Leave it to Kate Upton to heat things up a bit … or a lot! The curvy supermodel outdid herself in a new photo spread for V Magazine’s latest issue.

Set in a vintage-looking European hotel, the 20-year-old stunner is the picture of perfection for the 1960's-flavored feature. Photographer Sebastian Faena sang Upton's praises after the gig, noting that she definitely has a flair for the dramatic.

“Kate was an actress during this shoot. A good one, very sensitive and played the part of a confused, kept housewife with irony. She has star quality. She is like nobody else today.”

Meanwhile, British Vogue honcho Alexandra Shulman also complimented Upton on her mass appeal, “It's very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them. When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model - although, let's face it, she's hardly a heffalump!”
