Just when February could use a beautiful model in a striking bikini, often on an exotic beach, Sports Illustrated comes through with their annual Swimsuit Edition with the new crop of supermodels amazing female athletes, brightening the winter blues and reminding us that summer will be here soon enough. Appearing on her third cover – and on three cover versions for 2017, is the rule-breaking, game-changing Kate Upton.
Kate first appeared as a rookie in the 2011 edition and sky-rocketed right on to the cover of the 2012 edition, curves and all, which had the impact of an earthquake on the modeling industry. Kate’s appearance on the 2012 cover began an industry-wide conversation about body-acceptance and womanly curves, opening the doors for other models who were anything but stick-straight, for both fashion and beauty.
At only twenty-four years old, Kate has gone from a local, commercial Miami model to fronting campaigns for Guess!, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, David Yurman and Sam Edelman, to starring as the heroine in the mobile app for Game Of War: Fire Age. After appearing in several movies, including The Three Stooges, and alongside Cameron Diaz in The Other Woman, Kate has two new movies coming out this year, The Disaster Artist and The Layover.
What size IS sexy?? Size is clearly irrelevant in that conversation when you consider women like Kate. Kudos Sports Illustrated for proving that beauty and sex appeal comes in all shapes and sizes!
