Everything in fashion is a matter of opinion, but Kate Upton's fourth Vogue cover, for the Brazilian edition's July 2013 issue, is surely her best yet.
The cover above appeared in the tFS Forums as a snapshot preview yesterday afternoon; shortly after, Vogue Brazil posted an authorized version to their website. Upton was photographed by Henrique Gendre and styled in Miu Miu by Luis Fiod.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl has previously appeared on the cover of Vogue's American, British and Italian editions. Though her trajectory from men's magazine model to fashion darling has attracted a number of detractors (the "bombshell" look can be unpopular among many model junkies, who tend to prefer the more unusual beauty of runway models), her consistently strong editorial work is making it increasingly difficult to dismiss her.
