Kate Upton Channels Marilyn Monroe For Vogue Germany

Anyone who ever said that curvy Kate Upton wasn’t high fashion enough for Vogue was just proved dead wrong… for the third time. Famed photographer Bruce Weber just shot the blonde bombshell for the German edition of Vogue in a summer-themed editorial, which showcases Kate sunbathing in a pool, relaxing under a tree, sitting on the roof of a car and riding horseback. Did we mention that the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model used to be a competitive horseback rider at the national level? Kate Upton definitely has more talents than she’s given credit for.

Our favourite thing about Kate Upton is that she’s as comfortable shooting for Sports Illustrated in barely there bikinis and getting saucy for Carl’s Jr. commercials as she is modeling for some of the biggest names in photography and fashion. In the modeling world, it’s usually rather standard that curvy girls do the swimsuit calendars and Victoria’s Secret catalogue while the more waif like models do the haute couture runways and the fashion magazine editorials. Kate is one of those special beauties who is able to break down that barrier and prove that a beautiful woman can really sell anything. The American model actually just landed her first ever British Vogue cover for the January 2013 issue, which hits newsstands on December 10. British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman said her choice of Kate for the first cover of 2013 had was simple: “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,” said Shulman in her editor’s letter. “When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!”
