Kate Upton Covers 'GQ' July 2012

Kate Upton Covers 'GQ' July 2012

Kate Upton gets patriotic in a red, white, and blue bikini on the cover of GQ‘s July issue, on newsstands June 26.

Here’s what the 20-year-old model had to share:

On a recent wardrobe malfunction: “For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier – it was so embarrassing.”

On having mostly men Twitter followers: “I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why male followers like me.”

On relationships (she’s been linked to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez): “I’m going to be less emotionally involved this year.”

    She’s pretty but this is a little over the top. Too provocative for my taste.

  • pat

    cheap and overrated.

  • hmde

    Since when are Penthouse models allowed to be on GQ covers?

  • beerbelly

    the standing up one is so photoshopped. she is not that long and lean by any means and its funny because she is straining her face so much. a true model does not have to strain and suck in their beer gut, LOL horrible model!

  • Notamodel

    She has no waist! and they shopped her tummy pooch off.

  • bobby-ray

    she’s hot!

  • Adult

    She’s lucky shes at the best modeling agency in the world (IMG) and she’s lucky she has the best modeling agent in the world (Ivan Bart) otherwise Playboy would definitely be her route.

  • Delilah

    Probably te most disgusting cover in the whole history of GQ.

  • Adriana

    she’s painful to watch, so vapid. She always reminds me of Miss Piggy in the face.

  • scarlett

    Maybe if she started wearing swimsuits that actually covered her boobs, she wouldn’t have as many malfunctions.

  • ewwww

    More trash from Kate Upton. She is cheat and tacky. Overrated. If it wasn`t for her already shaggy boobs and the way too small bikini tops she wouldn`t be working as a model.

  • blah

    her comments seem like that of someone trying to attract guys on a dating site – its honestly disappointing that women have to act like this. I mean if she wants to have her bo*obs out then go ahead, men are half naked on most covers anyway but her answers are just embarrassing for every woman. Grow up, act and and respond like a 20 yr old and maybe you’ll get respect.

  • feelsorry

    honestly I would be embarrassed to have the male followers she has…I saw them on the SI swim facebook page making vulgar remarks and 95% of them were 65+,overweight,and balding with stained t-shirts. gross! Not one “hot” guy, lol. I wouldn’t want that to be looking at me half nekkid. ick.

  • Nessa

    She is the most budget, trashy model ever. Can’t wait for he 15 minutes to be up.

  • yoe

    Idiot, wear your size and you won’t lose your top. But she probably enjoys people watching her naked, she’s one sick perverted girl.

  • Socheap

    I’m all for healthy,sexy models, I mean Cindy Crawford and the 90s models were very beautiful and sexy but they still managed to look like supermodels, not penthouse pets. Cindy even did Playboy but her shoot looked so tasteful, like it could have been right out of the pages of Vogue. this one just doesn’t have one classy bone in her body. cheap,vulgar and trashy.

  • kekwd

    butta face

  • liz

    wtf? she’s only 20? and my gosh, she looks like a porn star. not just that her boobs are hanging out but that ever-present slutty look to her face. i like the victoria’s secret models so much better. this girl just looks like trash, sorry

  • believe

    Jealous much, ladies? I am, too. She is gorgeous top to bottom and down to earth, too.

  • Amour

    That cover is going to have a lot of people upset it’s very suggestive, She’s beautiful and it’s summer time so I’ll let her live.

  • Elizabeth


  • AnnC

    this girl needs to stop being a bitchy

  • Lottie

    Did they have to make the July 4th cover so tacky and trashy? Put pics like that inside the mag so people who don’t want to see it don’t have to while standing in line at the store.

  • sanfran

    No offense meant to her cause I’m definately not one to be jealous of someone I don’t know and won’t meet. But this woman reminds me of a model at a car show. I just find her incredibly cheesy. I guess one’s interpretation of beauty is a really subjective thing.

  • hrlyrate

    I prefer more classy/sophisticated looking models like Christy Turlington. Kate can clean Christy’s floors. yuck so trashy.


    blah -.- all I see are boobs

  • joseph jager

    shut up haters ! shes super HOOOT

  • Angel

    Women are so jeallouss..she’s beautiful!That’s it!!!!!

  • frisbee

    What’s with the hate? What has she done?

  • food 4 thought

    That is the grossest cover I’ve ever scene. The ultimate in tacky.

  • lily

    She’s only 20? I’m shocked i thought she was at least 26!

  • Shannon

    In Southern California girls who look like her are a dime a dozen…what is so special about her that she’s getting so much attention!? Just don’t get it

  • Helen

    She is very cheap,even cheaper than Lindsey and Kim k

  • HOT!!!


  • q

    Leave her alone. 40 year old Aniston did an naked cover for GQ and a lot of you woman thought it was the greatest thing.

  • Effy

    She sounds rather uneducated.

  • CesarPortugal

    she is hot, young and beautiful.

    and also one of the most irreverent young girls of modeling

    that´s why she is the cover of GQ

    she need time to grow and mature but until then let her be free, funny and hot.

  • CesarPortugal

    there are some old, fat and boring ladies posting here.

    remember Jen Aniston 40 years old?

    like another post said, she was NAKED and trying to be hot and young, making full of herself and looking like a porn star and i don´t see this kind of aversion and repulsion.

    don´t try to be too much moralists. she is young and beautiful.period


    Oh, I get it GQ, that’s supposed to be a girl (who’s still a teen) sucking a d*ck!! Thanks Huvane bros. First we suffer ol Maniston stripping at 50 in a tie on your cover courtesy the one huvane bro, her pr agent stephen huvane, and now the opposite end of the spectrum.

  • commonsense

    If Gisele had done the same pose she wouldn’t have looked so cheap. There’s just an essence about this girl that makes everything she does or wears come across as crass. Unfortunate.

  • Jan

    Um, I think they got confused with which magazine they were shooting for.. This is not Playboy..


    Perfect woman is here…clone her now

  • bahha black sheep

    @Jan:obviously you don’t read playboy…otherwise she be wearing nothing

  • frisbee

    Ah, I get it now. She’s the village sl*t and needs to be shamed to protect ‘family values’.

  • ali

    sexy beautiful vey tall
    she looks amazing – looks like merilin monroe

  • Dave Franco

    She’s 19 people. She’ll learn. As a Male, I’ve got a crush on her but she is everywhere nowadays and the media can’t stop pushing her name. Also, Terry Richardson is a perv. Dude is shameful photographer and knows these types of pics will make him money.

  • kingkayski

    One look at this GQ cover ,you would think you are looking at porn DVD cover.

  • liz

    okay, boobs being out is maybe something i can deal with. but the mouth open ready to suck the popsicle? just gross. if she was holding the popsicle away from her face and giving a close mouthed smile or something it’d look a lot less slu*tty.

  • Sara

    Woman who don’t like another woman who is considered attractive are not always jealous trolls! Beautiful woman in magazines are a dime a dozen, but most of them don’t ooze trash the way this one does. I think this girl posing the way she does in her tiny bikinis looks far sluttier and cheaper than most women would completely naked.

  • ex nihilo

    classy… in that ‘slap-slap-slurp-lick-don’t-call-me-later’ in a rest stop bathroom kinda way.
