‘Sports Illustrated’ unveils three sexy ‘Swimsuit Issue’ cover models

As is tradition, here’s your look at 2016’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover models. Going against tradition, however, is SI‘s decision to feature not one but three separate cover models. In the past, the print magazine has featured three models on a single cover, but this year marks the very first time it’s releasing three different covers with each showcasing a different model. How about that!

This year’s Swimsuit Issue cover models are Hailey Clauson, Ashley Graham, and Ronda Rousey. SI assistant managing editor MJ Day elaborates on the zine’s support to promote varying body types.

“The three covers of Hailey, Ronda and Ashley celebrate the new SI Swimsuit. All three women are beautiful, sexy, and strong. Beauty is not cookie cutter. Beauty is not ‘one size fits all.’ Beauty is all around us and that became especially obvious to me while shooting and editing this year’s issue.”

Clauson, 20, appeared in last year’s Swimsuit Issue and the blonde bombshellbe the obvious choice to grace the cover. In a surprising and gracious move, SI is proud to present to the world newcomer and plus-size model Graham, 28, and fierce MMA fighter Rousey, 29, in their respective covers. Clauson’s topless cover is certainly the most risqué. Graham exudes confidence in her purple and yellow-laced bikini. And Rousey sports nothing but intricate body paint.

You’re welcome.

The 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model is…

24-year-old Hannah Davis, an American born in Saint Thomas, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, is this year’s SI swimsuit cover girl. You may recognize her: She’s a professional model, appearing in campaigns for Ralph Lauren and other top fashion brands. If you’re a sports freak, you may know her as Derek Jeter’s on-again off-again girlfriend. And if you’re counting, this is Davis’ third time appearing in a SI Swimsuit Issue, so she’s no rookie.

After you’re done ogling the racy cover (so much torso this year!), there’s more where that came from. Here is Hannah Davis’ page that’s packed with stills from her photoshoot as well as video. Photographer Ben Watts snapped the collection at Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm. Jimmy Fallon had the honor of unveiling the coveted cover on The Tonight Show; watch it happen here.

The latest Swimsuit Issue is on newsstands today, and an online portal featuring the rest of the zine’s models is live.

The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover models are…

That’s no typo. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue the zine is plastering not one but three models on the cover this year. They are Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen. Agdal, 21, first splashed onto the SI Swimsuit scene in 2012; Aldridge, 28, is a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” and this is her rookie year as a Swimsuit Issue model; and Teigen, 28, who recently married R&B singer John Legend, has been featuring in the Issue since 2010. After ogling the cover above, click the respective links above to “get to know” these bombshells better and a video sits below the break.

The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model is…

American Kate Upton, again. The 20-year-old model and actress graces the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for the second consecutive year from Antarctica. The blonde bombshell needs no further introduction, so if you can do it drop your gaze from the cover shot to the gallery below that is jam-packed with booby-busting shots of Upton surviving the sub-zero temperatures of the Antarctic tundra in style and on a boat. A steaming hot video hangs after the break.

The 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model is…

American Kate Upton, age 19, is the second youngest model to cover the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In 2011 she was named SI‘s Rookie of the Year, and this year the teenage blonde bombshell was upgraded to cover model status. Guys, I know, too many words. Inch your eyes below and open the gallery to view more pics from the photoshoot, then dash after the break to watch video.

How does Upton compare to the previous Swimsuit Issue cover girls Brooklyn Decker and Irina Shayk? Sound off in the comment section below, that is, if you ever figure out how Upton managed to keep her breasts inside that top made for a toddler.

The 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model is…

Russian-born 25-year-old Irina Shayk follows Brooklyn Decker as the next cover model of the always anticipated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Shayk was discovered in 2004 and this marks her fifth appearance in the Swimsuit Issue. Shayk, who claims to work out five times a week (um, I believe it), is currently dating soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Enough words, am I right? Gaze at the SI cover above, then browse through the gallery of images below. The video (sitting after the break) goes behind-the-scenes of her photoshoot in the Philippines. And there’s more where all this came from; head over to Shayk’s main SI page for even more pics and vids.

Dania Ramirez graces this month’s Maxim

Dominican actress Dania Ramirez has had roles in The Sopranos and X-Men: The Last Stand, but you probably know her better as Maya from NBC’s Heroes and most recently Turtle’s squeeze Alex on Entourage.  Though she’s been featured in Maxim before, this is her first time gracing the cover with her stunning exotic beauty.  Enough words..I’m going to let you jump right to the spread.  Look below for two photo galleries.  The first includes pictures from this month’s cover shoot, the second contains images from her 2008 feature.  Bonus!  Check out the video below to go behind-the-scenes with Dania on her photoshoot.  Aaand, you’re welcome.

Meet Daisy Lowe, UK Esquire Magazine covergirl

Director Greg Williams is at it again, this time shooting for UK’s version of Esquire Magazine.  (Previously we’ve seen Greg’s work with Megan Fox and Kate Beckinsale for US’ Esquire Mag.)  Per usual, he uses a super hi-def RED camera, this time with a MX Sensor, to shoot video of covergirl Daisy Lowe that will eventually be converted into stills to use for her spread in the July issue of the zine.  Lowe is a 21-year-old English fashion model.  Watch her prance around in the video above, and check out a handful of the resulting stills in the gallery below.  [This goes without saying but the video and images are NSFW.]

‘Transformers 3’ finds Megan Fox replacement in Victoria’s Secret model

Though Paramount has yet to confirm the news, multiple sources reveal that Victoria’s Secret drop-dead-gorgeous model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will replace Megan Fox as Sam Witwickey’s (Shia LaBeouf) love interest in the next Transformers flick.  Victoria’s Secret has gone so far as publishing this video that congratulates Rosie for making the cut.  And hot damn does she make a great replacement.  As much as I took pleasure in watching Megan Fox run for her life in the first two movies (she was the sole reason I went to see Transformers 2, really), I think Rosie will suffice, wouldn’t you say?  Out with the old, in with the new…right?

Production has begun on Transformers 3 with a release slated for July 1, 2011.  Michael Bay, your wish has been granted.

Note: Michael Bay directed an extended commercial for Victoria’s Secret back in December.  So yeah, there’s that.

Brooklyn Decker shines as SI’s 2010 Swimsuit Issue cover model

DAMN.  This year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model is g-g-gorgeous.  Her name’s Brooklyn Decker, she’s 22, and this is her fifth appearence in a Swimsuit Issue.

Check out a handful of pics from the photoshoot in the gallery below, and take a gander at the behind-the-scenes video.  Click here for more pictures and video.

Topless bikini is the best invention ever

Victoria’s Secret topless bikini may just be the best invention ever.  VS wants you to “go as bare as your dare in a sleek and sexy suit” with their latest spandex swimsuit.  It comes with a removable bandeau to cover up, but then what’s the point?  Also, I’m guessing that VS assumes all US women visit the beach with long golden locks of hair.  Watch model Lindsay Ellingson show it off in the video below.
