“She’s like, the girl that’s born to be a bombshell. It’s already there.”
So you try and keep it a secret but this is Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue which means everyone in the world would be hunting it down to see who makes the cover. The 19-year-old stunner Kate Upton was slammed up by the magazine’s team of makeup artists and hairstylists — though they admit she didn’t need much help looking gorgeous. The 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s cover girl is usually revealed on The Late Show With David Letterman. This year, however, we found out early that Kate Upton had been bestowed the honor. (William DeFries spotted the cover at a Walgreen’s in Michigan on Monday—pre-Letterman—and then shared it with Bar Stool Sports and pretty soon it was everywhere.) The shoot was shot in Sydney, Australia. Once again there is plenty of armpits exposed which is a must in fashion shoots now. In the case of Kate it was for her to keep her hair held in the Sydney wind. Magic is real and dreams come true at 19.
