Kate Upton, Vogue

No, that's not a heavily photoshopped pic of Charlize Theron or a newly unearthed snap of Twiggy—it's Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton!

You might not recognize her, what with all of those pesky layers, lack of a metallic string bikini and her long blond locks pinned up under that cap—but rest assured, it's our favorite "Cat Daddy" vixen on the inside of Vogue.

It must be a nice victory for the 20-year-old, considering she was snubbed by a lingerie giant earlier this year…

Victoria's Secret may have said "No, thanks" to Upton because her face was "too obvious"—that's what they said, not us!—but Vogue obviously had a different take. Leave it to Anna Wintour to make something trashy look classy.

The curvy beauty is all swaddled up in Michael Kors and Altuzzura for the magazine's July issue and sporting knee-high Givenchy boots, a turtle-neck sweater, teal cap and barely-there makeup.

We think she looks fantastic, actually, like a real runway model! Not at all like one of those tacky chick's you'd see on the cover of a men's magazine like GQ sucking on something phallic, like a popsicle.

Oh, wait...
