The former Sports Illustrated cover girl, who has been making waves as a high fashion model of late, says looking effortless is the key to sex appeal.

Speaking in the new November issue of Cosmopolitan, she says: 'To me, what’s sexy is when you look like you’re having a good time. That, and when you look effortless and have messy hair.'

Double trouble: Miss Upton says she is both a girlie girl and a tomboy

Indeed she has done so for a number of different publications, including
the cover of Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book and French fashion title Jalouse, as well as men's title Esquire.

And most recently she tweeted a stunning series of make-up-free photos taken during a shoot in Namibia for Redemption Choppers dirt bikes.

In the new Cosmopolitan,
which hits newsstands on October 9, the model wears a bralet from the new
Cosmopolitan Collection for jcpenney line and shorts by Rag & Bone.

The shoot took place at a farm in Warwick, NY, where it appears Miss Upton was able to channel the tomboy side of her personality.

She said in the accompanying interview: 'I’m a little bit of a mix – a girlie girl and a tomboy.

'When I’m in a city, I’m girlie. But when I’m around a barn, I turn into a tomboy.'

Miss Upton has also fronted campaigns for Skullcandy headphones and Carl's Jr fast food since appearing on the cover of Sport's Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue earlier this year.
