All the talk this week of SI Swimsuit alum Kate Upton helping out our girl Lily Aldridge has us reminiscing about freezing temperatures, sexy puffer jackets and our trip to Antarctica to create the infamous 2013 cover

So today's Throwback Thursday is dedicated to America's favorite blonde bombshell and her outrageously sexy intimates reel from the world's southernmost continent. 

Did you know that Antarctica is, on average, the driest, coldest and windiest continent? Did you know that Antarctica usually has a population of between 180 to 900 inhabitants per million square miles? Do you care? After seeing Kate's out-of-this-world intimates, probably not. And we don't blame you.

For now, let's just all bask in Kate's beauty and ability to turn an average Thursday afternoon into one we may never forget. 

BONUS: See some of Kate's best moments from SI Swimsuit 2013!
