The New Girl
















































(ps: vogue.com)
Kate Upton by Steven Meisel for Vogue US November 2012

Let's talk Upton, shall we?
I've never hated her, but I haven't exactly been her biggest fan either. Kate Upton is a beautiful woman, whom I thought would never make it past GQ. And when I heard rumors of Kate being photographed for my beloved Vogue, I can't say that I was excited. However, maybe all it took was Steven Meisel. And maybe all I needed was to see her in Vogue to actually believe it could be good. Because it's good, real good.

I do believe this editorial is Vogue showing us that they aren't all talk - that they really can do healthy bodies in their magazine. One can argue that there is still Photoshop going on, which I am not denying. But as someone who's body type is much closer to Kate's than to Karlie's and Caroline's, and as someone who is busty and not always proud of it, because of the way clothes sometimes look on me - I say thanks to Vogue, and I hope they keep this up. I would love to see more. xx

  1. This is all so true! I think, that magazines are supposed to show beauty- whatever it is. I'm also not a fan of her, but she looks beautiful on these pictures and this is the best. I think, that fashion industrie has changed a bit- it's not like it used to be, that all the models were pushed to be anorexic, but it's also not perfect. I think, that sessions like this should be shown more

  3. Magazines have to include bigger size models.. Maybe then there will be less starving teens. These pictures prove that not only stick-thin girls can look beautiful!
