The cover girl hasn’t been confirmed yet, but an official announcement is scheduled for 2/14. Kate had a great year with being rumored to be dating Kanye West and most recently Mark Sanchez.

She’s got many deals and her future is so bright she needs shades.

Kate might be a swimsuit cover girl but she wasn’t always about the water, in the latest issue of V Magazine.

“While I was growing up, I wasn’t a great swimmer,” she says. “But my sister and I were obsessed with horses. We took lessons and kept getting better. We kept going to the next level.”

Congratulations on your cover Kate! Not bad for a model who started at the age of 12.
