Kate Upton nabs first-ever ‘flip-side cover’ for 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (photo)


The reports that Kate Upton’s reign of dominance as it relates gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue were an exaggeration. Upton and her curvaceous figure have landed upon the annual swimsuit pictorial periodical for two years in a row, but with the announcement last week that Nina Agdal, Lilly Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen — and their prominently featured behinds — landed on the cover of the 50th anniversary of the SI Swimsuit Edition, it was clear that Upton’s impressive consecutive covers streak had reached an abrupt end.

Not so fast my friend. It was announced early Tuesday morning that Kate Upton will in fact grace a Swimsuit Issue cover, albeit arguably on a technicality.

As you may know — duh — the official release date of the 2014 SI Swimsuit Issue is this very day, Tuesday, Feb. 18, and among the many features that celebrate the 50th anniversary of the issue is that it features its first-ever “flip-side cover,” and it’s only fitting that Kate Upton has nabbed it.
