I have a very strong feeling it'll be Kate. I'm so sick of people saying models are "undeserving" of covers. Who are we to decide who is deserving or not? That's the editor's decision. Kate Upton would sell, and at the end of the day, it's all about money. She certainly has a story, too. She went from Sports Illustrated to Vogue almost overnight. Who else has done that? Anna clearly has taken a liking to Kate, and I wouldn't blame her for putting her on the cover. It's a great way to try something new, and yet stay safe at the same time. I'm anticipating the cover. I hope the rumor is true and it is by Meisel. I think an all American, Ralph Lauren and/or Tommy Hilfiger theme would be lovely. Kate really works in those types of settings.

Sorry, I wasn't thrilled with the Meryl Streep cover a year ago and I know many others are here were. She's an incredible actress no doubt, but seeing her on the cover of US Vogue made zero sense to me.

^ It would be February 2013 if anything because the December/January issue is out at the moment.

^But Numero doesn't have a January issue, but a December/January issue and it's out already.

My exact sentiments as well. Thank you for this.

Does Kate Upton sell amongst women? Are women interested in her? I know men certainly are but I'm lost when it comes to female readers.

I don't see why women wouldn't like her as well. I mean, men like Marilyn Monroe, but women do too.


Not that Kate is equivalent to Marilyn in the grand scheme of things, I'm just using it as an example of how women don't dislike/feel threatened by blonde bombshells.

I agree, I can't stand it when people say things like this. Getting the cover is not like receiving a Nobel Prize, it's just the cover of a damn magazine.

I think there were rumours about Milla Jovovich shooting something.

American women are obsessed with beautiful women with ”curves”. It's relatable for them. As a woman, I'm interested in her.

I think it should mean something for a model or actress to make the cover of a major magazine, just like it's a huge deal for a model to land a make-up contract (or some other major deal). I think diminishing the importance of landing covers takes some of the fun and spirit out of fashion, and talk of who deserves one is entirely relevant. I want to applaud models and celebrities for landing a cover.

Anyway, I think Kate Upton is a good choice for pretty much any magazine cover at the moment, especially Vogue. Although I don't think the Sports Illustrated to Vogue crossover is a big deal. When I hear those titles together I immediately think of models like Paulina Porizkova, Christie Brinkley, and Cindy Crawford.
