The 22-year-old model and actress graces the September issue of Elle U.K., out on newsstands August 1. For the shoot, Kate covers up in fall threads including a black turtleneck, a mod-inspired Prada jacket and inside the mag, an oversize fur coat thing that looks more like a very chic slanket, if you ask us.
Kate opened up about growing up as a Floridian farm girl to the glossy. “It made me very goal-oriented and focused. I’m not opposed to a hard day’s work for a good outcome.”
The blond beauty also got candid about suffering from occasional insecurities, like everyone else. “It’s not like I look in the mirror and think, ‘I’m killing it. My eyes are killing it.’ No, a lot of times I’m puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don’t,” she said.
Kate also revealed that she’s been under unfair pressure from agents, but remains totally unfazed. “Agents have put me under pressure to lose weight in the past. I would go on set and clients loved me. And then I would go into an agency and feel like crap about myself. They would say: ‘Just lose five more [pounds]!’ But I couldn’t give a crap,” she said. “I still don’t.”

Kate Upton has always wanted a curvaceous figure.
The ‘Other Woman’ star, 22, admits she ”begged” for a shapely body when she first started modeling and was overjoyed when people started praising her sexy shape.
Speaking to the U.K.’s ELLE magazine, she said: ”When I first started modeling, I was a normal catalogue model. Then, I became a woman and I was really excited about becoming a woman.
”Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!’
”And then people say, ‘Oh, wow, you’re healthy.’ And you’re like, ‘Wait, what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!’ ”
However, the Sports Illustrated model previously admitted she found it difficult when she first started going for auditions for films because agents weren’t sure if her hourglass figure was right for the big screen.
She said: ”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.
”I thought, how I’m going to come out of this will be an example for girls.”

Men of the world, your dreams just may come true: Kate Upton has opened up about the possibility of posing for Playboy.
While speaking with British GQ at an event for Gillette, the brand’s sexiest ambassador opened up about what she wants in a man (physically speaking, that is) and shared her thoughts on David Beckham‘s style in addition to dishing on the popular men’s magazine which many would love to see the buxom beauty front.
So, would she ever pose for Playboy?!
“I never like to say never because there are circumstances that I could do pretty much anything if it inspires me and if I think that it’s cool at the time,” she shared. “But right now, at this point in my career, I’m not doing Playboy.”
Although it’s probably not the answer you fellas were wishing for, at least there’s still a little hope for the future, right?
The 22-year-old model also shared her thoughts on what makes a well-groomed man, admitting “confidence” is key when it comes to attraction.
“I think, really, it’s all about confidence – it’s however a guy feels the most confident,” she said. “And anytime someone walks into a room who is just exuding confidence, I think whatever they’re doing is amazing.”
As for whether some men take grooming a tad too far?
“I think there is a fine line between grooming when you’re confident and you appreciate yourself, and grooming because you’re insecure,” the blond bombshell explained. “I think some guys try to please what other people think they should look like, instead of knowing how they feel the best in themselves.”
Upton was also asked who she believes is the best dressed British man, and, when she couldn’t come up with a response, the reporter suggested David Beckham, to which the leggy stunner replied: “But he’s never dressed. He’s always naked – he does campaigns in his underwear! In the States they’re always like: ‘Topless pictures of David Beckham’!”
And that’s a problem…why?
Last but certainly not least, the Vogue cover girl was asked for her personal food preference if a man is making her a home cooked meal.
“I always feel great after green juices and I always have eggs in the morning,” Justin Verlander‘s GF dished. “I think a little bit of everything is good in moderation. But if a guy was going to cook for me I would eat whatever he put in front of me!”

Kate Upton was uncharacteristically covered up yesterday for an event celebrating her latest gig as the new face of Express denim. Looking effortless in jeans and a casual blouse, the model sat down with us to talk about everything from the partnership to her summer travel plans. Here, ELLE’s September 2013 cover girl shares her pre-photo shoot routine, reveals her distaste for pickup lines, and of course, talks about her love of jeans.
So, tell us about this new partnership!
Well I’m really excited about working with Express because I’m familiar with the brand. You know, I’ve been wearing it since I was young, and I think it’s amazing to work with a company that has such great clothing for a valuable price. It’s fashion for everyone.
How do you like to wear and style your jeans this time of year? It’s a little tough to wear them when it’s so hot out.
I like to put a tank with them or a nice loose button down and make it really casual. Maybe cute flats or if I’m going out, wedges.
Are you headed anywhere this summer?
I had a very family filled summer. My one sister got married. The other one just had a baby. So I’ve just been traveling to go see them.
What are your favorite ways to stay active and healthy this time of the year?
I love being outside. When I go home to Florida, I have a horse down there and I go and ride. I always just try and find new things. Go swimming, bike riding—anything. In the summer, it’s easy to stay active.
Let’s say you have a photo shoot tomorrow. What are your last minute tips for getting ready, and what do you do to prep?
Drink lots of water. Moisturizer. I might put on a mask, and have a good night’s sleep. Shave? [laughs] I think it’s about confidence. I think walking into a shoot, it’s about feeling good about yourself. Anytime anyone has any big thing that they’re nervous for, it’s about them feeling good. However they feel best, it’s what they should do to prepare. I don’t think it’s about starving yourself or going to do a four-hour workout.
What is the worst pick-up line you’ve ever had to hear? I’m sure you’ve heard many.
I actually haven’t heard a lot of pick-up lines, and I don’t think that they work. I’m not really about them. I don’t find them funny.
That’s fair—I don’t think anyone really does. One last question: What song is your summer anthem this year?

She is undoubtedly one of the most lusted after women in the world, with a string of bikini-clad Sports Illustrated covers under her belt.
However Kate Upton proved that even the most glamorous stars have low-key days after she was spotted at Detroit airport.
The 22-year-old blended in with her fellow travelers as she made her way to her flight solo in a simple white short-sleeved T-Shirt.
Despite her relaxed attire, Kate looked as stunning as ever in minimal make-up and delicate silver drop earrings.
She teamed her loose top with baggy black trousers and trainers, after wowing in skinny jeans and a zebra top at the Express campaign launch in NYC earlier in the day.

Swim suit model Kate Upton had been proclaimed the new brand ambassador for clothing line Express back in March, but it was on Tuesday that the busty model opened up about her very lucrative contract with the clothing line.
‘Exciting start to a big day,’ she tweeted as she entered the Express Time Square flagship store for the public launch of the line.
The 21-year-old rocked a pair of skin-tight denim trousers in a soft indigo blue, which will be part of the new fall line.
The busty model kept her cleavage under wraps during the media event, wearing a modest zebra-print button down long-sleeved shirt that she wore over the jeans.
She added inches to her petite frame with 60′s-style white platform sandals with orange soles, which elongated her legs perfectly.
Kate’s hair was worn long and full while her makeup was subdued and light for launch party, to which the media and select customers were invited.
The young style icon looked demur as she posed sweetly with executives from the clothing line and other guests, including the editor in chief of Teen Vogue.
‘I grew up wearing Express jeans,’ the model said in a statement released by the retailer. ‘When I’m not dressing for the red carpet, I love to dress up in a pair of great fitting jeans and boots. It’s my go-to look.’
In addition to Express, the Sports Illustrated stunner is also the face of Sam Edelman’s digital and print advertising campaign.
