This year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has three models on the cover instead of just a single bikini clad hottie. The 2014 Annual Swimsuit issue features former SI swimsuit models Chrissy Teigen and Nina Agdal, and newcomer Lily Aldridge -- all wearing just their bikini bottoms. The ladies were announced on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday night.
The cover, which the magazine is calling "the happiest cover in swimsuit history," features Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal scantily clad in just neon bikini bottoms. The very fitting theme of the 50th anniversary issue is "Past, Present and Future." People Magazine reports that a trio has not appeared on the cover since 1994.
Teigen, who made her debut in 2010 as "Rookie of The Year" is the veteran of the group, with Agdal following two years later and Aldridge making her first appearance this year. Covering the Swimsuit Issue can catapult a model's career -- and has a long-standing reputation for empowering the women who appear in the issue. Teigen has been known to praise them for their minimal use of Photoshop. Add that to the fact that the three women look absolutely gorgeous, and it's really no surprise they were chosen as a trio.
