Kate Upton covers the new issue of V Magazine which features a unique transparent peel-back cover that removes her clothes to unveil the model in nothing but a bikini. Kate shows off her figure for the images captured by photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Speaking to the publication, Kate commented on the time when Victoria’s Secret casting director Sophia Neophitou said “we would never use” her. She said:
"I had just gotten my cover of Sports Illustrated that day. I wasn't used to that kind of media swirl. I had never met her, so it really came out of nowhere. It was my introduction to being in the spotlight and having people you've never met have an opinion of you."
