Guy Aroch photographed the sweet and seductive model Kate Upton for the latest GQ Italia issue. The seven-image spread featured Upton is basic American style fashion which portrayed the "Girl-Next-Door" stereotype perfectly.

Kate’s sun-kissed skin was exposed with simple fashion choices and sexy poses. With minimal make-up and accessories chosen for the photoshoot, the attention was forced directly on Upton, as she steals the cover for GQ Italia August 2012.

Aroch’s use of props for this editorial was genius. The vintage car and patio deck gave this spread a natural and clean look. The soft lighting of the spread also added a unique element, as it softened Upton's features. Titled as the American Beauty, Kate Upton dominated this spread and the cover of GQ Italia August 2012.
