American model Kate Upton (20 years old) has been printed as the face of British Vogue for JANUARY 2013. Kate proves that curvier woman have a place in high fashion as she poses in a white sleeveless figure-hugging dress. Coming from being a swimsuit model, this look is pretty suttle and natural, not her usual cleavage bursting shoot.
Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman says,
“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 said in her editor’s letter. “When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!”
