As if anyone’s looking at the jacket when bombshell-of-the-moment Kate Upton is baring nearly everything in a tiny white bikini bottom on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013 issue. But someone has to do the job, which is what we’re here for.

Unexpected Cover Shoot Location: Antarctica

We bet no one was expecting to see the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover girl in a down jacket, but then again, no one, not even Kate Upton herself, was expecting that it would be shot in Antarctica!

Kate Upton said the much-talked-about second Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover was the hardest shoot she’s done to date.

Aside from the usual stress of a photo shoot, she also had to deal with sub-zero temperatures and a body that threatened to shut down because of the freezing cold.

It might not have been much, but we bet Kate Upton relished every second she had in that white fur-trimmed parka!

Canada Goose is a trustworthy cold-weather outerwear manufacturer, so you know Kate Upton’s white fur-trimmed parka isn’t just all looks. The jacket was designed with the needs of post-war bush pilots in mind. It’s a jacket built to withstand the harsh winter elements of places like, let’s say, Antarctica!

Thank you, Kate Upton, for testing this jacket in Antarctica. If it kept her from turning blue while wearing only a bikini bottom, it’s more than good enough for us.

At the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Launch Party in New York yesterday, Kate was spotted looking quite elegant in a ruby-red strapless number by Lanvin. The dress was simple, but her one-of-a-kind nude slingback pumps from Valentino were stunning.

Besides the unique lattice pattern on the mesh vamp, the pair is decorated with a million tiny gold studs. It’s a fresh and edgy take on the classic nude.

If the intricate leather work appeals to your aesthetic sensibilities and you can handle walking in 5.5-inch heels, then go ahead and grab a pair at Neiman Marcus.
