KATE UPTON is Vogue's June cover star. Photographed by Mario Testino in the Caribbean, Upton is as sun-kissed and gorgeous as the season itself - and in the accompanying interview talks to contributing editor, and fellow cover girl, Alexa Chung about the impact of her much-talked-about body on the industry.
"It's weird that in the press they'll be like, your biggest fight was with the industry and the designers, and I'm like, no, my biggest fight was with my agents, trying to get them to sign me into the castings," Upton says. "I thought, how I'm going to come out of this will be an example for girls."
Testino photographs the Florida native as we know her best, showcasing the season's sportiest swimwear, while on the cover she channels a Fifties siren - not the first time that such a comparison has been made.
"I always thought Marilyn was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her," she tells Chung. "But I feel like nowadays it's easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don't think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don't have that."
