Kate Upton, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover girl and one of the most promising young models in America, is back with a Beach Bunny swimwear video after surviving a controversy over a sexy YouTube clip posted last month.
YouTube took down a Terry Richardson video of Kate Upton doing the Cat Daddy dance last month, ostensibly for violating the site's rules about inappropriate content. The video left little to the imagination, and concluded with a slow-motion clip of her shaking her nearly-nude body for the camera, but it did not include any actual nudity, and the site promptly allowed the video to be re-uploaded, and apologized for mistakenly taking it down.
Now Kate Upton's back with another bathing suit video, this time for Beach Bunny swimwear. Filmed in Belize, the video, like pretty much everything else featuring Upton, is full of beautiful beaches, skin and little else.
The swimwear line Upton is promoting in the video clip is cut to be flattering when worn by curvier women, and features a wide range of suits.
As she gains fame, and goes from just a pretty face to an international sex symbol and person of intrigue, she is spending more time speaking on camera, and the new video includes snippets of Upton speaking about her experience filming the clip in Belize.
It's been by far my favorite shoot so far, not just because of the beautiful location but because I was able to design part of the collection, she tells the camera while bedecked in fabulous Beach Bunny swimwear. I've been involved with the company for 18 months now, I've grown so much as a model. I've gone from walking the runway for them to being here in Belize.
Kate Upton burst onto the swimsuit modeling scene when she was selected to be the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover model this year at just 19 years old. She first appeared in the swimsuit edition last year, when she was named Rookie of the Year.
Born in Michigan, she was raised in Florida, where she had a distinguished career as a young equestrian. She started modeling in 2008 after being signed to a contract with Elite Model Management at an open casting call. She is now represented by IMG Models and lives in New York City.
