Former editor-in-chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld has released the cover of her new magazine CR Fashion-Book and surprisingly it’s starring none other than the famous GQ
skank model Kate Upton…. with her clothes on.
We are always surprised when we see supermodel Kate Upton not looking like a street-walker, but this time around she has unexpectedly landed the cover the debut issue of Carine Roitfeld’s highly anticipated CR Fashion-Book.
The 19-year old model has caused many a fashion controversy including her Terry Richardson ”cat-daddy” video, which was famously removed from YouTube, and Victoria’s Secret’s slam calling her “too obvious”.
Carine stated that she used Miss Kate because “No one will imagine me having a cover like this, but I want to be very positive about fashion.”
Carine believed that Kate fit with the theme of rebirth and that her “sensual” body made it feel natural for her to hold baby animals. Carine also decided to surprise people when she chose a more commercial and typically pigeon-holed bikini model instead of someone more high fashion.
Overall, we approve of this cover featuring the 19-year old looking more refined (even with her boobies still slightly out) and we continue to look forward to see what Upton does with her modeling career in the future. Goes to show that when though Victoria’s Secret won’t have you, you can still land high-fashion editorials and covers approved by the likes of Carine Roitfeld and Anna Wintour. Therefore, Kate must be doing something right.
