Kate Upton Lands a Vogue Cover and Clarifies: 'They're Natural!'

It wasn’t so long ago that Kate Upton was rumored to have to buy her own ticket to the Met Gala, which is presided over by Vogue‘s Anna Wintour.

Just goes to show how much can change in a year — not only was Upton a guest at this year’s ball (though puzzlingly, she seemed to have missed the memo on the theme), but she landed one of the most coveted modeling gigs around: a Vogue cover.

In the June issue, on stands May 21, the blonde bombshell talks about her body and much more.

As a matter of fact, despite Vogue‘s own commentary on her curvy body last year, Upton shrugs off anyone who doesn’t appreciate her figure.

“The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size,” she says in the interview. “They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things.”

And plenty of people have no interest in changing her — in fact, Upton is the highest-ranking model on Maxim‘s just-announced Hot 100, and she’s landed two Sports Illustrated swimsuit covers in a row. And now that she’s got the Vogue seal of approval, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the future.

Check out Upton’s behind-the-scenes shoot video here, and tell us: What do you think of Upton’s big cover?

If I looked like that, I think that all my problems would disappear. I like her attitude too, she’s not full of herself. Oh, and I think that she probably eats food too, yay! Love Kate!
