The Upton Effect

February 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The sexy market just got a little more competitive thanks to the meteoric rise of Kate Upton. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition was a major coup, but the momentum keeps building with cover after cover. From a Marilyn Monroe turn on the latest Muse Magazine, to upstaging Don Draper himself on Esquire,┬áit seems Kate is gunning for that numero uno slot on Top Sexiest. Only time will tell if the blonde bombshell will make an impact with the high fashion crowd and snag the coveted honors but we can’t remember the last time a newbie made such a splash!

Kate Moss by Craig McDean for Another Magazine. (for full story on the covers and Another Magazine’s Decade in Style, click here).

Joining in the multi cover party that V Magazine started with 4 Fall covers and the special edition V Magazine 19 cover bonanza by Paul Rowland, is Another Magazine‘s beauteous quartet of Natalie Portman, Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moss and Katie Holmes. Love Magazine also enters the fray with 2 covers, one of Coco Sumner (Sting’s daughter) and the other of young musician Alex Hartley. It looks like it’s never been a better time for readers with such a plethora of choices.
