All-American beauty Kate Upton landed her first Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover, much to the delight of men around the world.

The 19-year-old model and "Dougie" dance expert made her first appearance in SI's swimsuit edition last year when she was named rookie of the year.

The cover was unveiled on the Late Show With David Letterman last night.

The curvacious Upton appears on the cover in a barely-there red and brown string bikini against a backdrop of the waters of Australia. She now joins the likes of Tyra Banks, Petra Nemcova, Elle Macpherson and Christie Brinkley, who were all once featured as Sports Illustrated covergirls.

The swimsuit issue hits newsstands today.
