Three topless models can be seen on the newest Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover. Models Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen were the three girls chosen to be featured on the cover of the magazine for its highly expected 50th anniversary edition.
The three beautiful models have now joined a list of impressive names that include Heidi Klum, Elle Macpherson, Tyra Banks and Kate Upton, among the models who have been featured on the cover of the famous swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.
In the cover photo, the three girls can be seen wearing nothing else but bikini bottoms. Naturally, the girls smile for a perfect picture.
The choice that Sports Illustrated made to work with these three models is not surprising at all. In fact, Lily Aldridge is a popular Victoria’s Secret underwear model. Moreover, this is the first time since Heidi Klum when such a model graces the cover of the magazine.
The anniversary cover is already a big hit. In fact, it is estimated that more than 70 million people have already seen it. The photo was taken by popular photograph James Macari, so there is no wonder that the pic looks great.
People willing to purchase the latest edition of Sports Illustrated should know that it will be released on February 18. In fact, the swimsuit edition of the magazine is its most read release of the year.
Analysts say that for a model being featured in the magazine actually is an important achievement. Moreover, a feature in Sports Illustrated can launch the career of every girl in the fashion and modeling world.
When it comes to the choice that Sports Illustrated made this year, it is important to know that this is the first time since 2006 when the cover of the swimsuit edition features multiple models.
However, in the golden issue released now, fans can admire more than 22 former models and their beautiful covers. The magazine claimed that the image they are trying to promote is the one of an athletic, healthy and pretty girl. Models are not thin, they are just athletic.
The swimsuit edition was developed by Sports Illustrated in 1964 with the main purpose to help the low sales of the magazine in wintertime. However, throughout the years the popularity of the swimsuit Sports Illustrated has increased a lot.
