Kate Upton Reveals Secret to Her Appeal (Photos & Video)

| by

The voluptuous Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and universal “it” girl gave a telling interview to GQ this month during which she spilled the secret behind her inescapable appeal.

Horses and bathing suits.

That’s right. Kate Upton grew up riding horses in her Florida hometown, so all the time spent in boots and a bathing suit tipped her off to her own appeal.

“I grew up in Florida riding horses,” said the busty blonde. “So for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me.”

When asked about her exploding career as a swimsuit model, the 20-year-old Upton is uncharacteristically demure. “It’s like any job,” she told GQ. “You find your strengths and play them up.”
