Just when you think Kate Upton might be ready for a break, a nice long vacation, or simply a day off, she whips out another out-of-this-world project.

Pairing up with Net-A-Porter's online magazine, The Edit, Kate rocks a classic color combo of black and white, also known as one of spring's reoccurring and hottest trends. Looking effortlessly sexy and classic at the same time (how does she do it?!), Kate spoke with the magazine about her rise in the fashion industry and the ongoing struggle to cope with unnecessarily harsh criticism as a model.

Widely known for her work with brands like Bobbi Brown and GUESS, the four-time SI Swimsuit model and notorious bombshell also opened up about her history with horses. Did you know she had already won five world championships by the age of 15?

Her competitive nature and steadfast determination are clearly the foundations for her ultra-successful career, and over here at Swimsuit, we're just happy to call her one of our own!
