Model bares it all … almost
Kate Upton, this years Sport Illustrated: swimsuit edition cover girl, will grace the cover of GQ’s July issue. Famed celebrity photographer Terry Richardson hopped behind the camera for the photo shoot to capture the stunning blonde in all her glory.
In the upcoming issue, Kate Upton sports a number of tiny bikinis poolside. In one of the photos where Upton is pulling herself up out a pool a faint out line of her nipple is visible.
However, the one that seems to be garnering the most of notoriety is one where Kate Upton is lying topless on a spread of grass with her hands covering her breasts.
Kate Upton, the 20-year-old, Michigan-born model, first found fame when she uploaded a video to YouTube of herself dancing the Dougie at a Los Angeles Clippers game.
Earlier in the year, Upton and Richardson teamed up to shoot a video to TerryTV, featuring the blonde dancing the Cat Daddy is the same tiny, red bikini that she wore on the cover of the SI cover. The video gained so much controversy that YouTube removed it.
Kate Upton’s fame has also been helped fueled with the controversy that has surrounded her since the beginning of her career, given her decisions to sports little next to nothing. In the upcoming The Three Stooges, by the Farrlley brothers, Upton adorned what has been called a “nun-kini.” The costume was so risqué that the Catholic League declared it offensive.
“I can see why the Catholic Church would be upset with me,” Kate Upton said. “But it was just for fun, and I try not to take it more seriously than that.”
During the interview with GQ she was asked about her decision to showcase her nearly perfect body the way she does, responding, “I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me.”
Kate Upton has posed for Dooney & Bourke, Garage and was the face of Guess.
