    Kate Upton has just landed her third Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover. That is super impressive. From my perspective, these SI models come and go crazy fast. The modeling world in general has to have the highest turnover rate of all the industries, I would think. Though Kate Upton just seems to be a constant.

    It's crazy to think that Upton is only 24 years old. I feel like she has been around quite a bit longer than that. But that's probably just that turnover rate. She landed her first SI swim cover at only 19 years old. So a good 5-6 years in the business and she's already been this prominent in the industry. Not to mention, she has been in a few movies, commercials, etc, etc.

    The theme of this year's issue is around body acceptance, age inclusion, and body diversity. It's one of the reasons Upton was so happy to have it this year. Uptold told the SI editor, "To have an issue that focuses on that is really an amazing moment for me because I think it’s important for everyone to be the best they can be, but not to strive to be a company or industry’s idea of perfect".

    Here is a link with all the pictures and behind the scenes video.

    She'll be around for a while I think. I agree, it's impressive she was able to break through the one and down threshold. And now that she has, I'm pretty sure she will be another Cindy Crawford, with several covers to come.
