The rumors were true!
Carine Roitfeld's highly anticipated CR Fashion Book is here! And the curvy Kate Upton scored the cover!
Shot by Bruce Weber, the cover is just as much about the baby chicks as it is about Kate's, umm, boobs.
Since this issue’s theme is rebirth, we’re a bit confused about the choice, since she’s so young and childless, but Roitfeld explained:
"I didn’t want a normal model. I wanted someone with a sensual body, someone who could be a mother for all these babies. Honestly, from the first time I worked with her – I saw in Sports Illustrated some pictures she did with Terry Richardson. I would not say she’s a controversial model, but she’s not a classic model. And I like that. From the first time I met her when I did the story, she was so cool, and so good with all the baby dolls – I thought it was the best choice. It felt so natural for her to hold babies, baby pigs, baby lambs, baby donkeys. Maybe people will be surprised that she was my first cover, but you know, I always like to surprise people."
Hmm… sounds like a
barrell barnyard of fun!
Whatever Roitfeld’s reasoning was, we don’t care. We’re just happy to see Kate being accepted in the fashion world, big boobies and all! Lolz!
