After multiple appearances inside Sports Illustrated’s infamous “Swimsuit Edition,” hottie Chrissy Teigen has finally landed on the cover. Topless with her backside in full view, John Legend’s wifey shares the spotlight on Cooks Island with fellow models Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal. This is an especially special honor for the funny lady as 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the long-running publication.
“The 2014 cover embodies the essence of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. It is presented from a unique perspective, with a lighthearted spirit and breathtaking setting that lets the imagination run wild. This is what Swimsuit does best and we’re thrilled to see it captured in such a memorable image,” says editor MJ Day.
Teigen also released a brief statement saying she was “thrilled” and “honored” to cover SI.
