Twitter points out the lack of swimsuits in Kate Upton's "Sports Illustrated" covers, and they're right
Kate Upton was named Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition cover girl for the third time. She earned three different covers for the 2017 issue, without, as Twitter had a great time pointing out, wearing an actual swimsuit in any of them.
In all fairness, she does wear a white bikini bottom with the jacket.
Not “ready to wear.”
Three covers, half a swimsuit.
Where can we get one?
Don’t get us wrong, here: we’re not surprised. The word “swimsuit” in “Swimsuit Edition” is really just code for “near-naked body.” In fact, the issue more often features body paint than actual swim apparel.
During Tuesday night’s Valentine’s Day edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late-night host showed the three new covers featuring Kate.
“Is that really a swimsuit that you’re wearing?” Jimmy Kimmel asked. “Because it seems just like a hammock that got torn to bits.”
“I’m pretty sure it’s just a rope,” Upton replied. “It’s apparently Sports Illustrated nude magazine.”
