We knew Anna Wintour had hopped aboard the Kate Upton fan train earlier this summer when the Sports Illustrated covergirl landed a small profile in the July issue of Vogue, accompanied (somewhat curiously, given the season) by a photo of the model clad in leather and fur.
Well, Wintour is clearly more of a Cat Daddy aficionado than we thought, because Upton now has a seven-page spread in the November issue. Steven Meisel photographed the buxom blonde for “The New Girl” in classic American sportswear by the likes of Donna Karan, Michael Kors, and Ralph Lauren. The photo captions also tout her Vogue-worthiness as an “accomplished equestrienne” with a “fresh, comfortable-in-your-skin attitude” and, of course, “a ridiculously sexy bikini body.”
“She became famous at eighteen for wearing bikinis,” the glossy concedes. ” — On beaches, on skateboards, on magazine covers. At 20, she’s becoming more famous for wearing Kors, Vuitton, and Ralph.” And between this, her CR cover, Jalouse spread, and recent red carpet appearances, it’s actually starting to look like that may be true!
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
