Kate Upton September 2013 Elle Magazine

Don't Even Think About Calling Kate Upton a "Dumb Blonde"

This wouldn't be the first time Kate Upton blew us away on a magazine cover (Sports Illustrated, anyone?), but it's her comments on that said magazine that are really making headlines! "After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month," Kate revealed. "Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman . . ."

Surprising quotes aren't all that are drawing attention about Kate's interview. Her looks in Elle are a stark contrast from the undersized ombre bikini we're familiar with. Decked in everything from a red hot neoprene Lanvin tube dress to Louis Vuitton's mohair blouse, Kate does sexy and sophisticated with equal ease. Read on to see that aforementioned look find out why this blonde's no dummy!

Sprawled out for Elle in Louis Vuitton, Kate seems of another era. The bookish look is a contrast from the reality of how she's treated in the industry: "People deal with models like they are children . . . I'm always like, I'm about to pull something on you, and you're so focused on thinking I'm dumb you're not even going to know."
