Cute model Kate Upton makes the cover of American Vogue, where she was declared the 'Hottest Supermodel on Earth'. In the interview Upton says, "The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great." Kate was responding to news bits about her body image coming across as 'porky' or 'fat'. Upton's supporters says that her body is simply curvy and beautiful.
Kate Upton will turn 21 in June and has been modelling since she was 15. With her curvy body Kate has mostly done lingerie and swimsuit modelling. She became popular as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, and got their cover twice in a row for 2012 and 2013. Kate Upton told GQ, "I grew up in Florida riding horses, so the majority of my life I was either in boots or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me ..."

In the right photo Kate Upton lifts her bust, arches her back, and sticks out her bum, slimming down her waist visually. People looked at her runway photos and termed her fat. With her curvy body image, and her confidence, Kate got a good female following and she tells British Vogue: "I never imagined that I would be in a position to be a role model. I just focused on being healthy and being the best that I could be. I'm happy to be seen as a good example. If I can help and influence girls who are going through body-image issues then I think that's amazing."
Kate Upton is 5'10" tall, a natural brunette, and has body measurements of 33-25-36....based on her early model profile as a teenager.

Kate's body has bloomed into womanly curves, and her face has filled out, after she turned 18. As of now Kate Upton has body measurements of 34D-25-36, which means she developed a generous cleavage while maintaining her curvy bottom.
Upton told the NY Mag: "I came from a family that was all around sports, so for modeling I went to Sports Illustrated, because that’s what was in my house. We didn’t have fashion magazines lying around. I didn’t grow up in a big city, so I just wasn’t aware of it." And on body image issues Kate Upton tells the mag: "It's really motivating to know that I'm helping people look at their life in a healthy way, just by living my life by example. For girls there’s always pressure. Even if I was in college, or if I was doing a different job. Anywhere in life, for girls there’s pressure to keep your weight and to keep yourself feeling and looking good."
Kate Upton diet and fitnessKate Upton had told the NY Mag in 2011 that she never tried crash diets because: "My schedule just doesn't allow it. I never know where I'm coming from, or what's happening, or how long the plane ride will be. I always try and work out and eat healthy throughout my life so I don't have to do anything drastic before shoots." Upton is still too young to drink alcohol legally!
But before her second Sports Illustrated cover, Kate Upton decided that she needed to tighten up her body a little and hired celebrity trainer David Kirsch. Kate told Vogue that David changed her diet, cutting out junk food and red meat, increasing the veggies and adding chicken and fish. Growing up on a ranch, Kate Upton rode horses and was into sports, and for her exercise program David Kirsch told the NY Mag: "We did a lot of boxing, kick boxing, and stability ball work. We also did a lot of interval training, like wind sprints on the treadmill and outside....She's got curves. There was no way I was going to 'uncurve' her. At the end of the day, the objective was not to look like a runway model, but tighten up what she's got to look as amazing as she can."
