Kate Upton Celebrates Her 'SI Swimsuit' Cover

Kate Upton shows off her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover at its launch party on Tuesday (February 14) at Crimson in NYC.

The 19-year-old jetted to Australia to shoot the 2012 cover wearing a barely there bikini.

“That was one of the first photos from the first shoot. It was my favorite swimsuit … I felt sexy in it but confident,” Kate recently shared.

“I have had a great year,” she added. “For me, this is groundbreaking.”

Also pictured: Kate arriving at the Ed Sullivan Theater earlier in the evening to tape another appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman.

    I really don’t understand why a magazine cover is so huge… they went to the ny stock exchange for crying out loud. What is the world coming to?

  • Lola

    What an accomplishment. LOL.

  • Jenna

    How come most models are skinny as a stick but have such huge heads?? Is that the new kind of beauty nowadays?? Weird…

  • Annie

    Huh? What? Why is this girl turning up everywhere? Stock standard face, no waist, hips or butt, seems kinda short for a model. Is she dating someone?

  • crazylovatic

    ehm, im sorry, but im curvy, and i can you that shes not curvy at all, lol, just so people can stop shoving it down everybodys throat that shes curvy & yadayada, because, the only curve i can see is her hair.x

  • crazylovatic


    & i can tell you*

  • Anne

    She is not very pretty.

  • t

    That was one of the worst SI swimsuit covers ever.

  • cw

    what happened to her hair color over nigth? ystdy if was nice blonde – this is straw fake orange

    looks like a totally diffeerent person

  • joy

    her body is square and her legs are so skinny, no prportions at all. Are we supposed to thunk that is pretty or sexy???

  • Anon

    She seems kind of annoyingly ditzy, but I personally think she’s a beautiful girl with an amazing body. I don’t get why she’s getting so much hate.

  • misszm

    @Annie: I actually think she has a beautiful and curvy body. She’s not your typical stick figure model. And how can you say short for a model? She’s 5’10! That’s not short by any means.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …umm, why is she getting so much press now?! …I don’t get it.

  • Kevin

    I’m not a fan by any means but I actually think she looks great here. This is the only time I have ever thought her face looked pretty

  • someone

    she looks like lucy hale, except blonde!

  • sorella

    I don’t get the appeal, she looks like a regularpretty blond girl you see at the mall. No WOW to her at all.

  • @someone

    You mean the scrunched up face? Totally

  • jj

    Grab your ankles baby!

  • Lia

    Hater comments for pretty girls on this site almost always get thumbs ups and compliments get thumbs down. Many of the haters are women I find that sad

  • http://ae iamgod

    Lots of jealous fatties on this site

  • Joysen

    he’s a beautiful girl, but I don’t get the sense that this cover has anything to do with either the bikini or the beach location. It should have been a better picture. Kate Upton Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2012 Photoshoot Hot video here

  • ali

    she is 5’10 !!! amazing .
    she is sexy tall and stunning
    congrats Kate !

  • Nikki

    Her body (boobs) are real and she doesn’t need padding…not like last years cover (who got it because she dates Cristiano Ronaldo). I think SI Swim is not what makes top models anymore. It is all about being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Those are true supermodels.

  • Shawna

    That’s a swimsuit? You could have given her two bandaids and a cork and she’d be more covered.

  • belowme

    I have never found any of the S.I. cover swimsuit models to be stunning it’s all political and nepotism of some sort …. The Media Dont’ Know Sexy !

  • LG

    The bottom of that bathing suit is disgusting. I’m not a prude, but seriously, do we need to go this far with a bathing suit?

  • Warren

    Kate is so hot and sexy. The most beautiful woman ever on the cover I would think.
