Kate Upton is only 21 years old but she has quickly become a highly-demanded and talked-about top model. Managed by IMG Models, Kate has only been in the business since 2008 but since then has appeared on several magazine covers such as Vogue Italia, British Vogue, Cosmopolitan, French ELLE, GQ, and Esquire; but she is most loved for her appearances in Sports Illustrated.
Kate’s fans already think she’s something other-worldly; but in her recent shoot for Sports Illustrated where she defies gravity in a zero-gravity environment wearing nothing but tiny bikinis, she’s gone to a whole new level.
The images were used in the magazine’s 50th anniversary edition and were a once-off execution. Kate managed to look graceful and still amazingly sexy while floating around the zero-gravity plane, the “G-Force One”, at the Space Coast Regional Airport at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
Kate looked completely at ease in the conditions originally designed for astronauts to be trained for their missions into space. The idea is original and has been pulled off extremely well, and Kate’s aplomb has had a lot to do with that. Any other publication that attempts to replicate this will have a difficult standard to live up to.
The magazine was released on the 18th of February, and features models Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge, and Nina Agdal on the front cover while Kate appears solo on the back cover following her cover girl spot over the last 2 years.
