The Hottest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Models of All Time

Winter may as well be over, because as of right now things will be getting hot. Yes, that's right—the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is about to drop, and in honor of the always-steamy cover, we look back at some of the hottest models to ever snag

Clearly, three is not a crowd. Sports Illustrated released its 50th anniversary swimsuit edition last night with not one, but three, beautiful and topless models—Nina Agdal, Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge—all sharing the milestone cover.

Teigen and Agdal, both former SI swimsuit “rookies of the year,” are now veterans to the swimsuit edition, while Aldridge, whose work as a Victoria's Secret model we also love, becomes the first rookie to land on the cover since Heidi Klum in 1998. Model/actress Kate Upton owned the last two SI swimsuit covers.

This year’s edition was revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and projected onto a screen outside the show’s Hollywood Boulevard studio. We speak for all men when we say thank you.
