Kate Upton is once again headlining the cover of Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit issue—and this time, it might just be her sexiest appearance yet. She landed her first SI cover in 2011 and became the back-to-back cover in 2012 and 2013.
She is featured on a special triple-cover. SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day says it wasn't planned, "but when Kate was actually shooting, we were trying so many different looks on her and each photo was coming back just as great as the next."
The blonde bombshell shared all three covers with her 4.1 million followers on Instagram. Her caption reads: "Wow, I feel so honored and excited to be back with Sports Illustrated!! Thank you @si_swimsuit and @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."
We found a short behind-the-scenes clip of the star on IG. At the beginning of the video, she is seen wearing a sparkly blazer paired with white bikini bottoms and then she continues to play around in skimpier outfits.
Welcome back, Kate! SI fans have sorely missed you.
