HERE ARE a few bits from Kate "The Reluctant Sex Symbol" Upton's interview with Australian Cosmo, courtesy of Australian Cosmo.

On whether she feels more harshly judged by men or women:

At the beginning, by women. Then there was this weird change where women were more on my side, while men started judging me more.

On riding horses:

I think I was seven years old [when I started riding]. Then I started showing when I was 10 or 11 – it’s very calming, almost like therapy.

On when she feels sexiest:

Probably in sweatpants watching a movie! I’m like, 'I am killing it in these sweatpants!'

Also, Kate cites the Lanvin dress she wore during the 2012 Swimsuit launch her favorite style moment. Here's a reminder of what that looked like:
