Kate Upton — Naked. Body. Paint.

Here”s Kate Upton … basically naked … with some strategically placed body paint.

You”re welcome.

Kate got all painted up for a Sports Illustrated photo shoot — in the footage, Kate”s trying to recreate one of the mag”s most famous Swimsuit Edition covers.

We think she nailed it.

“I definitely feel naked,” Kate said during the shoot … “Because I am.”

Kate said the artists took a particularly long time to paint on the necklace on her boob area … yeah, can”t imagine why.
