London, Oct 19: Kate Upton, who was dismissed as a girl with “the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy” by Victoria’s Secret earlier this year, has landed herself a second Vogue shoot.
Hailed as “The New Girl” by the fashion glossy, Upton, 20, was shot by top photographer Steven Meisel in a backless black one-piece with damp, tousled hair.
The rest of the seven-page spread sees her model classic sportswear in a crisp palette of red, black, white and blue.
But the model, who shot to fame at the start of this year after landing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, has no plan to embrace the super-skinny high fashion look.
“I don’t want to starve myself,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl. You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself,” she said.
In fact, she plans to use her raised public profile to be an ambassador for a healthy approach to body image.
“I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable,” she said.
“Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence,” she added.
Upton first appeared in Vogue in June, and many fans were surprised to see her heavily wrapped up in a long coat and over-knee boots. (ANI)
