read more »

Her body shape is indeed not that different.
Kate is apple shaped. There are several beautiful women in public eye whom are apple shaped – Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis – but this does not diminish their beauty.
Apple shaped girls become more like hourglass shap – Black Hair Media Forum – Page 1

THE FITTING ROOM PROBLEM | Fashion Reflection | STYLES REVIEW | Finding Trends

We can’t all be hourglass.
Even the great Gisele is as straight as a ruler and has to contort herself like a snake dancer to provide the illusion of a waist. But she’s thin so thats OK.

Cass
Guest
Cass

I dont think she is an apple shape, she has a body type which doesnt fall into any of the 4 basic categories. She is an 8 shape. Her hips are high up on her torso due to her actual bone structure, and when she gains weight it goes straight to her high hips which create that “shelf/broad” appearance, and obvi to her b❆❆bs as well haha 🙂 i myself have this body type, but im a bit slimmer, nonetheless im so happy to see someone with my uncommon body type being quite successful in this industry 🙂

“I disagree with her being called ‘curvy’” Jesus there you go again telling us who is “curvy” and who isn’t. Christina Hendricks isn’t curvy yet you claim she is. Hendricks has a thick middle/tummy when not corsetted up.Same with Tara Lynn. Just because she doesn’t have the same body shape as you, you attack. I already knew exactly what you were going to say and again you said it. You can’t stand the fact that some people find her attractive. You say she isn’t “curvy” only to make yourself feel better. You are so insecure and spiteful. I don’t know… Read more »

Your weird rant is out of place. Its bizarre that some stranger’s difference in preference makes you write some essay about how mad you are about it

wb
Guest

i don’t think she looks like the other models at all. she definitely has some “excess” fat on her upper body (nothing wrong with that but just saying) whereas other models are lean all over. her legs are tiny because she was just built like that. i know a few people who have belly pudge but their legs are “too thin”

HB
Guest

Erica- I agree. Additionally, she gets jobs because of who her family is. I don’t like that vogue frames this obvious attempt to sell more magazines as embracing body diversity. She’s just popular this year.

it says that her mom was a state tennis champion, and her dad is an athletics teacher at some school, how would that help her get jobs? the only reason her parents helped her with getting jobs is because they blessed her with those b~~~~.

I think she is referring to the fact that Kate’s great grandfather was one of the founders of Whirlpool, which is a HUGE company, and her uncle is a congressman. not really sure what that has to do with the fashion industry though..

Mera

She got the vogue cover because she sells magazines.

There are *plenty* of rich girls in modeling, and they don’t get US vogue covers.

It all comes down to the obscene amounts of cash that US vogue is going to get from her cover.

That’s what I was referring to. Not the Vogue thing in particular, but just getting jobs/a really good agency and agent. Having money and connections goes a VERY long way.

i think she has a boyish figure if anyone stops thinking about her b~~~~,and those b❆❆bs are big but not toned.sorry to offend,i think she doesnt fit into the industry requirements and will not be there for long due to that.probably the bigger b❆❆bs giving her a little edge over other models,but to be honest i still feel Adriana Lima or Miranda Kerr have healthy looking skinny bodies with curves in the right places.i know the media is slammed a lot of times for promoting skinniness,but i think the skinny body the media portrays is the most attractive to look… Read more »

Something about her puts me off, I get irritated whenever I see her. However I can’t deny that she looked amazing at the met ball (that green dress was made for her) and she has long, slender limbs. I personally don’t really like apple shapes, which is what she is, but whatever. I like her better in clothes though, where smart styling can slim her down a little. She’s not runway skinny, but she’s definitely not fat either. She’s a slim model, nothing wrong with that.

snoops
Guest
snoops

She is certainly not fat, and she is not unpleasant to look at, she is just far, far too ordinarly/typical looking for me to get excited about. I get that she is not typical for the fashion world, but I can’t help that I enjoy interesting/unique faces and features over typical/blends-into-the-crowd cuteness.

Saying all that, girls like her have their place in modelling too coz it needs more diversity. She is a true “in betweener” aka not skinny but not plus size.

BlondeBohemian
Guest
BlondeBohemian

While it refreshing to see someone with a different body type then lets say… Karlie Kloss on the cover of Vogue, I am personally not a fan of her. I can see her appeal, but I like an hourglass body. I like a tiny waist.

However, she is a talented model. She manages to surprise me in every photo shoot she does. However, I can’t believe she is so young. I’m 25 and I look younger than her.

Give her props because I haven’t seen her in the tabloids actin’ a fool yet, like other celebrities her age are doing.

She looks great, very pretty. I like when she wears dresses that aren’t too tight at the midsection. Every model plays up their assets (legs, waist, face, whatever it is). Kate has amazing breasts, so of course she will play them up, no different than any other person whose job it is to look awesome. She’s a hot blond with awesome t–s. DEAL WITH IT. She doesn’t have the typical abs-bearing tummy that seems to be a *requirement* for models theses days. Most of you don’t either. So maybe we should say, “Good job kate!

she looked sexy as hell at the Met Gala, that green dress…damn. they made her eyebrows way too dark in the Vogue shoot, but she looks beautiful in it regardless. her face may not be everyone’s cup of tea (her bone structure is on the rounder side) but it’s so feminine and pretty to me. i also like here quote, i’m glad she’s not letting the mean-spirited criticism get to her. you go Kate!

jenna
Guest
jenna

Finally someone points out the too-dark eyebrows!!! That was all I could think of looking at the pictures – very distracting.
Personally I think she can either look very pretty or very not pretty, as in this shoot where her face has a “piggy” look. But I won’t deny that sometimes she looks great too.
Her body is meh. Like others have mentioned, would she even be a big deal without those big b~~~~?

Winnie
Guest
Winnie
probably not, but the way i see it, every model who makes it has that “thing” which makes them famous. Adriana has her eyes, Naomi has her legs, Cindy had her mole, etc. the backlash against Kate and the fact that her breasts are her “special thing” stems from the preferential treatment and constant over-sexualization of big b~~~~, and then there are the stigmas attached like people assuming you’re a hussy or something if you own them and are’t ashamed of them. Kate’s a pretty girl and she seems nice and down to earth, she has a realistic view about… Read more »

Not a fan of Kate but I strongly agree with her quote. She’s hardly fat, just getting picked apart for appearing feminine and animated, rather than a frail walking hanger. At this point the fashion industry has become a bit of a joke, people used to tell pretty girls “you look like a model!” but recently I heard someone say to their girlfriend “you’re too skinny, you look like a damn model!” lol…I think Kate is a breath of fresh air for many people.

I think she looks great, but the cover and some of he other photos look very 80’s or maybe early 90s to me. I still have some mags left from that era at my house and the cover would fit right in, except for the extra smooth (almost plastic looking) skin. It’s the brows but also the body i think, because it is a little rare to see a more meaty body on a cover these days. Then again plenty of not skinny celebs do mags without them looking vintage to me. *shrug* Anyway she looks pretty.

Photoshop is this woman’s best friend. It’s kind of cool that the right make up artist can almost make her look like a cross between Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Anna Nicole Smith though.

I think she is really beautiful and not ordinary at all!
Maybe not “unique” enough for a high fashion model, but still better looking than the “average” person. I bet If she went out clubbing or something like that the guys would probably go crazy over her.(at least where I live) 😀

Still not a big fan of her body.. I don’t really like big b❆❆bs on skinny girls.. and to be she is pretty thin and apart from the booby not curvy at all.

On one hand her cover is miles better than any actress whose been on the cover( see beyonce), and I hope this means models will be on more frequently. Since 2010 only two covers have been models- Kate Moss and Gisele. I would rather see her than Beyonce or Michelle Obama or Gwenyth, just hoping the boring celebs get replaced with more models.

Lau

Completely, completely agree! I used to buy Cosmopolitan and loved it! But once they started putting the most ‘it’ celebrity on th cover, I stopped buying the magazine. I thought magazines like these were not meant to be for teenage girls who like everyone that’s currently popular… :/

I don’t understand why some comments say she should not be a model. A model is someone who represents whatever the fashion editor wants them to represent. They could be skinny, lean, soft, chubby, fat, tall, short, young, old, white, black, yellow, green, blue… It’s all about perception. If a magazine decides they want to represent the American dream girl, booby, Hampton-like, etc. so why not use Kate as model? A lot of runaway models are slim because it’s easier to fit clothes on them. They are tall because they “hang” the clothes better. That’s it. You can search for… Read more »

Agreed 100%! I saw a comment above where someone said that she’s not fat, but “too fat to be a model”, and that made me sad. Like, says who? Personally, I find it very refreshing to see Kate in Vogue, instead of the ultra-thin frames we’re constantly exposed to. It’s a step in the right direction!

I have a love/hate kind of thing with her photoshoots. Love this one, she looks beautiful and her body looks nice. Loved her in her SI rookie year, but hated the shoots in the years she got the covers. Loved that black and white shoot she did a while back, cant remember what it was for – shoes or something. I think it may be down to whether the shoots primary focus is on b~~~~? I read that she is 5’8, 130lbs, 34-25-36. does anyone think this is accurate?

So weird how sometimes Kate looks thin and sometimes she looks almost plus-size. Looking at that first photo (where she’s on the beach in a swimsuit), she looks SKINNY. Then the pics of her at the events in the gowns, she looks so much bigger.
Especially in the one pic where she’s standing by Leslie Mann (I think that’s who that is), Leslie looks like more of a model than Kate.

Nobsnob

Gotta love how women hate on her because she hasn’t a typical bikini model body and has -gasp- a tummy!!
Like there is a scale of things to absolutely not have as a woman, as having a tummy tops it all and is the worst “deformation” a body could have.
You all complain about the pressure of all having to have an identical body but when an apple shape has some tummy and rocks it you all back up in disgust.
Girls, either you praise all shapes or you praise only one, but you gotta make a decision.

Agree nobsnob. When someone apple shaped is on this site, it somehow brings out the meanest comments. Only hourglass or small pears are accepted.

Kate is hardly “rocking a tummy”. In the candids her midsection is straight in profile, I see no bulge. In the Vogue pictures they photoshopped her to have a smaller waist and definitely no pooch on her torso. Adriana Lima has a boxy torso and long thin arms/legs just like Kate and gets nothing but praise. If you want to defend a woman rocking extra pudge with a bulging tummy, try Kim K, she gets nothing but hate even though she’s 7 mo pregnant lol…oh and she’s pear-shaped, so there goes your theory. As is Beyonce who gets a ton… Read more »

Kate and Beyoncé get hated on for their media personas. a lot of people here (myself included) will rant and moan about their personalities but in the end begrudgingly say something like “but she looks nice here” or something. i rip on Beyoncé quite a lot, but i still admit she has (in my eyes) an enviable figure. others sometimes really DON’T like their figures, period. and there’s nothing wrong with that either. that being said, there is a bias against women with straighter figures on this site, particularly when they happen to be top-heavy and “softer”. there are exceptions,… Read more »

I can’t speak for everyone but I really find Adriana beautiful. Women who are slim, but not too skinny, with beautiful faces are praised most here (like Emily Didonato) regardless of body shape. Many apple-shaped beauties like Doutzen Kroes get much praise because they’re slim and fit, while pear shapes over size 6 get plenty of hateful comments, people even said Erin Heatherton’s legs were too big (not just Natalia lol). I think the hate toward Kate is partly because she’s ‘soft’, not the lean toned look we’ve come to expect from models. And of course some people just don’t… Read more »

i personally think Erin’s thighs are big, not “too” big, but bigger than i would expect. she has that skinny kind of face, you know? the type you would assume belongs on a skinnier body. the only qualm i really have with her body is that i’d assume she has a bigger bum. i agree that pears over a certain size are ripped on though. but think of Nina Dobrev. when i saw her photos i though she’d be eaten alive here, but people were very kind to her. if she had a similar figure to Kate’s or a less… Read more »

I reckon her beautiful, she has memorable features and a lovely face. Her body has its pros and cons, but it just lamely said “makes her interesting” and “unique”. “Nobody wants to be perfect, perfect is boring”. But those things are true, at least for me. I like people with character, many models just aren’t interesting to me, but the few who are, are extraordinary to my eyes. Kate is not extraordinary but definitely not blank.

If Kate Upton is fat, I am obese.

That is all.

I hate how women judge each other negatively, yet they themselves don’t want to be judged that way.
I think she’s beautiful and we all have our preference but I think a lot of women are great as long as they are confident with themselves.

Bottom line: haters are going to hate.

great attitude to have. I like her look in this shoot! Photoshopped? Sure! Aren’t all magazine spreads though?! She looks fab in that green dress. Really vibrant, sophisticated and stunning.
