Kate Upton Covers 'Elle' September 2013

Kate Upton Covers 'Elle' September 2013

Kate Upton is super sexy in Lanvin on the cover of Elle magazine’s September 2013 issue, on newsstands August 20.

Here’s what the 21-year-old model had to share with the mag:

On being treated 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.”

On the fallout after her 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 dating: “I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry. I’m just having fun. Obviously I have a very busy schedule at this time in my life, and I don’t put relationships as a priority.”

    Kate Upton is pretty as usual. At this point I don’t care who’s on the cover of any magazine. As long as it’s not an Armenian reality star. I never buy a magazine if it has anyone from that trashy talentless famous-for-nothing family on the cover. ANYONE but them. They’re the reason I AVOID magazine stands. The sooner people stop replying to articles about them…. the sooner they will fade away into the filthy hole they crawled out of.

    We’ve double SI cover, had Vogue US, UK, Italia, Brazil
    Now Elle US September Issue. Werk gurl

  • WOW

    How is this girl famous, how? All I see is boobs, a photoshopped body and a cute face…and when she is not photoshopped, lord have mercy…

  • Duh.

    @chair: That’s great… wonderful… Totally off topic…find another place to rant.

    Damn perfect

  • Jordy

    I can’t stand her and I think her quote on people thinking she’s an idiot is because she puts off that persona. In every interview she is totally airy and makes stupid comments. She puts off this egotistical attitude. I’m not surprised people treat her like that.

    About the second quote … she posed for SI’s Swimsuit Issue, what did she expect? When you pose in a teeny tiny swimsuit (or half of one) in a sports magazine with mostly male subscribers/readers (who obviously are not looking through that issue to buy swimsuits), then you know what kind of crowd you’re catering to. If she had gotten that kind of reaction for posing for something like this Elle cover, fine, I understand her feeling terrible, but to cry “objectification” over being an SI Swimsuit cover is crazy. And yeah, she was so upset that she went back and did the cover again.

  • Amy


    Exactly. She’s made a career off of showing off her breasts. LOL. She’s not a real model. I’m surprised she hasn’t done Playboy yet.

  • Nikki

    I can’t believe Kate is a year younger than me. She looks 26 or 27 here.

  • Yar

    She looks pretty when she’s using clothes that fit her.

  • Michael

    She looks average. Her body is ugly. She sounds annoying and stupid. She will never be a supermodel. I rather see the original supermodels from the 70s-early 90s now than see her. She is overrated. Linda Evangelista didn’t have to rely on her sagging breasts! She actually is photogenic and beautiful. She is intelligent and classy. Not the typical average girl who is boring and just want to be a sex symbol showing off her cleavage every chance she gets. No offense, but her 15 minutes will go by fast. She’s not high fashion. Just something for men to look at in magazines while they j e r k off!

  • Jordan

    @Christine Derrel:

    major respect Christine for being honest.

    all the girls on the kate posts are just haters cause they know when their boyfriend is doing them he’s thinking about kate!!

  • Sean

    Straight male here and she does nothing for me. She has a great body and pretty face but she is just blad. I’d rather see a really hard working gorgeous high fashion model like Candice S, Miranda, Karlie, Joan Smalls etc get a US mag cover over her. She isn’t considered a supermodel. She hasn’t had a career that some other incredible girls have had. Such a shame that America is still obsessed with that whole girl next door look.

    One thing I will say is good at least that a model does get a US cover. It’s so rare.

  • LMAO

    Yet another Upton cover that’s been photoshoped to hell and the high heavens.


    Oh Boo Hoo! I have a tear running down my leg. This chick is so friggen annoying. She makes more money then most woman could ever dream about and she is complaining. She needs to try going to a real job. She was born beautiful by the grace of god not by anything she ever did. Instead of complaining about it she should take advantage of all the doors that her looks have opened for her. There are many beautiful woman that men drool over and yet they manage to turn it to their own advantage to help others. Look at Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Christy Turlington and many more that we’re born beautiful but are known for much more then their looks. These woman have had long careers and have been huge supporters of many great causes to help others. So pull your bra straps up, shut up and do something good with your fame. Otherwise shut up and go away.

  • Um

    Is she for real? She is trying to sound sincere and humble but she actually sounds arrogant and annoying. She loves herself way too much and is basically throwing it in people’s faces. Have more humility!
