Let me just say this. Kate Upton isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so you better get used to it. This will be the second year in a row that the 20-year-old model will be the on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition. Because, who else would they choose?
Upton has joined the likes of Tyra Banks, Christie Brinkley, and Elle MacPherson who have all been featured on the cover of this special issue more than once. I think that she deserves the whole spread, but hey, that’s just me.
Upton’s cover was shot in Antarctica in the freezing cold abroad a cruise ship. She sure doesn’t look like she is in below freezing temperatures with her amazing pictures. The magazine also features six other models posing on all the continents of the world. But, I bet it’s safe to say that Upton looks the best.
Her super sexy cover was supposed to be a secret, but not surprisingly it was leaked on Friday. Originally, Upton was supposed to appear on The Late Show With David Letterman with nine other models on February 11 to reveal the cover. Upton didn’t seem too upset by the reveal. She tweeted on Friday, “We can finally talk about Antarctica! Took us 2 months to thaw out.”
Last year, Upton got a storm of media attention when she posed in a barely-there bikini. Upton isn’t letting the haters bring her down. In the past, she has been criticized for her weight but that definitely won’t be stopping her anytime soon. I think that Upton has been taking the criticism and using it as motivation. She has recently been the center of Sam Edelman’s advertising campaign which just proves that she is a forced to be reckoned with.
