3 words: Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.
Kate Upton made her Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue debut as an 18-year-old in 2011.
SI swimsuit editor MJ Day tweeted out the info sheet for her first photoshoot ever, which was in October of 2010 in the Philippines.
All of the stats are typical supermodel lingo, but the picture speaks for itself. The 18-year-old was a bonafide knockout, and SI knew they struck gold immediately. It wasn’t long after when the young beauty was chosen as the coveted cover girl for Sports Illustrated’s yearly Swimsuit Issue.
We’re used to seeing Kate Upton everywhere we look now, but below are even more photos of the beautiful supermodel even before she became famous. You’re welcome.
