65 Behind The Scenes Photos From The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

MJ Day, the editor of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue and the person basically responsible for turning Kate Upton into what she is today, has a knack for posting steamy behind the scene’s pictures from their exotic photoshoots around the globe to her Instagram account. With the release of the 2014 Swimsuit issue less than a month away we’ve decided to pull together some of the best images from this year’s issue as see through MJ’s Instagram feed. Faces are concealed to protect the identities of the models but we do get a good preview of what is to come on February 11th when the cover is revealed in New York City.
