Aside from a few minor criticisms I have with the cover, I'm ecstatic to see Kate Upton covering British Vogue.

She's a breath of fresh air and the fashion heavyweights seem to agree. Kate being called bland should be against forum rules. There are numerous high-fashion models, working today, who have nothing going for them, at all. Julia Nobis often gets a beating for her blandness, and to me, she is. Although she does fit into certain aesthetics.

It's almost like people are afraid Kate is about to steal the limelight from their model favourites and the result is snobbish, rude and immature mocking towards her. My head is shaking when I'm reading most of the comments in this thread.

I took a double look when i saw the thread title, that happens seldom these days. I have nothing against Upton, liked her VI cover, and eds for US Vogue, and she looks beautiful here, it just feels so empty, they could have done better with her.

I actually like this cover of her atleast she doesn't look like a porn star, but I don't like the title line. "keeps it real" all models are real women just because they stay fit and toned doesn't mean they aren't real.

Who is this woman? Why is she everywhere suddenly?
She looks like your typical footballers wife, if they put Abbey Clancy over there the result would have been exactly same.

A refreshing choice for the cover, makes me interested in UK Vogue again. I wish her hair was styled a little smoother, but I guess that's part of keeping it real. I look forward to the feature and the accompanying slightly condescending article.

I really dislike that the Doutzen cover rumor turned out to be a editorial.

I guess this means no Doutzen cover in the upcoming months.

With Kate on January and Cara on March there's not a chance February will be Doutzen! Maybe she was originally down for a cover and they switched it to Kate.

Shame. I've nothing against her, I just don't particularly enjoy looking at her. That's the simplest way to put it. I'm not calling her unattractive, I'm not calling her trashy... I just find nothing remotely eye catching about her that makes me want to look at her.

That's the case for me as well. Her eyebrows and hair irk me to no end on the cover, but the color palette is refreshing for the new year.

^^I really wanted to see Doutzen on the cover but this is quite gorgeous as well. But I'm 100% sure Doutzen will get the cover in 2013.
