Kendall Jenner might have started the viral and polarizing no pants trend but Kate Upton is officially our winner. The supermodel, who made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2011 and was featured on the cover three times (in ’12, ’13 and ’17), opted for an ultra-cool and casual version of the style and showed off her legs for days in her latest Instagram post.

She donned a baggy magenta T-shirt with a sporty Balenciaga logo emblazoned on the front, and paired it with black-and-white Nike Dunks. Her blonde locks were loose and tucked behind her ears in the cover snap, and slicked back into a perfect middle-part bun in the next two.

The mom of one, who shares daughter Genevieve with her husband, New York Mets pitcher Justin Verlander, showed off her clear skin and natural freckles in a subtle no makeup makeup, including feathered brows, light rosy cheeks and wispy lashes. Upton accessorized with a few statement rings on her fingers.

“Heard we’re going no-pants this season?” the 31-year-old captioned the trio of pics she shared with her 6.7 million Instagram followers on Nov. 15, and proved her awareness of the latest and greatest fashion trends.

“Perfection 🤍,” Matthew Bujanda commented

“Fabulous; I’m IN!! 😍,” Michelle Denise Profit added.

“Beautiful ❤️,” a fan complimented.

“I’ve just thought how nice it would be to see your new post, and here it is! So beautiful Kate,” another gushed.

“Cute!🩷🩷🩷🩷🩷🪩🪩🪩🪩,” someone else wrote.

“Kate Upton just made pajama-sized tee shirts cool again 🙌❤️,” one person chimed.
