Kate, who is 5-foot-11, opened up to The Today Show about being on the cover and where she pulls her inspiration from.

"Honestly, being on the cover was my dream, so I just want to live in this moment, and know it's a huge career boost, but I'm just going to ride it out, see where it takes me," Kate told Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, Natalie Morales and Al Roker this morning. 

The leggy stunner also explained that she looks up to older models, like Christie Brinkley, Heidi Klum and Elle Macpherson, but she's certain that the age of the supermodel isn't over!

"In my opinion, everybody talks about how the age of the supermodel is dead, but I don't think it's dead," she said. "I just think people want more; we have new technology, so people want to see personalities, not just someone walking down a runway or just a face. That's why campaigns go to actresses now."

What do you think of Kate's cover? Let us know!
