Im a straight woman and I could look at her all day.
Though I do wonder why they didnt try to get a better angle for her tummy. Too focused on loose breasts and keep them put for the shot than the angle of the rest of her be my guess. Too bad...the other cover was much more flattering as a whole.
You have to admire the prep and photographer that goes into those shoots and how talented the models are and how hard they work. SI is my goal when doing beach photography (stop f*cking laughing!!!! lol)
When I saw the SI images, it re-enforced my belief that she's really not anything special. Don't get me wrong, I wish her continued success and I completely understand why the girl-next-door glamour bombshell thing works for her. It's just not an aesthetic that I have an appreciation for, and thus, don't really have much appreciation for her work.
Then I saw her campaign for Sam Edelman's S/S 2013 collection. "Oh. My bad."

I don't mean to threadjack, but since this thread's all about Kate...
There's a photographer here on MM that has a pic of her in his portfolio. It is such a natural shot and very casual, I almost didn't recognize it to be her at first. She is wearing (if memory serves) a maroon shirt of some kind and her freckles are very prominent.
