    Kate Upton........ Says:

    is the first model in over 10 years to have a back to back SI covers
    the first model in over 15 years to have a back to back solo SI covers ( Elle Macpherson holds the title – 1985, 86, 87)
    the first SI model to segue into HF with Vogue Covers, and covering or featuring in Elle, Harpers Bazzar, not been done since Elle Mac
    Not to mention Cosmo, EQ, Esquire and her recent contract with HF Edelman.
    These are all Facts not opinion. Girl’s on a wave! Vogue US is next!

    Again-great great boobs and face. But terrible body.
    Her toros is weird. No waist? Sorta full belly in comparison
    to her tiny thighs and narrow boy hips.
    Her body is really weird.

    Beautiful girl with such great curves but this cover is a fail from an artistic perspective, it is actually very plain and unflattering!

    @Kate Upton……..:

    get real….

    zero fashion runways.
    zero fashion campaigns.
    zero harpers bazaar,vanity fair,allure,rolling stone,american,french vogue ETC covers and MANY more. shes got some ways to go before you get too excited….

    she has fapping men at her feet. alot of models have. shes on her way to be like (*MAYBE* Kathy Ireland,Heidi Klum,Christie Brinkley,Tyra Banks) certainly not a top of the tops type tier super duper model like Cindy,Claudia,Christy,Naomi,Linda…LMAO. this big chipmunk face can only wish.

    ewwww Says:

    Antarctica for swimsuits? Stupid idea!
    She is still cheap and trashy, her body is weird not sexy! She is beyond overrated!
    I can’t even remember when was the last time I saw a great SI Swimsuit Issue cover.

    Kate Upton........ Says:

    How was I getting excited? I was talking about her portfolio in light of this record. The hysteria/anger in you response suggests your the one getting excited?
    Zero fashion campaigns? Shes the face of the shoe designer Edelman taking over from Arizona Muse and she’s the current face of Accessorize 2013.
    US GQ, US Esquire, US Cosmo, Muse, CR Fashion Book (first issue at that), and several reprints in diff countries
    She’s had editorials in Harpers Bazaar,and Elle covers.
    French Vogue? She’s done UK and Italian Vogue covers no mean feat which some other HF models her age have still NOT done. And I think Gisele was the last one on Rolling Stone. No Karlie, Candice, Doutzen, Hilary Rhoda NONE OF THEM have done Rolling Stone but you expect it of Kate?
    I’m sure she’ll get it as she obv sellls
    I don’t expect her to surpass the supers of the past but for a commercial model who only rose to prominence last year she’s done better than some of the the so called elite in her age range as well as other SI models. I anticipate more things for her in 2013 while her haters can keep spittle with rage, cussing at her as a fat wh8re

    Huh? Says:

    Kate Upton posts are quickly becoming as deranged as a Kristen Stewart posts. The typical sl^t, ugly, cheap, trashy, incomporable to insert-random-name and anyone who deviates and says anything nice or remotley positive about her is being paid to/a plant/an agent. Rinse & Repeat. LMAO

    Gia Says:

    I find it offensive! Really? Do all women have to expose themselves to the whole world just to make a cover? Poor taste! Shame on Sports Ilustrated for exposing women like sex objects to be seen and not heard!

    Lola Says:

    Looks like a Playboy cover. This issue has gone downhill over the years. They used to have beautiful athletic women who wore minimal makeup. Now…it’s a Victorias Secret catalog. Oh well, men will still buy it no matter what!

    Her bod is not the problem for me, I dont like her face. a dime a dozen!!! what happened to unique striking model beauties? she literally looks like a college co ed! not a model! suppose thats her appeal? average girl next door with big tatas? men are so easily pleased….

    Toni Says:

    I don’t mean to be a hater, but they could’ve had someone else to do the cover. I would’ve loved to see Candace Swanepoel on the cover.

    Also I read somewhere Terry Richardson has been helping her.

    kurious kitty Says:

    i think the people that are **** talking about her body just don’t get that she’s probably all natural and doesn’t starve herself or get plastic surgery like the VS/runway models do..she may not be extraordinary looking, but at least she’s not afraid to keep it real, unlike all the plastics in the modeling industry!

    DB Says:

    I think this annual issue is sort of an insult to real women everywhere.

    Don’t get me wrong – I’m a man and respond to this soft-core porn like most men do. But when I actually THINK about it, the fact that they promote this unrealistic example of what women look like, they undermine the “real” looking women out there in the world. Nobody should be held to these impossible standards, and it’s still unfortunate that Sports Illustrated feels the need to sell-out for a once a year boom in sales and profit.

    Just sayin’, there are 2 sides to the story.

    nika Says:

    I’m surprised that she’s not officially a plus size model because that is exactly what she is. I saw the pics that weren’t photoshopped and she’s definitely much bigger than the average model. Even people at Victoria’s Secret said that they don’t want her because she’s so out of shape. That being said I think many men would prefer her soft body to some skinny ass model and that’s why all these magazines love her so much.

    It’s too over the top. This country has gone to hell in a handbag.
    Young kids are going to see this all over the place?
    Classless. I usually enjoy SI but this year, no thanks.

    eww Says:

    What is the point of putting someone a coveted SWIMSUIT magazine when their body is so awful that they can’t even pose in a swimsuit and have to try to cover their heinous body with a winter coat? I can still see her gross stomach though, maybe she should move her arms and let her saggy boobs fall down and cover that gut. So dissapointed in you SI.

    @Della: tbh i think they’re natural – in some other shots i’ve seen they don’t look “perfect” the way fake boobs do

    i think her breast is natural cause it’s not standing up and not big from the base which is the upper

    K R Says:

    One of the tackiest covers to emerge from SI. More playboyish than SI.

    kate is NOT a plus sized model. The real plus sized models are people like Crystal renn ( before she lost all that weight again ) and uk’s Chloe Marshall who won a beauty contest at size 16.. Kate is curvier than say stick thin models on runways but that does not make her plus size.
    Saying we should appreciate Kate for trying to break stereotypes is plain b.s when she does nothing to break it herself. dancing the cat daddy for Terry Richardson in a tiny string bikini is not how you help other women embrace their curves.

    Lets face it , boobs sell cover and she only endorses that ! Not a role model, not someone selling body diversity,no!

    Is she pretty, yes. Is this cover vulgar, yes ! Is she even a good model, then definitely NO. Calling her a good mOdel is a slap on the face of other models who work hard at their jobs, trying to break stereotypes and dont employ their sexuality to do so. Kate is just smarter than all of them, plus she has one heck of an agent and PR team !

  53. 53
    Kara Says:

    @K R: There’s a debate about whether she’s a plus size or not so you can’t say that she isn’t because what are the standards for being a plus size? There are no written rules. I actually saw a fashion show in NYC with plus size models and many of them were not fat at all, just had curves like Kate. That being said I think she’d have so much more potential if she toned her body because she has a gorgeous face.

    K R Says:


    To the fashion industry anything over size 2 is plus sized. Putting models on the catwalk who wear size 4 and calling them plus sized models is one way of cutting back flak they received after passing away of models like Ramos sisters, isabelle caros etc. But you tell me is that is a plus size in real life. Kate wears a size 4 , or 6 at best. Is that plus size for a model who is 5 ft 10 inc.
    Why should her body be considered to be inspiration for plus sized women who wear say sizes 14 or so, when she isnt even plus sized.

    When the plus-sized debate first came to focus Vogue Italia put larger models on the cover, and Crystal Renn (then a size 12-14) was a regular on the catwalk – there seemed to be a discernible difference between catwalk models, Victoria’s Secret models and the plus-sized models. Few of us felt comfortable to comment on what those differences were, but casting Kate Upton into the category of ‘plus-sized’ models wouldn’t have happened.

    travis Says:

    curves what curves? she has thin shapeless chicken legs and a huge wide mid section with a long square shaped bum. thats what I like to call hill-billy body. without the boobs and blonde hair she is nothing special.
    The SI models of the 80s and 90s were stellar. curvy but in shape! Christie Brinkley’s hips on one of her covers were so juicy but you could tell she was toned. This chick is lazy looking.

  63. 63
    Kay Blood Says:

    Kate has a beautiful face but those over loaded titaaas look so large that she is turning into a Pam Anderson clone. Those huge breasts are not attractive Kate, you look CHEAP and deformed.

  64. 64
    Dee Says:

    I’ll admit, I think Nina Agdal is far more beautiful than Kate with a much better body (Nina is not too thin and she works out at the gym regularly). But I feel sorry for all the hate Kate gets. It’s not her fault MJ Day and the rest of the execs at SI are obsessed with her boobs and put her on the cover. I respect that they didn’t airbrush her but for a SWIMSUIT magazine, this falls flat. Her boobs look ridiculously large. Irina Shayk, Bar Refaeli, Lucia Dvorska, Esti Ginzburg, Izabel Goulart, Nina Agdal…all very beautiful women to choose from. Kate’s best year was her Rookie year when she wasn’t on the cover.

    African Girl Says:

    Your comment is so funny!!
    Seriously dude, what pkanet are you on?! The reason she is being hated is because she IS like the real women. People….women don’t think she shouldn’t be a model because she is not rail thin, she’s got a middle and worse…BOOBS! *Gasps*.
    So what unrealistic example are you talking about?!

    SamanthaCarolina Says:

    She just has super huge boobs… but the rest of the picture looks like a BIG girl. You can just see she’s only going to get fatter in a couple years, just looking at this picture it isn’t hard to picture her as 200 lb or more. She needs to work out.

  73. 73
    Ana Says:

    While I personally don’t think she’s ‘fat’ healthwise (I can think of some people who are FAT by health standards) she is considered “big” by modelling standards and that’s speaks for both runway and print. I think her problem lies in her proportions( She has no shape from the waist down) and the fact that her body’s not toned.
