Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Issue cover is revealed with Kate Bock, Olivia Culpo, and Jasmine Sanders on the cover. All three women, who are on the cover for the first time, were shot by longtime SI photographer Yu Tsai in Bali. In addition to their triple shot, where the supermodels wear black swimwear with gold chain-link details, they also each have their own single covers, and we've got details on all their amazing bikinis and one-pieces after the jump.
Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue editor-in-chief MJ Day commented on the decision to feature Kate, Olivia, and Jasmine in a press release, explaining, "These three women that make up the 2020 cover are inherently unique in many ways, but a solidarity exists among them in terms of their ambitions, goals and what they stand for," noting Jasmine's strong platform where she advocates for social justice, Olivia's recent MoreThanAMask initiative, and Kate's dedication to her mental health and wellness work. "These women are limitless, unstoppable and collectively represent the next wave of moguls to come out of the franchise."
The 58th installment of this issue celebrates diversity and includes athletes, entrepreneurs, mothers, and models, many of whom are rookies, such as Valentina Sampaio and Marquita Pring, who we were excited to see included. A total of 33 women (in addition to Kate, Olivia, and Jasmine) are featured throughout: Anita Marshall, Anne DePaula, Brooks Nader, Camille Kostek, Caroline Marks, Courtney Conlogue, Danielle Herrington, Emily DiDonato, Haley Kalil, Halima Aden, Hunter McGrady, Hyunjoo Hwang, Josephine Skriver, Kelsey Merritt, Kim Riekenberg, Lorena Duran, Malia Manuel, Marquita Pring, Myla Dalbesio, Olivia Brower, Robin Holzken, Samantha Hoopes, Valentina Sampaio and Vita Sidorkina, along with the six Swim Search finalists: Brielle Anyea, Christie Valdiserri, Clarissa Bowers, Jamea Byrd, Kathy Jacobs and Tanaye White.
