Kate Upton scores British Vogue cover shoot
Kate Upton, who has appeared in pin-ups for US Vogue twice, has scored a photoshoot for the magazine's British edition.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model has been picked by British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman to star on the cover of the style bible's January 2013 issue, the Telegraph reported.
"When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young woman who is not a stereotypical fashion model - although, let's face it, she's hardly a heffalump!" Shulman wrote in her editor's letter.
Indeed, 20-year-old Upton's physique doesn't make her an obvious candidate for a high fashion role: at 5'10" and with a generous 34C chest, her hips are some two and a half inches wider than that other famous Kate - Moss.
"It's very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them," Shulman added.
