UPDATED FEBRUARY 19TH 2014: Added the flip side cover with two-times cover girl, Kate Upton.
Congrats to the three girls who made it to the coveted cover slot! It’s their first time gracing the annual swimsuit issue cover.
This is the first time since 2006 that more than one model has graced the cover, and the first time that a trio has graced the annual Swimsuit magazine since 1994’s “Dream Team” of Kathy Ireland, Elle MacPherson and Rachel Hunter.
Chrissy Teigen, who is married to R&B singer John Legend, made her Swimsuit Issue debut in 2010. It’s the rookie year for Lily Aldridge, a Victoria’s Secret Angel married to Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill, while Nina Agdal made her SI debut in 2012.
55 year old Barbie also made it on the cover to celebrate the magazine’s 50th anniversary, but only for the promotional coverwrap. (source)
