GQ's latest issue features model and dougie fan Kate Upton doing what she does best: look alluring in many teensy swimsuits. The photos were taken by Terry Richardson in Santa Monica, where Upton's charms weren't especially appreciated. In the accompanying article, she said that during the photo shoot she was on a ride and her top fell off. "I'm holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing."
If you can look past Kate's...natural accessories, she's wearing a lot of pretty jewelry in the shoot. Many of the pieces were pulled from Roseark, including the heart necklace and bracelet pictured above (by Christopher Miller at Roseark and Karma El Khalil at Roseark, respectively). We assume the photo was taken post-Santa Monica Pier amusement park ride.
