Kate Upton has weathered her fair share of critics in her brief career thus far, including an incident early this year in which Victoria’s Secret runway caster Sophia Neophitou cruelly said of the then-teenager’s look, “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.” (Ever more depressing is the fact that some people think she’s fat, even likening her to, yes, a “squishy brick.”) And yet all signs point to Upton having the last laugh in this ongoing crusade: she scored two high-fashion magazine covers in the past two months alone, including the first issue of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, but her biggest upmarket break yet will hit the newsstands this week when she stars in a full Vogue spread.

Kate Upton is hot. She is also everywhere. So are her breasts, which are often the focal point of her various photoshoots, but usually her nipples (nipples take a photo from SFW to NSFW for some reason) are covered. I imagine this is very frustrating for pervy photographer Terry Richardson, as that guy never met a nipple he didn’t want to uncover and photograph. And while some of his racier photos may never make it to print, he’s always happy to post those outtakes to his personal website, which is how I came to become quite familiar with Upton’s nipples this morning. NSFW versions after the jump, if you’re interested. Keep reading »
The verdict is still out on whether Kate Upton will be able to transition smoothly from lad mag favorite to glossy cover star, but I think it’s safe to say that the odds are in her favor: she had a small (fully clothed!) feature in Vogue back in June, and Olivier Zahm (though not exactly the arbiter of good taste) tapped her for this month’s Jalouse. Most promising of all, Carine Roitfeld has so much faith in the sexy Sports Illustrated girl that she even placed her front and center on the first issue of her new magazine. Keep reading »
This week, high fashion mag Jalouse released its latest issue — with boob-tastic Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton striking a pose. Kate, who manages to channel Anna Nicole Smith (in a good way!), typically ends up with most of her clothes off, so it’s nice to see her explore her haute couture side. What do you think of her Jalouse look? If it’s not really your thing, then check out Kate’s other covers above!
It took hardly any time at all for Carine Roitfeld to find her footing outside of the Condé Nast empire. The fashion writer and stylist departed suddenly from Vogue Paris in 2010 following a ten-year tenure as editor-in-chief, citing a desire to concentrate on personal projects outside of the notorious magazine’s “gilded bird cage” (though rumors of internal discord abounded). In the two years since her resignation, Carine has stayed true to her vow that leaving the lofty post would not be the death knell of her career; in fact, with numerous freelance styling credits (including two Chanel campaigns), a large-format photo book, and a MAC collection to her name, the iconic Parisian has risen quite impressively from the ashes of her former title.
