She has also appears on the covers of Italian Vogue, British Vogue, Cosmopolitan, French ELLE, GQ, Esquire and several other publications.

Suffice to say, she’s a hot commodity right now — so it’s appropriate that Upton would be named Model of the Year for the 10th annual Style Awards, being held Wednesday, Sept. 4 in New York City to kick off the 2013 Fashion Week.
