Kate Upton is naked and covered in nothing more than silver body paint, and Sports Illustrated has the video.
Upton appeared in a photo shoot for the sports magazine, and in the shot she recreates one of the iconic covers of SI’s Swimsuit Edition covers — showing her in nothing but body paint.
Kate appeared willing to try out the body paint, though it did seem to make her a bit self conscious.
“I definitely feel naked,” Kate said during the shoot. “Because I am.”
The video of Kate Upton naked and in body paint was posted this week by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s YouTube channel, and has already racked up close to 20,000 views. It’s also been shared around the internet, including celebrity news outlet TMZ.
Though Kate Upton may need to appear naked for her line of work, she is apparently against women being expected to dress sexy on command. Last week she spoke out against the need for women to wear revealing or “sexy” Halloween costumes.
“I don’t think that Halloween is about being too slutty or too sexy,” she said. “I think it’s about committing to your costume.”
Kate has walked the walk. In the past, she’s dressed up as a zombie Marilyn Monroe, with Marilyn’s iconic white dress and body paint that made it look like bones were popping through her rotting flesh. Not the most wholesome costume, but a far cry from improvised costumes that include little more than underwear and animal ears.
At the same time, Kate has said she’s more that comfortable with her body.
“The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change,” she said in an interview earlier this year. ‘I can’t change my bra size … They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”
