The incomparable Kate Upton dons a gorgeous red strapless Lanvin dress on the cover of the September issue of Elle, which its newsstands August 20.
In the magazine, she discussed the downside of her modeling fame, specifically feeling terrible and like a toy after her first SI cover in 2012.
"Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something," she tells the magazine.
"I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman."
As for her current dating life ... there isn't much of one. "I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry," she says. "I'm just having fun."
"Obviously I have a very busy schedule, and relationships [aren't] a priority."
So there's still a chance down the road, guys ... but she is not a toy. We clear?
