Kate Upton (Getty, Sports Illustrated)Despite the Sports Illustrated leak last week, David Letterman still held his official unveiling of the latest issue last night. Cover model Kate Upton joined her fellow SI girls featured in the 2013 edition—Chrissy Teigen, Alyssa Miller, and Julie Henderson among them.
What makes this year's collection of barely-clothed gals unique? Well, for one, Kate has officially followed in the footsteps of the legendary Tyra Banks, Elle Macpherson, Christie Brinkley, and Paulina Porizkova, as the only ladies to ever have two consecutive covers for the magazine. Secondly, the photo shoots took place on all seven continents, including Antarctica, where the blonde worked her famous cleavage to the max in that iceberg-proof bomber jacket and itty-bitty bottoms. Chilling.
