Kate Upton has a new spread in V Magazine’s latest issue, and she shows us that in addition to vixen, she can also do classy and vintage.
During the shoot, photographer Sebastian Faena rained praises on Upton, saying, “Kate was an actress during this shoot. A good one, very sensitive and played the part of a confused, kept housewife with irony. She has star quality. She is like nobody else today.”
Alexandra Shulman, the head of the British Vogue, spoke about Upton’s appeal to everyone, saying, “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. 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!”
Kate Upton has previously gotten notices for her ‘dramatic flair’, and she has slowly started gaining more notice as a strong fashion model as opposed to just a swimsuit model. Given the positive response to her Vogue cover, more and more magazines have started featuring Upton, and her popularity has steadily been rising over the last couple of months.
