Three models share the cover honours for the 50th anniversary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for 2014: Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen.
The 2014 edition was revealed Thursday night on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit blog and débuted on national TV Thursday night in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
It is the first cover for all three models. Teigen has modelled for the special issue since 2010, and Agdal had her début in 2012. It is Aldridge’s first year.
The last time three models appeared on the cover was in 2006.
The cover was shot by James Macari in the Cook Islands. The magazine itself will hit newsstands next week, in print and digital formats.
Teigen also appears in Air New Zealand’s latest safety video, co-branded with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, which was also shot in the Cook Islands.
Kate Upton had appeared on the cover over the previous two years.
