Kate Upton on Ashley Graham's SI Swimsuit cover: 'No one should be labeled by their body size at all.'

Kate Upton is no stranger when it comes to landing the cover of SI Swimsuit. 

So it should come as no surprise that when E! asked the gorgeous model about our 2016 rookie Ashley Graham landing one of this year's three historic covers, the former Rookie of the Year was quick to offer her support of her newest fellow cover girl

"I was so excited," Kate explained. "She looks absolutely stunning. So do the other cover girls, but I was excited that it showed all the different body types. I think it's important for all girls to see that.

Ashley Graham reflects on her first photo shoot with SI Swimsuit

"It's great that Sports Illustrated showed that every woman can look amazing in a bikini," she continued. "No one should be labeled by their body size at all." 

This isn't the first time Kate has offered support for our three 2016 SI Swimsuit cover models though. The world-renowned bombshell took to Instagram when the covers were first revealed to voice the importance of "empowering all body types."
