‘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.

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.
