Garnering attention the world over for her girl-next-door looks, feminine curves, and life-embracing personality, Kate Upton
is on the rise in the world of high fashion. In an industry dominated by skeletal models, the 21-year-old starlet’s curvaceous frame is once again sparking a heated debate of body image among fashion’s elite. Vogue’s June cover shoot brought her voluptuous figure to the center of media attention; this time prompting Vogue’s Editor-in Chief Anna Wintour to speak up, “If the high-fashion world seems incapable of figuring out what to do with her…then that’s its loss.” The industry has long been in a battle over women’s sizes, from the days of heroin chic to the fame of plus size supermodels like Mia Tyler.
