The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue surprised fans this year with 3 amazing covers.
Known for favoring models, the magazine took on new ideas this year and further shocked fans as it features Ashley Graham, a size 16 model on it’s cover.
Reacting to the move, the cover star says;
“I thought Sports Illustrated was taking a risk by putting a girl my size in the pages, But putting me on the cover? They aren’t just breaking barriers; they are the standard now. This is beyond epic.”
