Kate Upton Lands First American Vogue Cover (PHOTO)

Kate Upton is firmly embedded in the high fashion family.

The "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit model landed her first American Vogue cover for its June issue and we have to say, the 20-year-old looks gorgeous.

Named the "hottest supermodel on earth," the blond bombshell does what she knows best: Poses in a revealing outfit.

Upton has come a long way since becoming a superstar after gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2012 and again in 2013.

But Kate didn't want to do bikini shoots forever. After stating her high fashion ambitions, the style elite came knocking, first with a couture spread in Jalouse magazine last October, a Vogue UK cover in January and the mother of all fashion bibles, American Vogue, nabbed Kate for a chic shoot last November.

For someone who reportedly had to buy her way into the Met Gala in 2012 to being named one of the best dressed at the Gala this year, Kate is making huge strides in the fashion industry.

So does that mean Anna Wintour and Kate are besties now?
