What does everyone think of the 2013 Kate Upton Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover?

Some behind the scenes:

(nsfw perhaps? depending on where you work...)

What's y'alls take on the cover?  Does anyone know when it lands in stores?

Here's Kate with Terry Richardson in the famous Cat Daddy video:

I prefer the TR vid, the SI is not lively.

Already a discussion going on here

I have to agree I find the images pretty uninspiring given that they had one of the most exotic locations on the planet

Something is amiss with the size of her hooters compared to the size of her head, I smell digital alteration there big time, just not normal i mean look at those melons they are bigger than her head; i know she is well endowed, but not like i see in that photo.

We had a thread going on a few days ago asking models if they would do a nude shoot outside in freezing cold temperatures.  Apparently she did, at least implied.  Be as critical as you want, kudos to her for being professional.

Cover is okay-wish they'd ditch the body paint thing.Been done to death.Wish they'd let the sports shooters shoot these like back in the day with Walter Iooss.Maybe they'd bring a fresh perspective.

kate  was on  letterman  last nite  and seemed pretty normal...  but  she  didn't  flinch an inch  when  dave asked  why  they just didn't  do  the cover  background  with a greenscreen... Although  she didn't deny that...  she just said, "that is what my mother said!"  smile

But that  cover  is  so obviously faked  it  reaks!  smile

-oh and  why anyone  would recomend that  ridiculious TR  video  of  Kate "dancing" is beyond me!  What a  joke!  smile

Don't estimate crispness and sharpness of the views in the North (or South...). The sense of distance is gone. Everything - a mile, twenty or thirty is razor sharp.. and looks awfully close.

I'm going to be representing 37 of the penguins that they failed to get a model release from.  The rest are going with a big box firm that lured them with promises of freshly rotten herring.  only a lawyer could sell freshly-rotten as a concept sad

I'm tired of Kate Upton. Expose to the world to someone new instead of the same old tired retreads.

Yes, she's gorgeous. But we've seen her a million times.

Edit: I just realized what a hypocrite I am after reading my post. I'm just sick of HER. I never get tired of Miranda Kerr or Adriana Lima. And I'm still not sick of Dean Johnson (I know, I know).

Good for her!...Kudos for going out into the cold with next to nothing on....I don't think that cover was the best choice. I rather see the penguins!

I live in New England - I argue with nature all the time...

This poor sod has to live in old England...  I'd imagine that for him arguing with nature is second only to football...

They're probably not that big, but she's squeezing them so that obviously makes look melon sized, not good...imo!

Fantastic looks though, almost perfect!

Actually, the more I look at that pic the smaller her head looks, way out of proportion  with her boobs. Did they mistakingly crop and re-size her head on?

I like how the photographer gets a life jacket.  The model just gets a coat. tongue

The best thing about that cover shot is that it helped me forget last year's SI cover of Kate Upton which was easily the worst picture I have ever seen on the front of a major magazine. (Except of course, every picture of some ragged out "movie star" on the cover of virtually every fashion magazine in the US.)

It's better then last year, that's for sure (not saying much!).  Some of the pics on the SI site from the shoot are decent, others kind of boring.  I feel they could have done much more with such an awesome location. But then again I don't know much about swimsuit shooting or shooting in Antarctica so what do I know tongue

Any pic of Kate Upton is a gift : )

No one can compete with her curves!

She's in a league of her own.

I just finished shooting Kate tonight, her boobs are nowhere near the size shown on the cover.
