Kate Upton Is Back: Gracing Three ‘Sports Illustrated’ Covers

Swimsuit edition.

Earlier today, Sports Illustrated released the three versions of the cover of the 2017 Swimsuit issue featuring Kate Upton. Upton made her return to the cover after appearing on it in both 2012 and 2013.

Last year, Sports Illustrated featured curvy model Ashley Graham and MMA fighter Ronda Rousey on its covers—neither fit typical industry standards for body type and beauty. Though Upton is a Sports Illustrated alum, her body type is also different than the industry norm.

As Upton told CNN in September, “I almost think the body is art, everyone’s perspective is their own and it comes from their own place. People are naturally tall, short, skinny, curvy, whatever. So I feel like limiting yourself to one label isn’t right, you can be everything.”

The issue, out today, also features Chrissy Teigen, Serena Williams, and Christie Brinkley, who starred on three consecutive SI covers starting back in 1979.

Take a look at the rest of Upton’s pictures as she graces the 2017 issue:
