Kate Upton Dishes On Vanity Fair Shoot, Dating & Mom's Model Looks

Kate Upton graces the coveted cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary edition and the model says the shoot was a surreal experience.

“It was incredible, the Vanity Fair cover with Annie [Leibovitz] and the whole team that was there,” she told Access Hollywood at the Style Awards in New York City, where she was named Model of the Year 2013. “It was so much fun… We were all dancing and laughing, and beautiful gowns.”

The 21-year-old blonde recently made more headlines – this time for being photographed with her mom (it became obvious where Kate got her model genes from)!

“She’s very good looking!” Kate told Access, when asked about her mother. “I really look up to my mom. She’s an incredible woman.”

While the model is happy she received her mom’s good looks, she was quick to add that her mother’s beauty is only one of her assets.

“She’s extremely smart, she’s very funny and I hope I have a lot more than just her looks, hopefully!” Kate said.

Despite rumors about the model’s love life (Kate has reportedly been seen with “Dancing with the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy), she said she is single.

“No, no updates,” she told Access, when asked if she’s dating. “And I haven’t changed my Facebook status yet. I’ll let you know.”
