Bow down, basics. Kate Upton may have lost out on the cover of Sports Illustrated's 50th Anniversary issue to a plastic doll by the name of Barbie but its her zero gravity pictorial for the same issue that has everyone talking. Shot by James Macari at Cape Canaveral, the stunning bombshell looks completely comfortable with spinning around inside the Zero G plane, which soars to such great heights that everything inside becomes a lot less grounded. Is now a good time to discuss remaking Barbarella?
Whilst Kate may not be front and centre on newsstands this month, it is important to note that she has once again made a little bit of history by featuring on the magazine's first ever flip-side cover.
Which is great. As is the multiple bikini shots of Kate which can be enjoyed here. For an issue that isn't being marketed as being Kate Upton-centric it seems to me like you won't be able to miss this uber babe when you flick through Sports Illustrated's 50 Years of Sexy later this month.
