Kate Upton Channels Marilyn Monroe for Vanity Fair's 100th!

Kate Upton Channels Marilyn Monroe for Vanity Fair's 100th!

Kate Upton channels her inner Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine’s 100th anniversary issue, on newsstands September 10.

The 21-year-old model, who was photographed for the feature by Annie Leibovitz, talked to the magazine about being shot down in the business.

“I’m not going to name names, but one agency told me, ‘You’re too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.’ I was so offended! I’ve never been so offended! I was like, ‘You know that you’re in America, right?’ And it wasn’t ‘American models’—it was ‘American women are lazy,’ period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot,” Kate said.

    vanity fair doesn’t know anything about vanity anymore from what it looks like… the sympathy train needs to end, she’s nothing iconic.

    Overrated and annoying . Id rather see real models like Naomi, Gisele and Christy.

    Holy airbrushed!! That looks nothing like her. Looks more like Amber Heard – who is WAY prettier. I don’t get how Kate is a model… Did she sleep with some really influential photographers or something?

    This is the worst impression of Marilyn Monroe ever. Seriously they didn’t even try. Kate Upton will be forgotten by the time some new “model” with even bigger boobs comes along and steals her thunder.

    Deecent retro cover wasted on her. Honestly you want an icon get someone iconic in the making. Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain etc or you want an iconic model try some of the other much harder working girls. Gisele, Candice, Miranda etc. Over her and her exposure. She hasn’t worked in thr industry long or hard enough.

    She gets the covers cause she sells. Simple as. The lovers of foreign drug addled models and Russian ********** on the internet cannot process why an American they detest has appeal, where it counts on the actual newstands, they will never understand

    As usual, her only talents are on display.

    Aren’t Marilyn Monroe fetishes, like, really 2000s? Stop trying to make her happen again.

    But, her face on that cover. Did she get into a fight with someone in the art department? Btw, the Monroe comparison is ridiculous.

    Still can’t believe she’s a model. She’s good for things like Sports Illustrated but it’s a pity that she’s in Vogue and is “the model of the year”.

    she’s a cute girl, very average, which is why she is probably likeable. not supermodel material imo, but model-pretty for sure
