Kate Upton Holds Baby Animals For Carine Roitfeld's Bazaar Shoot (PHOTOS)

Kate Upton appears in a hot new photo shoot -- but it's more snuggly than sexy. Kate stars in Carine Roitfeld's second portfolio since becoming Harper's Bazaar's Global Fashion Director, and we never thought we'd say this, but Kate's got some serious competition from her (four-legged) fellow models.

Titled "Carine on the Collections: The Animal Nursery," Kate poses in hot pre-fall looks with model colleagues Irina Shayk, Soo Joo Park, Tilda Lindstam, Senait Gidey... and a few unfamiliar animal faces. In most of the photos, shot by photographer Sebastian Faena, the girls hold baby tigers and monkeys instead of of-the-moment accessories. More like "Haute Cute-ture," right?

The spread will appear in Bazaar's international editions, and you can view the full story on their website. Who do you think is cuter, Kate or her furry friends?
