The 5: Best Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Models Ever

Feb 14, 2014, 9:31 PM | Updated: 11:31 pm

The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover was unveiled on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night and will features Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen.

It’s the first cover for all three models — an honor that looks tremendous on the résumé of any supermodel.

The cover reveal got me to thinking…in the 50 years of the SI Swimsuit Issue, who are the best of the best. There have been 46 cover models in the 50-year history of the magazine special, and narrowing the list to five is about as difficult as splitting the atom.

But here goes.
