Sun-kissed bikini babe Kate Upton was born in the chilly confines of St. Joseph, Michigan, in 1992, but appropriately enough was raised in sunny Florida. This sexy equestrian grew up riding horses and has competed nationally for the American Paint Horse Association. In 2008, Kate left horseback riding behind in favor of a modeling agency's cattle call in Miami. Her blonde ambition and MAMazing body separated her from the rest of the herd, and soon Kate inked a deal with IMG Models and moved to New York to start her career as a skinternational sex symbol. Kate has walked the runway for many top designers and is a spokeswoman for Victoria’s Secret and Guess Jeans. She was named “Rookie of the Year” for her mouthwatering spread in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and quickly rose through the racks- er, we mean, ranks- to become the cover girl for the 2012 edition. We'd like to go downtown on this Upton girl!
