Just in case they were worried about faltering sales of their issue — yeah, riiiight — the stars of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit Edition hit the red carpet in a slew of promotional events for the mag’s most talked about pictorial. And at last week’s party at uber swanky 1OAK in Las Vegas, Kate Upton completely outshone everyone, per usual.
While most of the other attendees opted for skin-tight, thigh-baring, and low-cut, she struck a sweeter note in a Grecian-style white one-shouldered gown, appearing significantly more covered up than the bikini-clad 2-D version of herself she was posing beside.
But according to celeb fitness guru David Kirsch, who helped her slim down in preparation for the shoot, Kate’s pre-strip down excercise regime wasn’t exactly easy; she had to drastically change her diet, run the bleachers at a local East Hampton high school, and go on a lemonade cleanse, lest she look even a teensy bit bloated. “Does she like running, sprinting?” he said. “No, I’d probably say that’s her least favorite thing to do. But she loves boxing and kickboxing, because she loves kicking my butt.”
Girl pulled it off, of course. And our hearts go out to the East Hampton teenage boys, who are just now learning that Kate Upton was running the track at their high school, probably wearing a sports bra.
