Fresh off Winter Storm Pax, a blustery New York Fashion Week and, most recently, a Valentine’s Day chocolate hangover, Sports Illustrated‘s annual Swimsuit Issue was revealed yesterday—and as expected, it has assauged all our February woes in one fell swoop. In its momentous 50th year, the folks at SI certainly didn’t skimp on the near-nudity on the glossy’s cover. One thing it did omit, though, is a certain 21-year-old SI veteran, Kate Upton, who covered the Swimsuit Issue in both 2012 and 2013.
But never fear: they’ve replaced Kate with a three-for-the-price-of-one deal, giving us five-time Swimsuit Issue model Chrissy Teigen and first timers (and Victoria’s Secret models) Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge. Judging from the cover lines, it looks to be a pretty jam-packed issue ("Plus, Kate Upton in Space," anyone?!).
According to AP, the mag will appear on newsstands this week—and thanks a trio of barely-there bikini bottoms, we’re guessing it’s going to sell just fine.
