The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue isn’t just for sports fans! It has been one of the world’s most popular magazines since it was first released in 1964. Of course, its popularity is almost entirely thanks to the beautiful models that appear in its pages wearing nothing but tiny bikinis (or maybe just some body paint!) Despite how much time has passed, most of these lovely ladies are just as gorgeous now as they were when they first graced the pages of the magazine. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest models then and now!
Heidi Klum first appeared on the cover of SI in 1998, and a year later she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her career hasn’t slowed down since! She’s hosted the reality show Project Runway, been nominated for six Emmy Awards, and appeared in movies and TV shows including The Devil Wears Prada and Parks and Recreation. The supermodel is still as gorgeous as ever, and just this year she posed nude for a photo book by British photographer Rankin! She’s also busy raising her four children, designing her own clothing line, and hosting Germany’s Next Top Model.
