Kate Upton takes the cover of British Vogue‘s January 2013 issue. The 20-year-old model was interviewed by fashion features director Sarah Harris for the issue.
“Growing up, she idolised Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum. In the flesh, this all-American beauty resembles a young Anna Nicole Smith or Marilyn Monroe; her face is very pretty and perfectly symmetrical,” the feature says.
“When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!,” photographer Alexandra Shulman told the mag.
