Kate Upton, for the second year in a row has landed the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. This is the first time a model has landed back to back cover spots on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit since Tyra Banks did it back in 1996 and 1997.
“Everything about the picture is perfect,” Swimsuit issue editor MJ Day tells PEOPLE. “The light, the background, the suit. It’s different from what we’ve done in past years, and it was an exciting moment for us to have those photos work out.”
Congratulations to the Florida native, Kate Upton.
