It's hard to imagine this is the same girl who started out the year in a teeny tiny bikini on the front of Sports Illustrated!
After snagging the cover of Vogue Italia, Kate Upton is moving on to bigger and better things, like the cover of British Vogue!
The boobilicious model graces the front of the mag's first issue of 2013 and she looks B-E-A-Utiful and classy.
Editor, Alexandra Shulman, didn't think twice about putting Kate on the January issue, explaining:
"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. 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!"
Heffalump! As in heffalumps and woozles? Bahaha!
We actually couldn’t agree with her more. Kate may have gotten her start by stripping down for the camera, but she's definitely proved she's more than just a bikini model.
