Kate Upton Topless Photos: Hot Pictures In Antarctica For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue [PHOTOS & VIDEO]

"Kate Upton Antarctica" is officially trending, but why? Kate Upton has had a huge year, rounding out her diverse projects in Antarctica where she posed for the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The blond bombshell, whose golden locks and curvaceous figure once pigeonholed her in swimwear modeling, has been working in New York and abroad for many other apparel brands.

Kate Upton exploded on the Internet after a video of her in a skimpy suit doing the "Cat Daddy" dance went viral. Today, the IMG-represented model works in New York and abroad for many other projects outside of swimwear and resortwear.

Although Kate Upton has been making strides in the world of high fashion, she wasn't too busy to pose in Antarctica for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover -- for the second year in a row.

The 20-year-old went from sex kitten at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit to wholesome all-American model in Vogue in less than 12 months. Her second consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover features Kate Upton in a white Letarte by Lisa Cabrinha bikini bottom and topless, wearing a white Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber coat with a fur hood.

This is her second time on the cover, but her third time in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. She was chosen as "Rookie of the Year" in 2011.

The issue will be officially unveiled on Monday, Feb. 18 on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman." For the first time, the issue is global. The 17 Sports Illustrated models are photographed in all seven continents. Kate Upton's Antartica photo heated up the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.


In 2012, fashion fans watched Kate Upton morph into a high fashion darling from her humble swimsuit beginnings. Having done shows such as Beach Bunny Swimwear at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami in July 2011, she was pegged as no more than a pretty face with a body that shined in a swimsuit.

Now, she has been profiled and featured in publications like American Vogue, British Vogue and Vogue Paris alum Carine Roitfeld's new magazine CR Fashion Book.

We can't wait to see what's next for Kate Upton. Antarctica? Paris? Egypt? Who knows where she'll end up next!
