Anyway you look at it, it’s been an amazing year for Kate Upton. Even during the whole stolen iCloud pictures scandal, the star never missed a beat. This year she took on multiple national ad-campaigns, starred in ‘The Other Woman’ alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann, and throughout the year she’s been rocking swimsuits with her amazing body from beach to space.

Sports Illustrated has released a new behind-the-scenes of Upton’s latest bikini shoot, where she not only melts the sands with some wonderful two-piece sets, she also takes off the top to tease all of her fans even more.

With her gorgeous smile and some of the most famous curves on the planet, Kate plays coy with the camera to keep things hotter than ever. Upton’s dance moves are almost just as famous, and she rocks a few of them. It’s hard to believe how many opportunities the bountiful 22-year-old has had this year, but we hope we see just as much of her in 2015.
