The sexy siren is back! After slaying the kittens on the cover of Vogue’s June 2013 issue, Kate Upton wins on the September issue of Elle.
Looking smoking in a fire engine red strapless Lanvin dress dripping in gold and complementing blond hair, little Miss Upton is killing.
Check out some deets from the interview below:
On the fallout from her first Sports Illustrated cover:
“After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I’m not a toy, I’m a human. I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your shit out.”
On the tiny tattoo of a cross on the inside of her finger:
“I was at a photo shoot and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took [my necklace] away. I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want [a cross] with me, at all times.”
On people treating her like a “dumb blonde:”
“People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb you’re not even going to know.”
