Kate Upton who is known for having a curvy image in the modeling industry is now saying that she wants to set a realistic example for young women across the world.
Kate has said that she is refusing to diet or starve herself for any jobs, basically she will not compromise her integrity or change her look for the modelling industry.
In a recent interview with Vogue magazine, Kate said, “When I lived in Florida, the swimsuit was the key wardrobe piece. I lived 10 minutes from the beach, but I never sat there and said, ‘I want to be every man’s fantasy.’ It wasn’t a big deal to be in a bathing suit. Now, whenever girls come up to me saying they’re happy to see I am confident about my body, it makes me feel good that I am contributing in a way among people my age, people who could be my friends. I am excited to be in a place where I can be a good example… I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable. Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence. I’m sure every girl can relate. You go shopping and you’re not the same size in every brand – some look good on you and others don’t.”
Kate Upton rose to fame when the voluptuous beautiful blonde landed the Summer of 2012 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Since then, Kate has posed on photo shoots with Cosmopolitan, GQ, Esquire and America’s Vogue.
I love Kate’s positive message, I am sure she will inspire today’s young women to be who they are and not who people want them to be.
