We all get excited when a new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition comes out, but isn’t it nice to look back at the stunning models who graced the previous covers for the past 10 years. We’re sure you’d still be in awe when you check out these sexy covers since 2006.
In 2006, SI magazine featured eight stunning models posing together in bikini bottoms and nothing else. These eight models are Veronica Varekova, Elle Macpherson, Rebecca Romijn, Rachel Hunter, Daniela Pestova, Elsa Benítez, Carolyn Murphy and Yamila Diaz-Rahi.
Did you know that Beyonce also posed for SI in a fun sherbet-hued swimsuit? The Dreamgirl shared not just her sexy dancing moves but her modelling prowess as well.
An aquamarine necklace as bikini top. Why not? Marissa Miller showed how you can keep cool in her barely bikini pose in 2008’s cover.
This was Bar Refaeli way before she had kids. She started this game of “show me down your bikini bottoms” in this photo shot in the blue sea of Canouan Island.
Although this bright yellow bikini is a perfect summer fit, Brooklyn Decker opted to put the bikini top over one of her shoulders and covered her boobies with her arm candies.
Irina Shayk proves she’s a real bombshell in the 2011 cover shot in Maui. Flaunting her best assets, the Russian model sat in the sand in a raspberry and lemon-colored bikini.
Even in a front shot, Upton’s side boobs are peeking out. She made this photo even sexier with that red bikini bottom that is barely even there.
Kate Upton once again graced the 2013 cover in a polar “Bare” theme in white bikini bottoms and an unzipped winter coat.
Hannah Davis lands on last year’s cover of Sports Illustrated, wearing a black lace embellished bikini. Her sexy cover shot was shot on Tennessee’s Blackberry farm.
