Upton, who just turned 21 this month (June 10), was largely known as a swimsuit model before she was embraced by U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
She made her second appearance in the U.S. edition of Vogue last Fall in a seven-page fashion spread, clearly signaling that she’d made it into the exclusive supermodel club. She’s also appeared in Vogue editions in Germany and Italy.
Two years ago, Wintour joined fashion editors around the globe in a campaign to promote healthy models with proportional body weight in the fashion industry. Upton appears to be benefiting, not that she needs any special consideration.

Her voluptuous curves are world famous and she has a stunning, naturally beautiful face.
In the Vogue Brazil July issue, she models Miu Miu’s spring 2013 collection for photographer Henrique Gendre. Luis Fiod oversaw styling.
Upton covered the 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for the second year in a row, a feat no accomplished since Tyra Banks did it in 1996 and 1997. Upton landed her first SI cover in her second year of posing for the magazine.
The New York-based model also continues to work on her acting career. She’ll appear in “The Other Woman” a comedy starring Cameron Diaz, next year.
The July issue of Vogue hits newsstands today (June 28th). Check out Kate’s photos and be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for more on Miss Upton.
