Kate Upton is super sexy in a one piece bathing suit in this new feature from Vogue‘s November 2012 issue, on newsstands October 23.
Here’s what the 20-year-old model had to share with the mag, which features cover gal Rihanna:
On learning about the modeling industry: “Coming from a sports-fanatic family, I really didn’t know a lot about the small fashion circles. When I was able to accomplish that, I slowly started figuring things out—and when I have a goal. I do everything to accomplish it.”
On keeping a good body image: “I don’t want to starve myself. I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl. You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.”
On feeling good about herself and others: “When I lived in Florida, the swimsuit was the key wardrobe piece. I lived ten minutes from the beach, but I never sat there and said, ‘I want to be every man’s fantasy.’ It wasn’t a big deal to be in a bathing suit. Now, whenever girls come up to me saying they’re happy to see I am confident about my body, it makes me feel good that I am contributing in a way among people my age, people who could be my friends.”
