Kate Upton will give Sports Illustrated readers an encore as she lands on the cover of the magazine's swimsuit issue for the second year in a row.
The 20-year old beauty from Michigan has been all over the place in the last year. She landed a feature in U.S. Vogue and the November 2012 cover of Vogue Italia, Kate was also ranked the 5th sexiest model on MODELS.com's "Top Sexiest Models" of 2012 list and No. 3 on AskMen's Top 99 Women for 2013 list.
Kate joins an elite list of models who've commanded the cover multiple years in a row: Christie Brinkley went back-to-back-to-back in 1979, 1980 and 1981; Elle MacPherson did the same between 1986 and 1988; Paulina Porizkova posed in 1984 and 1985 and Tyra Banks starred in 1996 and 1997.
TMZ was the first website to capture photos from the shoot. They posted pics back in December, although they didn't know at the time Kate was shooting the S.I. cover.
"We can finally talk about Antarctica," Kate tweeted when the news broke on Friday. "Took us 2 months to thaw out"
The issue hits newsstands February 12.
