Back in December, Kate Upton was seen working the chilly shoot for the magazine spread on a boat with the Sports Illustrated crew.
Sports Illustrated chartered the boat for a ten day voyage between Argentina and Antarctica.
Apparently, they wanted to photograph Kate Upton for the forthcoming issue of the magazine with a backdrop of icebergs.

Since that now famous issue, which hit newsstands in February 2012, Kate Upton has become one of America’s top rated models.
Furthermore, she has made the tricky leap from swimsuit model to high fashion, appearing on the covers of American and Italian Vogue.
In photographs from the photo shoot, Kate Upton can be seen braving the incredibly cold minus temperatures in just a small white bikini top and tasseled bottoms.
Her feet, in thermal moon boots, are just as white as the snow piled up on the deck of the boat.
Eventually, Kate Upton was able to swap the ebb and flow of the Antarctic Sea for the firm ground of Antarctica itself.
Bizarrely, Kate Upton was greeted by a man dressed as an Oreo cookie once she stepped on terra firma.
It is not clear why there was a man dressed as a giant biscuit on the icy uninhabited continent, but he might have been overseeing the delivery of 5,000 Oreo cookies to the scientists based at the Palmer Station in the Antarctic Peninsula.
Kate Upton has landed her very first Vogue cover, going from Sports Illustrated to the pinnacle of high fashion in less than a year.
Dismissed as a girl with “the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy”, by Victoria’s Secret earlier this year, Kate Upton appears on this month’s issue of Vogue Italia with the simple tagline “Seductive”.
Wearing Fendi fur and a Patricia Field bustier, Kate Upton, 20, was photographed by Steven Meisel for the Helmut Newton-style November cover.
After shooting to fame at the start of this year thanks to her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, Victoria’s Secret famously dismissed Kate Upton as unworthy of its brand image.
But soon after her revealing GQ cover shot by Terry Richardson, Kate Upton landed her first profile in U.S. Vogue’s June issue, and the magazine dissected her high fashion appeal – did she or did she not, have any?
Now, with two inside shoots for U.S. Vogue under her belt, the most recent seeing her model classic sportswear in a crisp palette of red, black, white and blue for its own November issue, there is little doubt that the model is now a bona fide member of the high fashion set.
Hailed as “The New Girl” by American Vogue, Carine Roitfeld has also embraced her, shooting her as the cover girl for the first issue of her new fashion magazine CR Fashion Book.
The French former Paris Vogue editor told The Daily Beast: “I didn’t want a normal model. I wanted someone with a sensual body, someone who could be a mother for all these babies… I would not say she’s a controversial model, but she’s not a classic model. And I like that.”

And the model says she has no plan to embrace the super-skinny high fashion look.
“I don’t want to starve myself,” she told U.S. Vogue.
“I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl. You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.”
“I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable,” she explains.
“Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence.”
Kate Upton says she is particularly comfortable in a swimsuit because she grew up near the beach in Florida, where it was “no big deal”.
“When I lived in Florida, the swimsuit was the key wardrobe piece,” she says.
“I lived ten minutes from the beach, but I never sat there and said, <<I want to be every man’s fantasy>>.”
Kate Upton has become the target of pro-anorexia website SkinnyGossip following her participation in Carl’s Jr. burger commercial.
Despite shooting sexy images for Carl’s Jr. a few months back, SkinnyGossip has suddenly decided to slam model Kate Upton now by calling her a “cannibal”.
But before mentioning that, SkinnyGossip hit out at Kate Upton’s confidence on the catwalk referring to a recent show which saw her model a variety of swimwear.

“Guess who?! Yes, it’s the lovely Kate Upton, confidently lumbering up a runway like there’s a buffet at the end of it,” they said, before adding: “She looks thick, vulgar, almost pornographic – and she is a solid 30 lb too heavy for this outfit.”
Moving on to the burger images, which include Kate Upton laying on a car bonnet as she tucks into a tasty-looking cheeseburger, the website said: “I thought cannibalism was illegal?!? If that’s not a very different species of cow, Kate could be in legal trouble!”
The negative abuse went on to describe Kate Upton, 20, as a “squishy brick” and “piggy” before asking: “Has fashion become this?”
No doubt the ridiculous comments will just spur the pretty star on even more to model swimwear in her curvy figure.
Kate Upton first shot to fame when she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue last year and has since been on the cover.
Meanwhile, the pro-anorexia website continues to offer its visitors “starving tips of the day” and now has a forum.
Model Kate Upton became a household name overnight, and this year landed the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition.
But new images show Kate Upton wasn’t always so open about showing off her body.
In photos taken from the model’s high school yearbook, her celebrated body is covered with a button down shirt.
Kate Upton’s high school friends, who knew her just three short years ago as their fellow classmate, tell how her success seems to have blossomed overnight – shocking them all.
For they remember a flat-chested teenager who was “nerdy looking”.
Speaking candidly, a fellow classmate of Kate Upton’s from Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy in Melbourne, Florida, remembers the supermodel as a B average student who was the opposite of the “it” girl at school.

Wearing a white oxford shirt paired with a khaki kilt as her school uniform, Kate Upton, now 20, was required to go to church services everyday and her favorite pastime was riding horses.
But while nearly every man on this planet would love to date her today, Kate Upton surprisingly didn’t have any dates as a schoolgirl.
“Kate was the bridge between the popular crowd and the losers,” tells Kate’s high school classmate.
“She wasn’t really outgoing and she definitely wasn’t the prettiest girl in school.
“She was very slim, flat chested and sort of nerdy looking – I’m not sure she ever had a boyfriend in school.”
But three years on, you can bet every guy from her high school class is kicking themselves for not jumping at the opportunity to date the world’s hottest supermodel.
“I remember Kate being in and out of class a lot, traveling and trying to make it as a model,” tells her classmate.
“She was never overly confident or annoying about it, but one day she just left school and never came back.
“It was almost like she blossomed overnight and grew into this beautiful woman, never to be heard from again.
“Now, talking to all the guys from our class, we’re all regretful that we never asked her out.”
Kate Upton’s stardom has seen her land on the cover of several big name magazines, most recently men’s quarterly, GQ.
During the shoot Kate Upton recently revealed that she endured a slight mishap.
The model explained what happened in her interview, saying: “For the GQ photo shoot, we were on the ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece.
“All of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier – it was so embarrassing.”
