Clearly, three is not a crowd. This was proven when Sports Illustrated released its 50th anniversary swimsuit edition in 2014 with not one, but three, beautiful and topless models—Nina Agdal, Chrissy Teigen, and Lily Aldridge—all sharing the milestone cover.

Teigen and Agdal, both former Sports Illustrated swimsuit “rookies of the year,” are now veterans to the swimsuit edition, while Aldridge, whose can also be found strutting the Victoria’s Secret catwalks, became the first rookie to land on the cover since Heidi Klum in 1998. Kate Upton has also graced the cover a fair share of times, the most recent being her head-turning appearance in the 2017 issue of the magazine.
