Kate Upton Wears A Bikini In A Zero-Gravity Space Chamber For Her Third Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Cover


Kate Upton’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition covers keep getting more and more elaborate. After making her debut on a beach in a skimpy red bikini for her first cover in 2012, Upton posed in white bikini bottoms and a matching –open – parka for her 2013 cover, shot in Antarctica (she suffered severe frostbite and hypothermia, including losing her hearing and eyesight, after stripping down in such dangerous conditions).

Now, new reports say that Upton’s third cover will show the 21-year-old model in a silver bikini in a zero-gravity space chamber for Sports Illustrated’s 50th anniversary issue.

The model’s cleavage and big hair made her “look like something out of [1968 campy sci-fi film] ‘Barbarella,’” sources told Page Six.

Sports Illustrated may have taken inspiration from Jimmy Fallon: last year, after Upton’s Antarctica cover was released, he joked that her next cover should be spot in space.

“Think about this; there’s no gravity,” he said.

Sources said that the magazine has also photographed a series of modeling legends and past Swimsuit Edition stars for the issue, including Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks, Carol Alt and Bar Refaeli.

Although the cover may be the most elaborate yet, it should be far safer for Upton than her previous Sports Illustrated cover shoot.

"When I came back, I was losing hearing and eyesight because my body was shutting down, it was working so hard," Upton told the TODAY Show last year.

She said that it was months before her she recovered.

“They promised somewhere warm” for her next cover, she added.

“There are several stages of hypothermia and when it becomes severe blood vessels in the extremities, including the eyes, constrict to conserve energy and keep it near the body’s vital organ," Dr. Rupe Hansra, the senior director of eye care at LensCrafters, told the Huffington Post at the time.

"It is alarming that Kate Upton found herself in such an advanced stage of hypothermia, but her vision should make a full recovery."

Maybe for the 2015 cover, Sports Illustrated will finally take poor Kate Upton back to the beach.
