Kate Upton channels Marilyn Monroe in the latest Vanity Fair!

kate-upton-vf-marilyn4

Earlier this week we got our first look at Vanity Fair’s 100 year anniversary cover, which shows off Kate Upton obviously emulating Marilyn Monroe. Today we’re getting a look at the pictures inside the magazine, and they ARE beautiful. No doubt about that. She really does look like Marilyn as well. But for some reason – I’m finding the pictures very…. predictable. Marilyn is just too easy – the comparisons – are too obvious. Don’t you think?

Either way she’s gorgeous… Can’t deny that. More Marilyn Monroe Kate Upton after the jump! More »

Kate Upton lands the cover of Vanity Fair, is also named ‘Model of the Year’

Kate Upton lands the October cover of Vanity Fair (their 100 year anniversary issue), and has also been named her the 2013 Model of the Year. She’ll receive her award tomorrow at the Style Awards. I think she’s a good pick – more so than the likes of Gisele Bundchen. I like that Kate is thick – and more of what a “real woman” should look like. She’s not some bony supermodel, she has beautiful curves!

Kate has had a huge year, and people took notice!

As if anyone else could win!

Kate Upton has won the coveted title of 2013 Model of the Year. The buxom blond will formally accept the award at Wednesday night’s 10th Annual Style Awards in New York City.

The event, which kicks off New York Fashion Week, will celebrate the two-time Sports Illustrated model in all her bikini glory. Nicole Richie will be on hand to host the evening’s festivities.

And there’s no doubt that she’s had one heck of a busy year.

Between joining the likes of Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen as the face of jewelry retailer David Yurman, to filming future Hollywood blockbusters with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann over the summer, 2013 has been good to Upton.

It doesn’t come easily either…the blond has been working nonstop on her career since her first big break with her debut SI Swimsuit cover in 2011.

She’s even made the difficult transition from bikini model to high fashion starlet by gracing the covers of both American and Brazilian Vogue this year. Impressive!

But given the shots we’ve seen from her one of her many upcoming projects — a role in The Other Woman where she rocks itty-bitty bikinis — we’re not so sure she’s ready to completely retire her two-piece just yet!

Congratulations, girl!

What do you think about Kate being chosen as model of the year? Do you agree?

Kate Upton stuns on the September cover of Elle Magazine!

Kate Upton lands the September cover of Elle magazine, and she looks absolutely gorgeous!! She’s wearing a beautiful red dress by Lanvin. In her interview with the magazine, she opens up about being treated like a “dumb blonde,” confronting stereotypes, and even how she felt about that famous Sports Illustrated cover.

On people treating her like a “dumb blonde:”
“People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb you’re not even going to know.”

On the tiny tattoo of a cross on the inside of her finger:
“I was at a photo shoot and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took [my necklace] away. I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want [a cross] with me, at all times.”

On the fallout from her first Sports Illustrated cover:
“After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I’m not a toy, I’m a human. I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your s–t out.”

On dating (she’s rumored to be seeing Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy:
“I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry. I’m just having fun. Obviously I have a very busy schedule at this time in my life, and I don’t put relationships as a priority.”

I like the interview. I think she’s absolutely right about people looking at models like a piece of meat and not real people. That has to be hard, when you look like Kate looks. I imagine it must be hard to go out and have a normal night out. Men WOULD want to just touch you, treat you like a piece of meat.

I think the pictures from INSIDE the magazine are actually better than the cover. SEE MORE (HOTTER) PICTURES OF KATE AFTER THE JUMP! More »
