After getting a small glimpse of her cover shoot on Tuesday (April 30), British Vogue finally released the full June 2014 cover starring Kate Upton this afternoon.

Flaunting her lovely curves in a floral bikini for the Mario Testino shot spread, the 21-year-old super model opened up to the June 2014 issue about everything from being a role model for girls to the Marilyn Monroe comparisons.

"It's weird that in the press they'll be like, your biggest fight was with the industry and the designers, and I'm like, no, my biggest fight was with my agents, trying to get them to sign me into the castings," Miss Upton explained. "I thought, how I'm going to come out of this will be an example for girls."

Meanwhile, Kate discussed the Marilyn comparison and said, "I always thought Marilyn was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her. But I feel like nowadays it's easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don't think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don't have that."
