American bombshell Kate Upton is the cover-girl of Vogue UK June 2014 issue. Peruvian photographer Mario Testino photographed Upton, for her second time on the cover of the British Vogue, as she’s best known, in season’s sultriest swimwear looks . On the cover Kate wears a 50’s style swimwear looking like a modern Marilyn Monroe.
Shot in a beautiful Caribbean surrounding the model turned actress talks to another famous girl,Alexa Chung , a contributor of the British magazine about ‘the impact of her much-talked-about body on the industry’ which helped her to get where she is.
“It’s weird that in the press they’ll be like, your biggest fight was with the industry and the designers, and I’m like, no, my biggest fight was with my agents, trying to get them to sign me into the castings,” Upton says. “I thought, how I’m going to come out of this will be an example for girls.”
“I always thought Marilyn was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her,” she tells Chung. “But I feel like nowadays it’s easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don’t think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don’t have that.”
