Kate Upton's fashion star continues to rise, first with a starring role in CR Fashion Book, then with US Vogue spread, and now with a Vogue cover all her own—Vogue Italia, that is. The word "seductive" is emblazoned across her chest, which is wrangled by a Patricia Field patent leather bustier. Big hair and bright red lips accompany the not-so-subtle focus, for an overall "sensual" look, or as the mag puts it:
Sensuality is not only a question of silhouette: it is written in one's way of being, the way one move, the way one expresses oneself. And Kate Upton, with her strong and explosive femininity, Helmut Newton-style, is for sure an emblem of it.
