Do You Prefer Kate Upton Sexy or Seductive?

Posted on

Walter Iooss Jr./Sports Illustrated

When she landed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover earlier this year, Kate Upton quickly became a household name — and a lightning rod for controversy over her sexuality and sadly, size.

Then last week, we saw a different side of the rising star thanks to Vogue Italia, which glammed her up Marilyn Monroe-style and photographed her for its November cover, with the word “SEDUCTIVE” plastered across her chest (subtle, eh?).

In an accompanying behind-the-scenes video (below), though, the young model is quite seductive, posing and, uh, writhing in a variety of chic looks while being photographed atop a New York City high-rise.

Much has been written lately (including in American Vogue) about her ability to do high fashion — can a buxom blonde girl hit the runway for, say, Valentino? — but this Vogue Italia spread shows she definitely has versatility as a model. So which do you prefer? Tell us: Do you like Upton sexy on Sports Illustrated, or seductive for Vogue Italia?
