Kate Upton‘s up on the cover of Vogue U.K.‘s January 2013, but for once, we’re not focusing on how pretty the model looks. Because the first line of the profile the fashion features editor, Sarah Harris, has written about her steals the shows. “Standing at 5ft 10in, with her outsize bosoms and long slender legs, Kate Upton has a body that belongs to the supermodel era of modelling,” she writes. And honestly, “outsize bosoms” is the best phrase we’ve heard in a really long time! She continues with, “… In the flesh, this all-American beauty resembles a young Anna Nicole Smith or Marilyn Monroe; her face is very pretty and perfectly symmetrical (with the exception of that mole, so exquisitely placed to the right, it looks like it might have been drawn on by the modelling gods). She also has the ability, with the slightest of expressions, to flit with ease between girlishly wholesome and full-on sex. All things considered, it’s a knockout formula.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. But the person who says it best, out of us all, is the magazine’s editor, Alexandra Shulman, who nails it with, “When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!” And with that, she just handed us our new favourite word: heffalump.
