Well, now that the football season is over we can return to that other great American pastime: Ogling hot babes. This article tells us Kate Upton is the new Marilyn Monroe or something. Time will tell.
“She has those wonderful characteristics and sexy kind of moves like Marilyn Monroe had,” says shoe designer Sam Edelman, who cast Upton in his latest campaign.
“She does amazing things with her lips. Amazing things with her body. She’s able to change so quickly from the girl next door to a movie star.”
Upton was so distractingly sizzling in a Mercedes Super Bowl ad teaser, it led to rumors that execs whittled her airtime on game day.
“What’s changed in my life this past year?” Upton mused during a break from her Super Bowl duties over the weekend.
“An easier question would be, ‘What’s the same?’ My life has changed completely, but for the better.”
Last year, the 5-foot-10 blonde graced the covers of British Vogue, Sports Illustrated’s 2012 Swimsuit Issue, GQ, CR (former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s edgy new fashion magazine) and Italian Vogue.
“I feel like the fashion world is still just discovering her,” says Stephen Gan, editor-in-chief of V magazine, which features Upton in a cleavage-baring hotel-erotica story in its January 2013 issue.
“I said to [Upton], ‘I met you a year ago, and I feel like a bomb exploded since,’ ” recalls Gan. “And she said, ‘It feels more like three.’ ”
