There are bikini photos, and there is perfection that is Kate Upton.

Kate first took over the world covering SI's annual swimsuit issue in 2012, posing, giggling, Dougie-ing and Cat Daddy-ing into our hearts ever since.

There are things online, and in life, that are overrated. Kate Upton modeling/dancing in bikinis is not among them. Like Richard Sherman, she is simply the best.

A mere slideshow does not do her justice. We've put together a GIF slideshow, demonstrating the natural beauty in all her perpetually moving glory, below.

You can thank us later, THGers. We, in turn, would like to thank Sports Illustrated, genetics, and the Internet. Click below to get started ... and kiss your day goodbye:

Toggle through a bunch of Kate Upton photos and you may quickly conclude: this model is totally perfect.

But that's not true, Upton insists.

She jokes to V magazine that she actually has "Catalog Tourette's."

"I can switch a pose like it's no one's business. As soon as I hear a camera click, I'm on. I tell you, it's a serious nervous condition," says Upton, who covers the latest issue of this publication both clothed and in a bikini.

On a more serious note, the 21-year old beauty - who has twice covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and been profiled in Vogue and Vanity Fair - says she doesn't look at the careers of anyone else in the business.

V Magazine features a story about supermodel Kate Upton this month and asks a simple question on its cover:

“Why Can’t Kate Upton Keep Her Clothes On?”

The obvious answer would be... who cares?!? Just give us more Kate Upton nude please!

But the fashion publication has included a pair of covers, one of Upton fully dressed and one of her wearing just a bikini, with editor Stephen Gan explaining:

  • Kate Upton on V
  • Kate Upton V Cover

“Each time I saw her at a shoot, she had become a bigger and bigger star, and her physique, more and more notorious. It has always intrigued me, as I’m sure it has to most readers, how someone gets embraced by the general public for taking their clothes off and loved by the fashion world for keeping them on.”

This is the fourth time Upton has covered V. When asked for her own take on the big cover question, she replied:

"Because I don't want to!"

And this is why we love both Kate Upton and ogling Kate Upton photos.

Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy split up for a number of reasons, some of which might surprise you. The first one, though, is kind of obvious.

“It was the distance. He travels and she travels, and it didn’t work out,” a pal said, adding that the two “were never that serious in the first place.”

Another source begs to differ regarding that second part.

  • M. Chmerkovskiy
  • Kate Upton Booty

“She liked him and brought him to meet her parents at a football game. She invited him to a lot of family things. She got serious about him quickly."

"He thinks she’s a good person. It just didn’t work out. The fact of the matter is that she is a 21-year-old girl and Maks is 33,” added the insider.

Our source says Maks “panicked” when Kate Upton went apartment-hunting in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to be near his Fort Lee, N.J., residence.

That's when she got the message, and called it off.

It is that time once again, THGers. The time to unveil the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, THG's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.

Between now and the end of 2013, we will be counting down the 10 stars who provided us with the year's best moments, stories, scandals and entertainment value.

Today we kick off the countdown with Celebrity of the Year Finalist #10 ... Kate Upton!

Kate Upton. Wow. See above. End post.

Just kidding. But sort of not really.

Kate Upton is back on the market. After six months together, the Sports Illustrated model and DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy have broken up.

Fellas (and ladies), try not to celebrate too vocally at the news at work.

  • Kate Upton in Black
  • Maksim Photo

"They are really good friends still and speak all the time, but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart," an insider says of the split.

"[Maks] has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn't working anymore."

The twosome went public with their romance in September, holding hands during a walk in New York City, months after they started dating on the DL.

"We enjoy each other's company very much," said Maks of Kate Upton. "She's a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened."

"She's just an amazing person. We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn't see that coming and I think neither did she."

We're sorry they split up ... but now you too can have an incredible time, watching the selected Kate Upton videos we put together after the jump:

Long before Kate Upton covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in back to back years, Carol Alt took the cover of the annual issue in 1982.

Three decades and 500 magazine appearances later, the 52-year-old is still at it, and she looks amazing on the cover of Galore this month. Beautiful.

Less beautiful? Her opinion of Kate Upton, whom she dissed as "a product of great media hype" and a "large size model." Ouch. The claws are out!

"Without Sports Illustrated, I’m not sure she would’ve made it in the industry as a high fashion model. Because she is more of a large size model," Alt says.

"And even if I’ve seen her in person, and I don’t think she’s in any way fat or overweight or anything. She is just more large-size than fashion models are."

"I think Kate is very good at hmmmm, how do I put it? She’s engaging. She comes to the set prepared to work, and in a good mood, she engages her client."

In obvious news, two-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl goddess Kate Upton may soon be joining the Entourage movie, a new report indicates.

Upton, 21, has not yet been officially cast in the lead female role but is in early talks, according to The Wrap, for the film that begins shooting next year.

"Though Upton has not been formally offered the role, she is in early discussions to join the cast," according to sources regarding the Entourage movie.

While the beauty's rep denies that any such talks are under way, they acknowledge there was "interest in Upton for the project earlier this year."

Upton's role is said to be that of the female lead, the girlfriend of movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier). She is also rumored for a role in Bond 24.

She is also awesome at flip cup and Sports Illustrated recently posted a Kate Upton nude video that defies comprehension, so there's that. Enjoy:

Supermodel stunner Kate Upton is so famous at such a young age, the 21-year-old hasn't had a chance to experience a lot of things most of her peers have.

One of those things is flip cup, which Jimmy Fallon introduced to her in a clip from earlier this fall (which is still worth watching now, trust us on this one0.

"I didn't go to college. This is what I missed out on: drinking games," Upton said, responding to Jimmy's challenge and revealing that she's "very competitive."

And skilled. Watch her wipe the floor with him below:

After a rough start with the first cup, Kate Upton plowed through each of the final four to come out on top, then trash talked Jimmy a little bit to boot.

You want some help with yours, man?

A video of Kate Upton nude, save for some strategic body paint and modeling for Sports Illustrated earlier this year, has been released by the magazine.

Thank you, Sports Illustrated. Thank you.

If you recall, Kate got painted up for a SI bikini shoot, only the bikini was just painted on as she attempted to recreate an iconic swimsuit issue cover.

Despite the length of time spent painting her chest by a team of experts at the publication, "I definitely feel naked," Kate Upton said. "Because I am."

Indeed.
