Some of the universe's sexiest women have stripped down to their teeny bikinis for a chance at landing the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and on the magazine's 50th anniversary, there are three lucky ladies gracing newsstands. The special issue "both celebrates history and makes it" with Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen appearing on the 2014 cover; the first cover appearance for all three models. "The 2014 cover embodies the essence of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. It is presented from a unique perspective, with a lighthearted spirit and breathtaking setting that lets the imagination run wild. This is what Swimsuit does best and we're thrilled to see it captured in such a memorable image," SI Swimsuit Editor MJ Day said.
