Kate Upton Is Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue Cover Model
The cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue has been the buzz all morning. So who was the lucky lady to make the cover? None other than Kate Upton.The 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has hit newsstands, with model Kate Upton as its latest cover girl.
The 19-year-old flaunts her stuff on the cover in a tiny red-and-brown, sparkle-covered bikini with a view of the waters of Australia behind her.
"That was one of the first photos from the first shoot," she said in a telephone interview before the big reveal on Monday. "It was my favorite swimsuit. ... I felt sexy in it but confident."
This is Upton's second time appearing in the annual SI issue, but her first time on the cover.
"This means so much for me personally," she told People magazine. "This has always been my dream."
The cover, which leaked early Monday, was officially unveiled on TV Monday night on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS. I'm sure this cover will be talked about for a long time.
And ladies, when I saw it, it made me want to stop eating forever! Haha. Here are a few
other pics from the shoot.
