Kate Upton shows off her figure for the July issue of GQ: gross or cute?


I just looked through GQ’s completely NSFW slideshow for their July cover girl, Kate Upton, and while I admire this girl‘s figure, I found the photos to be kind of gross. Guess who photographed her? Terry Richardson. Yes. So the shoot is what you would imagine, only with more water everywhere and at this point I can pretty much draw Kate’s breasts from memory. I’m guessing this Uncle Terry shoot was the same as the incident where Terry videotaped Kate dancing the “Cat Daddy” with extra jiggle. Anyway, you can read GQ’s profile of Kate here, and here are some highlights:

On her male fans: “I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me.… It’s like any job. You find your strengths and play them up.”

Kate Upton on the most exciting thing she’s done since becoming famous: “For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing…You wouldn’t think that would happen with a one-piece!”

Kate on the looming Jets quarterback controversy (Mark Sanchez vs. Tim Tebow):
“I’m going to be less emotionally involved this year.”

In the GQ piece, Kate also talks about her cameo (or something) as a nun in The Three Stooges, and why she’s cool with the Catholic Church being pissed at her. You know… whenever I write about her, I always try to emphasize how young she is – she’s only 20 years old, and she’s a self-made model (meaning she worked social media and whatever else she could to get attention when the fashion industry elites ignored her), and she’s just a silly, good-natured girl. It’s not that serious. Pretty blonde girl with big boobs acts silly and shows her nips to GQ. The end.

    So, do we know if her boobs are real or not?

    • Kaiser says:

      Judging by how jiggly they are, I’m saying they’re real. Plus, she has a nice natural sag – they don’t look bolted on.

    • Hautie says:

      They appear to be what the good lord gave her. And if she has any sense at all… she would invest in good bra’s.

      Because they only stay pretty with the help of great support.

      • Newgirl says:

        HaHa, totally. My girls are big too, but I’ve kept them looking good over the years with good bras. I get a new bra every 6-9 months. But now, it’s like they said on Seinfeld “They’re real, and they’re spectacular.”

    • Rory says:

      Sorry, peeps, they’re completely fake. too far apart, far too round, too shiney, which is what ultimately gives them away, the shine (from the skin having to be stretched). Silicone jiggles too.

      • Krock says:

        Not necessarily true that they are far apart so they are fake. Mine are far apart and as real as it gets. I think hers are real. If they are fake, then whoever did them did a great job making them look natural.

  2. Elle says:

    I am a little repulsed by her boobs. They are just too big for her body.

  3. Jenna says:

    I still don’t know why she’s “famous” but, hello photoshop.

  4. Cleveland Girl says:

    I love this kid. She has large breasts, yes. But they are HERS. No implants. What is she supposed to do?? I just hope Terry Richardson doesn’t corrupt her.

    • Kim says:

      Pllleeaaasse! Her boobs are as “real” as her “natural” (from a bottle) blond hair. They are so obviously fake.

      • Cleveland Girl says:

        I don’t know. I seriously think that they are real. A lot of the younger gals have HUGE boobs because of the hormones that were in Cows milk in the 90s. My daughter is one of them!

  5. Abby says:

    I think she’s cute. I work in that horse industry she grew up in so I kind of feel like “aw, remember when she just rode Paints” kind of thing. I wish her well. And holy hell boobies.

  6. Heather says:

    She’s gorgeous.

  7. bea says:

    Great body – very pretty face.

    She does have some proportion issues and she really should not wear her hair slicked back into a tight ponytail – she needs her long hair to balance out her body and and tiny face.

    She always looks sunny & sweet kind of sexy in photos, not like some scowling vixen – I like it, it’s refreshing.

    I didn’t know that’s how she got famous – I love that. She didn’t fit their standards but she realized that men were responding to her and turned it into $.

    • Rhea says:

      Yes, I like her too. She seems sweet. Like Jessica Simpson or Anna Nicole Smith. :)

    • Tiffany says:

      “She always looks sunny & sweet kind of sexy in photos, not like some scowling vixen”

      I agree, that is why I like her too! I love that she isn’t a toothpick and that she seems to be a happy girl. I am so over the glare/scowl look that so many models use.

  8. Newgirl says:

    Chill out Elle.
    I think her boobs are real. They jiggled too much in that cat daddy video to be fake. I kind of feel for her, I’m 5’3″ and my boobs are way too big for my frame (34D). When you’re young, it can be awkward when you get a lot of male attention b/c of them and all the women think you’re dumb or a tramp.
    It doesn’t matter as you get older, I’m almost 40 now and my boobs still look spectacular, so I’m more comfortable showing my curves since I’m married and have kids.

  9. sarah says:

    I think she’s a nice refreshing change from so many other “models”. She has an amazing body. I would kill to have a natural figure like that! Plus a cute face and a goofy personality. I like her. I think it’s too bad though that so many people throw shade at her. Jealousy is a bitch. lol.

  10. carolinaq says:

    cue a thread where everyone offers their bra cup size unnecessarily…..lol

  11. kristiner says:

    She does not have a cute face at all and her body is strange. She’s kind of curvy but weirdly shaped in her torso. Like she got lipo and forgot to tone up on her own.

  12. Beatrix says:

    Gross. And cheap

    • Eleonor says:

      Co-sign, she has a great body, but even with all that photoshop she still has that cheapmallgirl face.
      Plus she comes out as “the same stupid blonde with big boobs”.

  13. Riana says:

    I couldn’t click on the link because well…NSFW, burghs cover photo is kinda cute at least.

    It’s an odd position to judge her.

    On the one hand her value currently in the media is entirely based on how much she can expose and pose with her breasts. On the other she seems happy with it…even though I feel the whole industry is being kinda being like a creepy Uncle Terry.

    Like I can’t help but feel she’s a sweet 19yr old who’s gonna get screwed in a year or 2.

  14. kit says:

    She’s very pretty, but seems to mainly do these types of shoots and I think she won’t last long if she doesn’t mix it up.
    Terry Richardson should be banned. He’s gross!

  15. Tara says:

    Anna Nicole Smith v2.0

  16. Kim says:

    Gross. Just another blah blond attention whore.

  17. Kim says:

    Playing up the stupid blond “oh my bathingsuit top fell off” soooooo lame Im embarrassed for her. You can be pretty and classy and this girl is neither.

  18. UniqJaz says:

    No one else thinks the cover photo is wayy too sexual. If a man was on this GQ magazine all he would be doing is standing with no shirt on or have chicks clawing at him. She has to stick something in her mouth in a sexual manner…like realyyy?!! That is what it is representing (oral sex) and the magazine people know this. Sends really a wrong message for american women.

  19. Bread and Circuses says:

    She does seem really nice.

    Too nice to spend so much time in the presence of creepsters like Terry.

  20. Jover says:

    Sign on kim eleonor beatrix makes me wistful for the supermodels of the 80s/90s that combined allure, sex appeal, glamour and sophistication, compared to the likes of Yasmeen Ghauri or Meghan Douglas, etc. this girl looks like a rube that just fell off the turnip truck into her 15 of “fame.”

  21. Stubbylove says:

    I think she’s gorgeous and love her All-American looks and amazing, real body. That being said, the cover of GQ is a bit much with the licking of the popsicle. It’s not Maxim or Playboy but it will sell mags – guess that’s the point. Terry Richardson is a major creepy perv.

  22. Katie says:

    There is just something cheap about her. I can’t put my finger on it though.

  23. Jayna says:

    I like her.

  24. Amanda_M87 says:

    Kind of gross. She looks way too photoshopped. I like that the popsicle matches the GQ logo though.

  25. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Ugh she has an amazing body they don’t need to have he sucking on some phallic object with her boobs clearly visible. This isn’t Playboy. But whatever, male magazine, why not make it easy to sell some and have her looking a step away from giving a blow job.

  26. Kiki says:

    She’s become everything Brooklyn Decker ever dreamed of being. Except that BD isn’t so pretty, has a weird face, and wasn’t getting any modeling jobs anymore, so she “decided” to try acting. Guess that didn’t work out either.

  27. blah says:

    LOL at the jellies hating on her face and figure. Cute as hell and built like a shit brick house. And who gives a rat’s ass if her fun bags are real or not? They’re epic and make me feel “climb the rope in gym class” funny.

  28. Kosmos says:

    She appears to be a cute girl with a nice figure, but the shot on the cover is in bad taste, almost soft porn, c’mon…. it makes her appear a little slutty like she would do anything to be on the cover, even suck on a popsicle. If her breasts are totally real, I would be very surprised, given her body size.

  29. Lexi says:

    It’s cute, she has a very girl next door vibe

  30. Lilly says:

    omg JEALOUSY! LOL.

    shes cute and sweet and seems pretty humbled. i like her. she has a great natural body that most people would kill for and i like how you can see her personality and positive energy through her pictures. and, uh, yeah shes HOT!

    im in my 20s and its nice to feel confident enough with myself and my body to admit this about a bombshell like kate, unlike most insecure girls. jeez
