Kate Upton: 2011 Year in Review [PHOTOS, VIDEO]

I know we already claimed that 2011 was the Year of the Meme, but upon further review, we’d be incredibly remiss if we didn’t award the year to Kate Upton. She burst onto the scene in January and month in, month out, she never stopped impressing us. Granted, it didn’t take much, but that’s a testament to how f***ing amazing this woman is. She topped just about every list of face-melers we published in ’11 and we can’t see her going away any time soon. Is there a tipping point with this supermodel? Absolutely not. To celebrate her breakout year, we’ve compiled a virtual timeline of her headlines, highlights, and hottest moments. Check ’em out below and tell us what you think is in store for this stunner in 2012.
