Daaang!

If you thought her “Cat Daddy” dance on YouTube was eye-poppingly awesome, then you’re in for a very pleasant surprise.

The Sports Illustrated cover model once again showcases her curvaceous body in the skimpiest of swimwear in her latest magazine cover for GQ’s special Independence Day-themed issue.

In addition to wearing a star-spangled bikini, Upton also poses in a sexy knitted monokini…

… and braless in a soaking wet white tee…

…and topless.

Though criticized for being too overexposed and hyper-sexualized at 19 years old, Kate just shrugs it all off—after all, she’s just doing her job.

The buxom beauty explains:

“It’s like any job… You find your strengths and play them up.”
