I don’t want to get ahead of myself here, but the newest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is shaping up to be the best one ever. They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I am most certainly judging this magazine by it’s cover(s) and I’m excited! What makes me so confident that this issue will top its predecessors? It all starts with the cover.
Sports Illustrated recently announced that there will be not one, not two, but THREE alternate covers for the Swimsuit edition. Model #1 is your standard bikini model, the beautiful blonde Hailey Clauson. She’s pretty much what you’d expect from this sort of magazine. Model #2 is none other than MMA fighter Ronda Rousey. Sure, Ronda may have gotten her butt kicked a couple of months ago, but she’s bouncing back stronger than ever and showing that her face (and body) still look fantastic after taking some hits. Model #3 is Ashley Graham, the first “plus size” model to grace the cover of this special edition. I’m not sure exactly what “plus size” means by definition, because Ashley Graham looks absolutely perfect.
Needless to say, this is one magazine I may actually go to a store and buy like its 1998. I’m also excited for all the promo thats about to happen and how much we’re going to be seeing of these three lovely ladies.
Truly speechless!!! This cover is for every woman who felt like she wasn’t beautiful enough because of her size. You can do and achieve anything you put your mind to. Thank you so much to the entire @si_swimsuit team! I’m so excited to be a part of your family. I love you all!!! #siswim #beautybeyondsize
