Kate Upton has a new interview with Jalouse Magazine, and in it she talks about fashion, the difference between doing bikini shoots and fashion shoots, and how she strives for success.
Talking about how doing swimwear ads versus fashion ads differ, she says, “It's funny, fashion shoots do not resemble at all swimwear shoots. Pose, I can do, but customer expectations are not the same. Everyone acts differently on the set. The bikini photos are for any American home. Fashion is for a unique group."
She also talks about the world of fashion being a ‘clique’, saying, “The world of fashion is a clique. What matters is not to be pretty, but different, to reunite all the characteristics of perfection, but in a staggered manner. This is what they want."
She does add that she thinks all girls want to be models [which some people may disagree with], especially when you’re in college – "All girls want to become models, especially when you're in college and the other girls are hard and nasty."
Upton also recently spoke about being considered every man’s ‘fantasy’, which she said she doesn’t necessarily agree with. Upton is slowly gaining popularity in the mainstream fashion world, despite being fuller sized than most fashion models in this day and age. Of course, appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated annual Swimsuit issue certainly helped in that. Now, it seems that she's really trying to do more high fashion shoots, especially with her recent appearance on the cover of Vogue Magazine.
