Should Kate Upton’s Risqué SI Cover Be Displayed On Magazine Stands? Critics Think Not

When you’ve graced the cover of Sports Illustrated’s ‘Swimsuit’ issue on three separate occasions, there’s a pretty good chance that you know a thing or two about keeping yourself in tip-top shape. That’s definitely the case for supermodel Kate Upton, and she recently shared some insight on her overall approach. As Fox News shares, it sounds like that approach is evolving, and she’s shared some words of wisdom that we can all take to heart.

Upton’s cover for this year’s issue has gained a lot of attention, and part of that is due to an interesting tidbit that social media users were quick to point out.

“Happy that Kate Upton is the SI Swimsuit cover model but it's funny that of 3 cover photos, not one is an actual swimsuit you could wear,” shared one user. Others have been quick to slam the magazine and model for wearing such a racy swimsuit, questioning if it should even be displayed on magazine stands.

While that may be the case, there’s no denying that Upton looks stunning in all three photos, and she partially credits that to her new approach this year.

“This year, I had a completely different mindset about my body and instead of always trying to fit in a certain sample size, I wanted to be strong and healthy,” she said.

Changing her mindset appears to have worked wonders, but it also opened her eyes to something else.

“Changing my workout and focusing on weight training helped me do that. It helped me think about my body as a machine and less of something people can judge me on. People feel ashamed when they look bad one day, but it’s OK not to love yourself every second of every day. Appreciate what your body can do,” she continued.

That’s an interesting revelation from the supermodel. While observers will be quick to judge and assume everything is perfect in her world, it certainly sounds like she has plenty of moments of doubt - just like the rest of us. As we all chase and strive for perfection in our own personal lives, perhaps we can keep her words of wisdom tucked away for when those moments of self-doubt creep in.
