Join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. With a special gathering of 22 past cover models as our backdrop, we begin our travels in space with Kate Upton defying gravity in the first-ever weightless fashion shoot. Next we take to the mountains as Genevieve Morton, Kate Bock, Emily DiDonato and Ariel Meredith discover the striking scenery of the Swiss Alps. We then criss-cross the globe to find Anne V, Natasha Barnard, Bregje Heinen and Valerie van der Graaf enhancing the majesty of Brazil. We continue our journey in Madagascar where Irina Shayk, Jessica Gomes, Marloes Horst and Chanel Iman accentuate the beauty of the exotic wildlife found on this African island. Up north Hannah Davis, Gigi Hadid and Sara Sampaio showcase the recovery of several Jersey Shore towns post-Sandy. We enjoy the turquoise water and local culture of the Cook Islands with four past and current cover models, Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal. Last but never least, the rookies—Emily Ratajkowski, Hannah Ferguson, Samantha Hoopes, Cris Urena and Lauren Mellor—visit St. Lucia and are body painted with a nod to the past in iconic SI swimsuits. Our anniversary celebration ends in New York City where Heidi, Tyra, Christie and all the Legends of Swimsuit gather for a truly epic event.
