Do You Prefer Kate Upton Sexy or Seductive?

When she landed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover earlier this year, Kate Upton quickly became a household name — and a lightning rod for controversy over her sexuality and sadly, size.

Then last week, we saw a different side of the rising star thanks to Vogue Italia, which glammed her up Marilyn Monroe-style and photographed her for its November cover, with the word “SEDUCTIVE” plastered across her chest (subtle, eh?).

In an accompanying behind-the-scenes video (below), though, the young model is quite seductive, posing and, uh, writhing in a variety of chic looks while being photographed atop a New York City high-rise.

Much has been written lately (including in American Vogue) about her ability to do high fashion — can a buxom blonde girl hit the runway for, say, Valentino? — but this Vogue Italia spread shows she definitely has versatility as a model. So which do you prefer? Tell us: Do you like Upton sexy on Sports Illustrated, or seductive for Vogue Italia?

Anony on

I’m sure you’re way more attractive there, toots.

Katrina on

They call her hot?

Dustin on

She’s obviously a beautiful girl. I can see why many females would feel threatened by someone like Kate, and then say things like, “she is not attractive”. Seriously, take your insecurities elsewhere.

lilannie on

Neither, she is not attractive

Christal on

She’s very pretty either way, until you get to her legs. UGH sticks!!

steve on

She would be sexier without the cigarette smoking.
