Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl Kate Upton spends 90% of her time in a bikini, so much so that she recently raised the ire of the Catholic League. Meanwhile, photographer Terry Richardson is known for getting his subjects to pose in all sorts of scandalous ways. So what is the most shocking thing the two could do when teaming up for a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot? Why, put Upton in clothes! And make the images actually, gulp, classy. So transgressive!
I, for one, think Upton looks so stunning in this ’70s-tinged shoot shot at Beverly Hills Hotel. The burnt oranges look amazing with her coloring. The high-waisted pants accentuate her killer body. I mean, who knew she could look so classically beautiful in a tie-neck top? Check it out after the jump.
