Kate Upton: 'You're ugly if you don't have a curvy body'

Kate Upton scores the cover of ELLE but isn't wearing her usual clothing (or, lack there of?) for the shoot.

The September issue of ELLE UK features a covered-up Kate Upton looking classy as ever in a Prada jacket. This time, it's not her infamous curves that landed her the shoot, but the fact that she is "the hottest model on the planet right now," according to ELLE. In the photos, her body is hidden beneath what appears to be a furry sweatshirt. While most people couldn't pull off this look, Kate obviously looks amazing!

In the interview, the supermodel reveals what it's like being a woman with curves in the real world and in the modeling industry. "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," she says.

But the Sunshine State's beauty standards aren't the same as those in the modeling industry. She's admitted that in the past agents have urged her to lose weight, but she never did because the people on set seemed to love her body. Kate's embraced her curves and we love her for that.

That said, the buxom blonde hasn't always been blessed with such a bodacious bod. When she first started modeling, Kate described herself as a "normal catalogue model," according to Daily Mail. But eventually she grew out of that (and into her bra), and the rest is history!
