The Kate Debate - Kate Upton

Sports Illustrated's modelling phenomenon Kate Upton achieves the unimaginable this month by scoring her second solo British Vogue Cover. The voluptuous blonde bombshell is captured by photographer Mario Testino cavorting in the surf at the Amanyara Resort in Turks & Caicos. Upton braves the turquoise waters in bold neoprene swimwear by Fendi, Kenneth Cole, H&M, and Tommy Hilfiger accessorised with scuba gear and sunglasses courtesy of Fashion Editor Lucinda Chambers. The Dream Team is complete with Tom Pecheux and James Pecis on hand for hair and make-up ensuring that Upton is the very splitting image of "Venus Rising". Since debuting in Sports Illustrated's 2011 Swimsuit Issue, the twenty-one year old Florida native has turned the fashion world on its head with cover appearances for Vanity Fair, American Elle, Jalouse, V Magazine, Muse, CR Fashion Book, and the American, British, Italian, Spanish, and Brasilian editions of Vogue. Upton leads the current generation of social media savvy models whose clever use of Twitter, Istagram et al. have extended their network and influence beyond the fashion world. Upton's status as the supermodel to the masses has been buoyed by lens time with Inez Van Lamsweerde, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Sebastian Faena, Annie Leibovitz, Alasdair McLellan, and Bruce Weber.
