While U.S. editrix Anna Wintour hasn't put Kate Upton on her precious Vogue cover yet, the model has landed her second Vogue international cover. The January 2013 UK edition will feature Upton in a very "girl next door" look, and editor Alexandra Shulman inexplicably felt the need to explain why she allowed such a curvy lady to represent them:

"It's very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them. When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model—although, let's face it, she's hardly a heffalump!"

A heffalump, by the way, is a type of fictional elephant A. A. Milne created for the Winnie the Pooh series. So if you think you fall under the heffalump/elephant category as a female, don't expect Shulman to allow you anywhere near her cover. In fact, don't even buy her magazine, it's probably just, you know, not for you. [via Blackbook]
