Former Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton has well and truly cemented her status as a fashion model now that she is on the front cover of British Vogue’s January 2013 issue. At least in our opinion, anyway!

Although this isn’t Kate’s first cover for the fashion Bible (she posed for Vogue Italia a few months ago) we think she might just be taken even more seriously in the fashion world with an Alexandra Shulman approved cover under her belt. We don’t even think she will have to cough up $20,000 for her next Met Gala ticket, either.

Fresh start is the theme of the magazine this month, and it couldn’t be more apparent on the cover. It’s clean, simple and fresh, and choosing Kate for the cover also shoehorns the fact that her career has gone in a totally new direction. We cannot wait for this to slide through our letter box!
