Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2012 is out and my my, our suspicions have been confirmed. Model Kate Upton was the chosen girl this year to grace the cover of SI 2012 in a sexy little red bikini.

Shot in Australia, the pic depicts the model in all her curvaceous glory as she poses in front of the camera. In true SI form, her string bikini barely covers the pinupy model, but there’s one thing that’s definitely covered: the RED trend. Red swimsuits are all the rage this year, and Sports Illustrated 2012 embodies the main color of love in an ode to Valentine’s Day .

Stay tuned for more posts on the bikini styles featured by Kate Upton and the rest of the models in the Sports Illustrated 2012 Swimsuit Issue.

Some of our favorite brands, such as Beach Bunny Swimwear, Agua Bendita, and L*Space Swimwear have all made an appearance this year!
