The New Girl
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
