Kate Upton shows off her curves in the November issue of Vogue Magazine. Curves that the’s very proud of, admitting she’s happy to be considered a role model for young women.
“I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable,” she told Vogue. “Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence.”
She claims she’s not interested in starving herself again. “I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl,” she added. “You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.”
Her Vogue spread has a seven-page photo shoot by famed photographer Steven Meisel, which includes the 20-year-old bombshell blonde in swimsuit attire.
Earlier this year, Upton was criticized by an anonymous blogger on the website SkinnyGossip.com trashing the model for having “huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition.”
The blogger later apologized for the “intentionally outrageous” post, but said she was merely expressing her opinion about her preferred body type.
Upton received an avalanche of support after the controversy.
Her personal trainer, David Kirsch, told Vogue that he’s one of her biggest fans.
“I have trained a lot of models and celebrities, and let me tell you she is so determined and willing to do whatever it takes,” he told the glossy. “She’s incredibly smart and driven.”
She looks beautiful! Love the pics!
