Kate Upton is here in body paint and on the cover of the 2013 SI Swimsuit edition.

Supermodel Kate Upton, who was named the 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl, tweeted a first look at herself in body paint.

Upton, 20, couldn’t contain her excitement at being the first SI swimsuit model to adorn back-to-back covers since Tyra Banks did in 1996 and 1997. “I’m so FREAKING EXCITED about this issue!” Kate gushed.

On a side not, that is an amazing job of body painting if you take a look at the depth of field on the paint it is amazing. You can take a look at all the photos on SI at http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2013_swimsuit/painting/

It was already revealed that Kate is the cover girl for the second year in a row. Here is the cover


For all you Upton haters out there, we have one thing to say… Shout the hell up, women are supposed to have curves, not look like Justin Beiber circa 2011.

As a bonus here is her calendar shot as well.
