Kate Upton Poses With Baby Animals, Still Manages To Find A Bikini To Wear

Is there a photo shoot where Kate Upton's not required in a bikini? Answer: Very rarely.

The Sports Illustrated cover girl is once again showing off her swimsuit curves -- albeit, only in a bikini bottom this time -- for Harper's Bazaar latest photo spread, titled "The Animal Nursery."

Joined by models Irina Shayk, Senait Gidey, Tilda Lindstam and Soo Joo Park, the 20-year-old is seen clad in high fashion garb as she poses with a plethora of baby animals -- including a seven-month-old gibbon wearing a leopard print diaper that rivals the Ikea Monkey's winter coat.

The spread, which was styled by fashion big-wig Carine Roitfeld and shot by Sebastian Faena, will run in all 26 international editions of the publication.

The blonde beauty wrote about the shoot on her Twitter, sharing a photo from the spread with the captions, "Cuddling with my favorite tiger :)."

Fashionistas -- or diehard Upton fans -- will remember that Upton also posed alongside animal models for Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book debut issue last year.

Hmm, is this a new formula for fashion spreads?
