Kate Upton Deemed 'Hottest Supermodel on Earth'

Kate Upton has landed yet another coveted cover. After the curvalicious supermodel graced not one, but two Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, the prestigious Vogue magazine is calling the blonde bombshell the "American Dream Girl."
Hailed as the "hottest supermodel on Earth," the 20-year-old explains some of her choices to get to this high point in her career. One choice being when she did the nearly NSFW Cat Daddy dance for photographer Terry Richardson in a barely-there red bikini. "I didn't buy the magazines that had models on the covers, because I didn't know them. So I think this kind of gives me, as a model, a personality that people can connect with," she tells the fashion publication.
Adding of her critics, "The things that they're rejecting are things that I can't change. I can't change my bra size. They're natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can't change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It's what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great."
Though this will be Upton's first U.S. Vogue cover, the supermodel has graced both the Italia and British Vogue magazines. So what's next for Vogue's June cover girl? "I feel like I trust my career path," Upton admits. "I would love to have my own lingerie line."
Vogue's Lizzie Widdicombe writes of Upton, "What makes the Kate Upton era so unlikely is that the things we love about her-- those curves! that personality!-- defy what the word model has come to mean, at least on the runway: a seemingly endless procession of lanky, expressionless wraiths."
Do you agree? Is Upton the "hottest supermodel on Earth?"
