Well, Kate Upton has finally done it — the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model has landed her very first Vogue cover. The buxom blonde fronts Vogue Italia‘s November issue, which is no small fashion feat, especially for a model once deemed “too obvious” for the likes of Victoria’s Secret.
The 20-year-old has really risen through the ranks of the fashion world since fronting Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue last year. Upton has booked a a slew of covers and no shortage of editorials, including two for American Vogue. The cover of Vogue Italia marks a seriously noteworthy accomplishment for the model — editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani is known for her controversial spreads and high-fashion shoots — and begs the question: will a U.S. Vogue cover follow? Only Anna Wintour knows.
