Upton, 22, thinks the nudity is next to godliness and considers nude photos an art.
Plus so many supermodels, from Karlie Kloss to Kate Moss and Adriana Lima have posed for artful nude photographs.
“For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it’s received in a very positive way,” she told Details magazine.
But noooo… she won’t pose nude, because of all the immature, snarky bloggers that might not see it the same way.
“With social media and the Internet and not-so-great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received,” she said.
“That’s why I’ve stayed away from them,” she added.
“I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that.”
Damn! Talk about the irony.
Kate has the Internet to thank for her rise to supermodeldom. She went viral in 2011 YouTube video doing the Dougie at an LA Clippers basketball game.
For the uninitiated, the Dougie is a dance craze spawned by Cali Swag District’s hit “Teach Me How to Dougie.”
Kate landed a spot in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and was named the magazine’s “Rookie of the Year.” She captured the coveted cover in 2012 and 2013.
These days, Kate tells the magazine she’s so busy, she can’t begin to do all of the fashion offers she’s getting. Plus she’s also trying to nurture a film career.
So no nude photos. But check out the next best thing. One of Kate’s sizzling lingerie photo shoots. And be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter. We need and value your support. Give us a boost!
