And what beautiful curves they are!
The 22-year-old supermodel revealed how she viewed the female body growing up in the September issue of Elle UK, saying:
"When I first started modeling, I was a normal catalogue model, then, I became a woman, and I was really excited … Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits … You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, 'Yessss!'"
Aww! Well, we wouldn’t go so far to say that people with un-curvy frames are ‘ugly,’ but Kate’s is definitely flawless anyway!
However, once Miz Upton got those curves, she struggled with how people saw her, explaining:
"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 sh*t out."
The curse of being beautiful! But at least she stood up for herself like that!
It’s just great to see someone with an extra healthy body showing girls that you don’t have to starve to be gorgeous!
