Kate is styled by Caroline Christiansson in sensual textures and sandy colors. Photographer Gilles Bensimon is on location in Israel's Negev Desert, celebrating Upton, who heads the list for the first time.
"Our annual Hot 100 issue is about so much more than physical beauty, although this year's nominees have that in spades," said Robert Price, Chief Operating Officer at Maxim. "Now more than ever, we need to celebrate smart, powerful women who are breaking boundaries, shattering glass ceilings and showing us what is possible – none more so than our incredibly talented cover star, Kate Upton."
This year's Hot 100 list features a diverse array of honorees that span 13 categories – "The Powerhouses," "The Divas," "The Bombshells," "Funny Girls," "Inner Circle," "Naughty By Nature," "Wonder Women," "TV Temptresses," "The Cool Ones," "Power Players," "The Untouchables," "Good Sports," and "Drama Queens."
On Jan. 31, top model and talent Kate Upton wrote a Tweet that sent the value of GUESS stock into a nosedive. Upton wrote: “It’s disappointing that such an iconic women’s brand @Guess is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo.” At the time, Kate said nothing further about the details of her allegations against Marciano.
Kate Upton has now detailed her allegations against Marciano, while addressing the larger issues around body shaming and harassment in the fashion industry, in an interview with TIME magazine. Photographer Yu Tsai has corroborated details of Upton's allegations, as a witness of her interaction with Marciano.
TIME: What happened with Paul Marciano?
Kate Upton: "After the first day of shooting the Guess Lingerie campaign [on July 25, 2010], Paul Marciano said he wanted to meet with me. As soon as I walked in with photographer Yu Tsai, Paul came straight up to me, forcibly grabbed my breasts and started feeling them — playing with them actually. After I pushed him away, he said, “I’m making sure they’re real.”
Former GUESS model Kate Upton added her voice to the #MeToo convo Thursday morning, using social media to speak out against Paul Marciano, co-founder of the company.
Upton doesn't say if she is among the harassed women, but the inference is clear, with Upton saying that Marciano "shouldn't be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women."
Her post brought responses from others about Marciano's alleged misconduct.
Few people doubt that talent Kate Upton is a badass! With a body and breasts that have been the subject of derision and adulation for several years now, Kate has never faltered to those who seek to bring her down. Upton's self-confidence is outstanding and she pushes herself with a strong personal agenda.
