It's hard to fully express the joy we felt yesterday when we learned that swimsuit model/curves advocate Kate Upton will grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue for the second year in a row. It was a victory for all Semi-SFW aficionados the world over.

Several times over the last year since her first cover, we've paused to pay homage to the 20-year-old Upton, the finest dougie-dancing animal-frolicker who has ever dated a Jets QB. To celebrate her ascendance to supermodeldom (it's the first time since 1988 that a model has won consecutive SI covers), feel free to join us in watching a sampling of some of her finest work captured on video.

Feel free to send the Pulitzer directly to Gothamist HQ. We'll be there for the foreseeable future watching the video below:
