Model Kate Upton rose to fame mostly because of her voluptuous body, so different from what we’re accustomed to in the fashion world today. Between all her skinny colleagues, Upton is a breath of fresh air, and magazines like Sports Illustrated take advantage of that to the max. The model managed to get into the high fashion world, covering Vogue USA, UK and Italia and has been named one of the sexiest women of last year by both models.com and AskMen. About the transition, Upton said: “It’s very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them.” More recently, the bombshell striped down to her bra in a fashion shoot for V Magazine, with a retro influence from the 60s. The 20 year old apparently has acting skills, too, or, as the photographer Sebastian Faena puts it: “Kate was an actress during this shoot. A good one, very sensitive and played the part of a confused, kept housewife with irony. She has star quality. She is like nobody else today.”
