Upton, who was photographed by photographer Matt Jones, is channeling her inner ’60s child on the cover as she wears a gorgeous printed Prada coat. She’s also wearing a black body suit from the designer (we think!) that shows off her incredible legs. ELLE UK says it prepared Upton for their biggest fashion issue of year by also dressing her in new collections by designers like Burberry, Chloe and Dior — oh, la la!
Speaking of oh, la la! The 22-year-old opened up about her incredible body, growing up in Florida and how the image of beauty is a bit different there. “You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought,’Yessss!'” Upton said. “And then people say: ‘Oh, wow, you’re healthy.’ And you’re like, ‘Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!'”
We imagine it’s getting a bit old for her that her body gets brought up in every.single.interview she does. At times, we feel like that’s all we read about when it comes to Kate Upton — does she like her body? She loves her boobs! She hates her boobs! While we love Upton (her body), we really wish we people would stop asking her about it… She’s happy with what she has, let’s move on! Do you agree?
