Kate Upton must have been reading our minds, because in this new photo spread for Esquire, she cuts her skimpy little shirt off and goes topless.

Which is pretty much exactly how we want her to be, like, all the time.

No, we're joking. We like Ms. Upton with clothes on too. But they're not necessarily a requirement, if you catch our drift.

Anyway, feast your eyes on the gallery and the accompanying vid. Amazing stuff.
