Fresh from her turn starring in a Mercedes-Benz Super Bowl commercial, 20-year-old "It Girl" model Kate Upton is on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue for the second year in a row. The magazine had planned to make the announcement tonight on the Late Show with David Letterman, as it has for several years, but after a fashion blogger spoiled those plans by breaking the news Friday, SI confirmed it via Twitter the same day, tweeting,
"POLAR BARE: @KateUpton in Antarctica is your 2013 SI Swimsuit Cover Model!"
along with the cover photo showing the buxom Upton wearing white bikini bottoms with an open white fur-trimmed jacket and nothing underneath it. The Florida native also took to Twitter, tweeting about the cover, "I look... Cold lol. Took us 2 months to thaw out." The 2013 Swimsuit Issue, which will feature photos of models on all seven continents, will hit newsstands tomorrow (February 12th).
