Kate Upton Lands 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

That was something of a breakout moment for her (and released without her consent at the time, apparently), and she's since gone on to feature in, among other things, Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.

Sports Illustrated has revealed its 2017 Swimsuit cover model, and she's a familiar one!

SI swimsuit editor, MJ Day said originally they didn't plan for three covers, but that Upton gave them so much material it was hard to narrow down and select just one shot.

"Thank you @si_swimsuit [Sports Illustrated Swimsuit] and @mj_day [magazine editor MJ Day] for inviting me to be part of an issue that features and celebrates beauty and confidence in every shape and size #siswim17 #grateful".

"If I got the cover, I would be really excited".

Kate Upton has done it again.

Just how big is New England's first major storm of 2017?
Boston and other areas in MA are now expected to get 12 to 18 inches of snow over the course of the day. Some areas of the Northeast have been enjoying a mostly snow-free winter, but that's about to change.

Upton has become only the fourth woman to grace the cover three times.

Serena Williams is happy to bare her body in the new swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.

Whether it's the photography, the interesting articles or just the sheer hype every February, this is the magazine world's Super Bowl. She first appeared in the magazine in 2011, at the age of 18. "They just don't ever talk to you at all.And then they finally gave me a call yesterday". One of the major highlights for Williams was getting to wear a thong bikini, which she has never done before. And this time around she made a decision to remind us three times.

"I think I'm feeling more comfortable this year, knowing my body more and my angles". Kate is training with celebrity trainer Ben Bruno, who uses a technique of "progressive overload", and slow, gradual, increases over a long period of time to build the flawless Sports Illustrated body for Kate. Kate makes sure to watch her diet carefully too and keeps the humor in her watchfulness. "For example, rather than having wine and doughnuts, you can have wine or doughnuts".

"They're very hard to read", the 24-year-old supermodel said with a laugh.
