Kate Upton's Body-Painting Shoot From 2011 Is Sizzling Hot (VIDEO)

You can't look in two directions in a supermarket without seeing Kate Upton in a magazine these days, so the chance to see her at the beginning of her career is one we'll jump at.

Sports Illustrated's Swim Daily has just released a behind-the-scenes video from 2011 that shows Upton posing in a body painted bikini — and as expected, she looks amazing.

"I'm really surprised how much it looked like a suit because I really feel like I'm standing out in front of the camera, naked," she said of the shoot.

We don't have the photos themselves, but we did manage to dig up some other fantastic images of Kate from near the start of her career.
