Irina Shayk vs Kate Upton – S.I. Swimsuit Issue Cover Matchup

Sports Illustrated Cover Matchup

In celebration of Kate Upton’s 2013 S.I. Swimsuit Issue cover, we figure we’d match her up with the last person to score the cover before Kate took the past two years, Ms. Irina Shayk.

Curiously, Irina was missing from the recent press events, so we’re gonna assume she’s extremely disappointed & as of this very second, she’s probably begging Cristiano Ronaldo to have sex with her to help relieve some of the pain, but we all know he’s too busy getting his hair & nails done at the local salon. That bastard. Cristiano, just do every straight guy on the planet a favor & break up with Irina before she gets too old!! CHOP CHOP

Also, don’t forget, our coverage of the 2013 S.I. Swimsuit Issue starts here

I agree with most to liking Irina more than Kate, but the rarity of the Antarctica pics was probably going to have that person win regardless of the model. The contest was rigged. 

Also Moe, you missed an easy opportunity for more clicking in a versus matchup. The body paint shots look like they are all recreations of past covers. Either that or my memory is messing with me. Anne V vs Elle Mc. Upton vs Pestova. Babette, because we never have a Babette

I'm assuming that you've heard from Kate's agent, right? S/he has to be begging you to take this post down because it makes Kate look so foolish by comparison.

Did I mention that I don't want to see a bikini photo for at least the next week...? Need to do a post about this.

They covered Kate's sides with a jacket so they wouldn't have to Photoshop a waist in, lol! Irina is the obvious choice here.

Kate Upton is smart to cover her ugly waist in the 2013 shot.

Irina of course. Irina not only has a great face, she also has a flawless body. Both are sexy though.

Irina's cover wins, this year's Kate cover is better than last years
