In a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit coup not seen since Tyra Banks swept the '96 and '97 editions, Kate Upton indeed graces the cover a second time. It's just one year after her original cover rocketed the swimsuit model and her
boobs bosoms to international fame (they've been causing trouble ever since), but things are pretty different this time around.
First, the cover was shot in Antarctica, a far cry from SI's typical indiscriminate tropical locale. Second, her bottoms actually fit her, making men and women alike that much more comfortable previewing the cover at work. Also, she traded up her itty-bitty top for fur-hooded bomber jacket, and still managed to show what looks like even more cleavage. She's talented like that. And finally, this cover comes complete with a mystery involving a giant snow Oreo. We look forward to an explanation when the mag hits newsstands, but we can know right now how the super model feel about it: She tweeted, "I look...Cold lol."
