Supermodel Kate Upton is clad in PRADA for the cover of Elle UK's September 2014 edition photographed by Matt Jones (Trish South). Fashion styling is courtesy of Anne-Marie Curtis, hair by hair stylist Kevin Ryan for Art + Commerce, make by makeup artist Quinn Murphy for Cloutier Remix.
‘When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model,’ Kate explains in the accompanying interview, speaking about her stratospheric rise to fame – with that body. ‘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!”’ – from ELLE UK
