Sports Illustrated has been doing a great job cultivating extreme interest in their 2013 Swimsuit Issue, by releasing both the cover and a teaser video over the last couple of days. For the second year in a row super model Kate Upton has taken the honored spot as cover model, but you can be damned sure that there are many more half naked top models featured within. Also included in the magazine are Cintia Dicker, Irina Shayk, Kate Bock, Genevieve Morton, Hannah Davis, Natasha Barnard and many more. The models were shot on all seven continents, resulting in some beautiful sceneries.
Take a look at some of the highlights below, with a heavy emphasis on Upton, and if you have time you can scroll through the entire photo collection on the official website here.
