Do You Prefer Kate Upton Sexy or Seductive?

When she landed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover earlier this year, Kate Upton quickly became a household name — and a lightning rod for controversy over her sexuality and sadly, size.

Then last week, we saw a different side of the rising star thanks to Vogue Italia, which glammed her up Marilyn Monroe-style and photographed her for its November cover, with the word “SEDUCTIVE” plastered across her chest (subtle, eh?).

In an accompanying behind-the-scenes video (below), though, the young model is quite seductive, posing and, uh, writhing in a variety of chic looks while being photographed atop a New York City high-rise.

Much has been written lately (including in American Vogue) about her ability to do high fashion — can a buxom blonde girl hit the runway for, say, Valentino? — but this Vogue Italia spread shows she definitely has versatility as a model. So which do you prefer? Tell us: Do you like Upton sexy on Sports Illustrated, or seductive for Vogue Italia?

Victoria Secret models move over. Her seductive look and curves bring old Hollywood to mind. I did not like the swimsuit issue at all for her, but the womanly photos of late are much more attractive.

I’m going to be as objective as possible.

She’s a pretty girl and her chest is amazing. But this Vogue Italia cover doesn’t prove she’s versatile- the focus is still on her boobs. I can’t see her doing high fashion. SI will make her a household name though.
