Following weeks of speculation and rampant rumors, the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has leaked.
The cover star is, indeed, 19-year-old Kate Upton, who poses appropriately seductively in what may be the world’s most itsy, bitsy, red string bikini. Photoshopping aside — we’ll reserve judgement until we get a good look at an official cover, but there appears to be one or two, erm, anatomical discrepancies — the cover is standard fare for the magazine. (You can check out last year’s cover, featuring Russian model Irina Shayk, here.)
The issue makes its official debut on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight, but according to TMZ, “a few of the issues arrived early to a gas station in Michigan … and the pics are already making the rounds at breakneck speed.”
What do you think of the cover?
