10 Things: Kate Upton
Who is the new Sports Illustrated model?
Before she hit the coveted cover of the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Kate Upton was strutting her stuff for Jenna Leigh Lingerie.

Posing in a series of sexy shots, it’s no wonder that Kate was chosen as the cover girl. Lingerie designer Jenna Blatstein told Celebuzz of Kate, “Kate is a naturally beautiful, young talented girl. She will go very far. This is just the beginning for her.”

Tongues were wagging Monday night when the model showed up on the Late Show with David Letterman. She joined her SI peers to present the Top 10 List of the night titled: “Top Ten Reasons This Year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Is The Best One Ever.”

Some of the top 10 quips included: “Because I said so, dammit,” and “Four of us are married to Newts.”

Dressed in a Marilyn Monroe-esque dress, the cover girl stopped traffic with her sexy style. What do you think? Could Kate be the sexiest SI model yet?
