Curvy is in!
After landing the November cover of Vogue Italia — which isn’t an easy feat! — Kate Upton is proving to the industry that you don’t have to be a size “0” to represent the modeling world.
And curvaceous former supermodel, Tyra Banks, is more than supportive.
“Kate Upton is curvy and nervy,” the TV hostess tweeted today about Kate's magazine spread. “Love her. Booty is back!”
The 20-year-old blonde beauty, who’s currently romancing Detroit Tigers’ pitcher Justin Verlander, is no stranger to facing harsh criticism.

“It was hard when I was first in the industry and people were like: ‘No, you are fat,’” Kate’s shared. “But my body is something that you have to work out and eat healthily for.”
“Young models – these agents are horrible to them, they treat them so badly,” she’s said, adding, “Some models don’t say anything [about being sleazed] on but I’m very verbal. I’ve always said something.”
Just like Kate, Tyra has also been picked apart for her weight.
"I get so much mail from young girls who say, 'I look up to you, you're not as skinny as everyone else, I think you're beautiful,'” the 38-year-old has said. "So when they say that my body is 'ugly' and 'disgusting,' what does that make those girls feel like?"
"I've made millions of dollars with the body I have, so where's the pain in that?” she’s remarked.
If you got it, flaunt it…. and these ladies certainly can!
