It's no secret that Kate Upton and Sports Illustrated go together like peanut butter and jelly, but they may have outdone themselves when they released their Swimsuit 2013 edition earlier this year..
You saw the cover, but the magazine decided to recreate Daniela Pestova's look from her iconic cover back in 2000 for one incredible sexy body paint spread!
Yup, Kate isn't even wearing a swimsuit in the (above) photo - she is completely NAKED!!!
The curvalicious model stripped down and instead had the bikini painted on her! Because, is there any canvas more perfect than Ms. Upton's flawless bod?
Yeah, we didn't think so!
Sure she might not technically be wearing a swimsuit for the swimsuit edition, but you're not gonna hear us complaining!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the spread (below) AND a newly released never-seen-before behind-the-scenes vid of the body paint photo sesh AFTER THE JUMP!!! (TWO WORDS: JIGGLY BOOBS)
