Kate Upton has every right to hold the title of a “supermodel.”

The 20-year-old has been in the public eye non-stop for quite some time now and has hit another milestone by appearing on the cover of the November issue of Vogue Italia.

Although she still has her chest as the main focus on the cover, we guess most photographers are going by the mantra “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  Although the cover may be “Seductive” as the magazine’s headline suggest, the pictures in the magazine, shot by Steven Meisel, are a lot closer to what you would expect from Vogue.

Kate also got a chance to speak to the magazine about topics ranging from her booming career to being a role model in the accompanying editorial spread.  Some stand out pint from the interview:

On her parents:
“The Uptons are very competitive. I definitely get my competitive instinct from my mom. My father called her Hoops [when they met playing intramural basketball at the University of Denver] because she was so good at it.”

On being healthy:
“I don’t want to starve myself. I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl. You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.”

On her lucrative career:
“I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable. Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence.”

On embracing her curves:
“You go shopping and you’re not the same size in every brand—­some look good on you and others don’t. When I lived in Florida, the swimsuit was the key wardrobe piece, I lived ten minutes from the beach, but I never sat there and said, ‘I want to be every man’s fantasy.’ It wasn’t a big deal to be in a bathing suit. Now, whenever girls come up to me saying they’re happy to see I am confident about my body, it makes me feel good that I am contributing in a way among people my age, people who could be my friends.”
