Is it that time of year again already?
It’s been a sizzling hot summer for Kate Upton and her bikini body that’s been on the cover of multiple mags this past season. But now that the days are starting to get just a tad cooler, it could only mean one thing—OK, two—summer is almost over and it’s time for the September issues.
Seeing as how these issues are the biggest of the glossies, it only makes sense that the model-of-the-moment would nab at least one, and here she is, on the cover of ELLE UK.
Kate put away her swimsuits to don something a little more warm and fitting for fall: a geographic-print Prada coat. Inside, she shows off new-season designer digs by Burberry, Dior, and more, and talks about her body (of course), saying:
“When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model. Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty 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!'”
Be sure to read the rest of her interview when it hits stands August 1.
