Midwest native Kate Upton always dreamed of being a model. Fantasy became reality three years ago when she walked into an open call and booked her first job. Since then she has been the face for Guess Lingerie. This is Kate's first appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Kate was photographed by Raphael Mazzucco in Boracay Island, Philippines. Swimsuit by Tori Praver Swimwear.
