The cover of SI Swimsuit 2014 50th Anniversary Issue featuring models Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen was finally unveiled.
It is the first time that the models are featured on the cover of the magazine. Actually it is the first time that the Victoria’s Secret model, Lily Aldridge appeares in the magazine while for Nina Agdal made her debut in 2012 and Chrissy Teigen in 2008.
“I am so incredibly honored to be part of this issue,” Aldridge said. “As my first time ever shooting with Sports Illustrated I never imagined I would be on the cover.
“I’m speechless,” said Agdal. “This has been my goal. I couldn’t be happier to be on this year’s cover. It’s absolutely amazing!”
Added Teigen: “I am so thrilled and honored to not only be on the cover but to be on the 50th Anniversary cover.”
“We really, honestly liked each other,” said Chrissy. “Of course you are going to hear that from anybody who does a group shot, but this time it’s true. The connection was natural and the mood was fun.It’s been many years that I’ve been doing this now and this was the first shoot where I was like, ‘This may actually have cover potential. We had this perfect water, perfect time of day, perfect light, perfect look, perfect suits, perfect everything. And with James Macari shooting, I just sensed it was going to turn out right.'”
“We had been on the island for a few days by that point and had had so much fun together. That day we went to a smaller island where the light was beautiful, and we each took turns posing in the middle,” said Lily.
On February 18 the issue will goon sale.
