Kate Upton Photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue, June 2013

Top model Kate Upton is finally on the cover of American Vogue. Lensed by Mario Testino, Kate is showcased in the June 2013 issue of Vogue, wearing Stella McCartney, Hermès, Jason Wu and Dolce & Gabbana. The article, entitled ‘The Kate Upton Effect: America’s Favorite Bombshell,’ is written by Lizzie Widdicombe and discusses Kate’s meteoric rise to fame courtesy of social media.

“The fact that Upton has become our Girl of the Moment is all the more remarkable given that she’s done it in her own digital-age way. She wasn’t championed, early on, by a photographer like Steven Meisel or David Sims. Riccardo Tisci didn’t put her on the runway at Givenchy à la Joan Smalls. She even bypassed the Victoria’s Secret runway show—which has proved to be a launching pad for the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Miranda Kerr. Instead, Upton has accumulated Sports Illustrated covers and buzzy television ads and—above all—has made canny use of social media.”

“I love my body. It’s what God gave me,” Upton says, adding that she’s “so proud” of her boobs.
