Model Kate Upton has finally made the full transition from bikini clad cat-daddy dancer to Vogue Italia cover girl. The 19-year old model’s boobies are arguably still the main focus of the image, but hey! A cover of Vogue is a cover of Vogue. 

Kate Upton Lands the November Cover of Italian <i>Vogue</i>

Our little skanky baby is growing up! Graduating from tiny triangle bikinis to Fendi fur coats, Kate Upton has landed her first cover of Vogue. The 19-year old who was made famous due to her barely there swimsuit on the cover of Sports Illustrated, is now gracing the pages of some seriously high fashion editorials.

Kate’s high fashion career so far has been like so, after her cover of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book she then went on to the French fashion magazine Jalousse. Then Steven Meisel shot her in an editorial for American Vogue and lent consequently lent his lens for this featured cover of Vogue Italia.

We’re not sure of fashion’s obsession with Kate, but we’ll accept this strange way of fashion embracing different body types. Even if they are in the form of a bikini clad glorified car model. Good for you, Kate. Work with what your mamma gave you.

Lady Gaga could get $5 million to star as the love interest in the sequel to Zoolander, but Kate Upton and Heidi Klum are second choice. Who do you think Derek will choose ?
