Kate Upton, latest ridiculous blonde from Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, was without a doubt a highlight and fully deserving of her “Rookie of the Year” honors. But unlike so many pretty girls of the past who percolated for a few years within the middle pages of the SI Swimsuit Issue before really busting out on their own, Kate has gone from zero to sexty in record time. She is suddenly everywhere. Guess, Victoria’s Secret, Beach Bunny Swimwear, even a Clippers game. If this whole Kate Upton ubiquity has caught you by surprise, we offer materials for study.
