Today I bring you photos of model Kate Upton, for today's not-so-wordless Wednesday post. Because of her size (aka she is not a size zero, the standard in the modeling industry), Kate causes drama every time she lands a magazine cover. These year she was chosen as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition cover model (for the second year in a row) and has also been on the cover of Vogue UK and Vogue Italia within the past six months, to name a few.
I personally find Kate to be very pretty and have a lovely, curvy, voluptuous body. Unfortunately there are many people that do not share my same feelings. When Kate was chosen as this years SI cover model and the image was released to the media, the comments I was reading online (mostly regarding her size) absolutely saddened and disgusted me. No Kate isn't "perfect" (well, society's idea of perfect) but I personally would much rather see her on the cover of a magazine, than a model that looks like she hasn't eaten in ten years and is so thin, that she might break in half if you hug her too hard. It breaks my heart every time I read an article online or read comments by people, saying how Kate is fat, a cow, or too huge to be on the cover of a magazine. If Kate is a cow, then sign me up! I want to be as "fat" as Kate!
