Kate Upton: What's the Big Deal? Wonders Carol Alt

No one knows Sports Illustrated swimsuit models like a former cover girl of the annual issue. So who better to weigh in on Kate Upton’s current reign as the queen of the SI Swimsuit cover? Upton has landed the coveted spot twice (and also graces the back cover of the 2014 issue), but Alt thinks it might be time for another model to earn some attention.

“What I don’t understand with Kate is, like, ‘What’s all the hullabaloo?’” Alt said on HuffPost Live. “There are are many covers of Sports Illustrated! One girl was just wearing a bottom, a couple times no top, one time just beads. So I don’t get what all the hullabaloo is.”

To look at them, you wouldn’t think Modern Family‘s Gloria Delgado (left, played by Sofia Vergara) and Girls‘s Shoshanna Shapiro (played by Zosia Mamet) had much in common — especially sartorially. Gloria tends to favor short, tight and low-cut wrap dresses and huge heels, while Shoshanna’s tastes veer toward the girlie-to-juvenile. Gloria goes for huge, voluminous waves, while Shoshanna is known for her questionable side buns. But there is, apparently, one item of clothing on which the characters can agree: this sexy $450 Agent Provocateur monokini.

There are many legendary swimsuit models in the Sports Illustrated pantheon: Heidi Klum. Tyra Banks. Christie Brinkley. And now, for the magazine’s 50th anniversary issue, they’re being joined by a 55-year-old model who looks as good as the day as she was born and still has all her original parts (though to be fair, they are plastic): Barbie.

The iconic doll “posed” for the magazine’s “Legends” section in the upcoming issue (on stands Feb. 18) as part of her new “#unapologetic” campaign, in which she’s responding to critics by celebrating her 150+ careers, $3 billion worth and the fact that women can be beautiful as well as brainy (just see any of those legendary names above). Wearing the black-and-white chevron suit that first made her famous, Barbie tells us she was thrilled to be featured in the issue, “as it’s the 50th anniversary of an iconic brand and the celebration of legendary women who, like me, launched their career in a swimsuit but went on to establish empires.” Check out the rest of her exclusive interview below.
