I was excited to see that Kate Upton has been tapped by Photographer Mario Testino for the cover of Vogue US for the June 2013 edition. Kate is one of my favorite models, she is gorgeous and actually looks like a human and not a walking bag of bones.

That said, I found it funny that some people are labeling her as curvy. Is she a little heavier than a lot of other top models, sure. But I think it’s a pretty big stretch to call her curvy. I mean look at these pictures, I don’t see a curve on her.

Kate is beautiful and stunning, but it’s pretty sad in my opinion when someone who is in way better shape that 80% of the country has to be labeled as “curvy” because she is a size or two larger than the skinniest of skinny models. I know I’m sort of beating a dead horse here with the whole model size vs real people size argument. But I just had to say something about her being labeled as curvy by some people. I mean sure by model standards she has a few more curves, but in the real world I think I would consider her thin to average at best, no where near what I would call a curvy person in the real world.

Anyways, back to the topic at hand. Kate is on the cover of the upcoming edition of Vogue. The images were shot by photographer Mario Testino and I absolutely love them. They don’t look to be too overly processed either, which is nice. I especially like that one with her in the horizontal striped dress/swimsuit thing (I am obviously not a stylist or fashionista lol). She looks absolutely stunning! Checkout the rest of the images from her feature below, or go and pickup the latest edition of Vogue when it hits the streets.
