Kate Upton has recreated the iconic lifeguard girl Pamela Anderson of Baywatch series in a new photo shoot. The Sports Illustrated model is seen in a number of poses miming Anderson in a parody of nineties series for the cover shoot of GQ magazine.

In a photo, Upton who replaces the red swimsuit for a tangerine two-piece detailed with white circular patterns is seen posing with one of the bright orange lifeguard floats. In another, the 20-year-old watches over the beach from the lifeguard tower, orange floatation device in hand.

The swim suit model revealed an embarrassing moment, a wardrobe malfunction, during the photo shoot for GQ at an amusement park following which the whole crew was asked to leave the place.

"For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I'm wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the entire top falls off! I'm holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier-it was so embarrassing," Upton was quoted as saying in the interview. "You wouldn't think that would happen with a one-piece!"

Upton also revealed her minimal clothing secrets.

"I grew up in Florida riding horses, so the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit," she told the magazine.

In a two-minute clip posted online, directed by celebrity photographer Terry Richardson, Upton flaunts her lifesaving skills and her curves in the title The Many Talents of Kate Upton, showing the models' skateboarding abilities, hula-hooping skills and even dance act.

Upton, who recently returned home to Florida for the 4 July celebrations, shared her joy on Twitter. "Happy 4th of July!! Enjoying picnic and the beach with the birthday girl... Love being home!" Upton tweeted.
