Kate Upton has done it again. The bombshell graces the cover—or should we say, three covers—of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for the third time. Upton was first featured in the swimsuit issue in at the age of 22, when she earned the Rookie of the Year honor, before going on to grace the cover of the edition two times, in and The model said this year's issue is especially important to her, though, because of its emphasis on including women of varied body types.

Sports Illustrated has revealed its swimsuit cover model , and she's a familiar one! Kate Upton graces the front of the annual issue for the third time — and this time she has three separate covers to show for it.

The model returns to the issue with three sexy covers. Those are the campaigns I want to do and the career I want to have — to inspire women to love themselves. MJ Day shares that Upton voiced her praise for the SI Swim covers last year, when Ashley Graham was featured as the first curvy model to be featured on the front of the magazine. But she maintains you should love your body and celebrate who you are and not try to change for anyone. It helped me think about my body as a machine and less of something people can judge me on.
This year, the honor goes to Kate Upton! This will be Upton's third time fronting the Swimsuit Issue, and she told Kimmel the magazine didn't let her know she would be the cover model until just a day before the big announcement. The issue did not sell well and SI put their next issue on hold until when they debuted the first cover featuring a white bikini. The issue is credited with making the bikini a serious piece of apparel. Model Cheryl Tiegs graced the cover in the issue. This was Cheryl's second of three covers , , and was shot in Cancun, Mexico. Shot in the Dominican Republic, model Elle Macpherson tight blue one piece with rhinestone embellishments.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has always portrayed a certain version of sex appeal. This year, however, it offers a different message, thanks in part to veteran editor MJ Day. Day started at the magazine in as an editorial assistant. Her first task was sorting swimsuits in the fashion closet, but she eventually worked her way up to helming the iconic SI Swimsuit Issue. She is involved in every part of the process, from scrutinizing the swimwear and traveling the world for shoots to casting the women featured in the pages and on the cover. Day is the first to defend the magazine when critics take issue with its content.
