The Power of Seduction

Whilst New York City reels from the after effects of Hurricane Sandy, the fashion industry appears to have been side-swiped by a natural phenomenon of different kind in the guise of bombshell Kate Upton. Upton whose ample charms have been displayed with apparent gusto within the pages and on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, has been embraced into the realm of high fashion with appearances in the American editions of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar captured by Steven Meisel, Sebastian Kim, Norman Jean Roy and Terry Richardson. Upton also has a key supporter in former Paris Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld, who selected Upton to front the premiere issue of her new publication CR Fashion Book shot by Bruce Weber. Upton caps off what can only be described as a sensational year with Vogue Italia's November 2012 issue, nabbing the cover and an only-girl editorial lensed again by Meisel. "When Kate first came in, everyone at the agency thought I was crazy," recalls IMG Model Management's director Ivan Bart in an interview with the New York Times, "She wasn't fashion enough." Since signing Upton to IMG's books in 2010, Bart has successfully navigated her high fashion crossover, silencing industry naysayers and proving that a little va-va-voom and personality is all that's required.
