Nothing is ever as glamourous as it looks - modelling included.

Supermodel Kate Upton (25) is celebrating her record-breaking seven appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and the magazine shared some behind the scenes footage from their latest issue. Kate begins by posing topless, strategically covering herself, on a rock on a secluded beach in Aruba, and when the water starts to get choppy, a crew member comes in to give her some xxx shoes to get off safely.

But it wasn't quick enough - a wave wiped her off the rock, which wasn't helped by the dramatic tulle skirt she was wearing which weighed her down.

"The next wave coming, it didn't look that large from my point of view but it must have hit the rock just right and caught on," she recounted afterwards, laughing.

"This skirt whenever it's wet with all the tools it is very heavy and it dragged me down. Everybody was very scared especially MJ [Day, the editor]."
