After she took the headlines with her Swimsuit Edition cover, Kate Upton has been the subject of many subsequent photoshoots, pictorials and brand-centric campaigns since. Following up a string of Terry Richardson-photoed outtakes, it was inevitable that official Richardson-created imagery would eventually surface in its entirety. With the recent announcement that Upton would be monopolizing the cover of the the July 2012 issue of GQ, the publication gives us a glimpse into the pictures from the feature. In typical Richardson fashion, the final images boast a unique edge and rough aesthetic, this time around placing Upton in a Fourth of July styled bikini and other various summertime clothing (or lack thereof).
