Kate on Vogue UK–Model turned actress Kate Upton stars on the June cover of Vogue UK, looking like a retro bombshell in a Dolce & Gabbana swimsuit. Mario Testino shot the blonde babe in the Caribbean for the new issue where she talks to It Girl Alexa Chung about being called a modern day Marilyn Monroe (who she channeled for last year’s Vanity Fair September cover). “I always thought Marilyn was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her,” she tells Chung. “But I feel like nowadays it’s easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don’t think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don’t have that.”
