The 50th issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is dedicated to celebrating “50 Years of Sexy” and does just that. With stunning beauties like Kate Upton, Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen sporting prominent global swimwear brands like Maaji, Luli Fama and L*Space, this issue is nothing short of impressive!
Every year, we wait with baited breath for the annual Swimsuit Edition of Sports Illustrated, and it is finally available on stands, tablets, online and every other platform which you can think of! In case you can’t tell, we can hardly contain our excitement. Nothing beats browsing through the pages and planning our next swimsuit get-up for the upcoming beach getaway and pool parties which are bound to be aplenty this summer. Needless to say, all the gorgeous models with their amazing bikini bods are the best inspiration to get into shape before the warmer months are upon us.
Given the fact that the much awaited Swimsuit Edition turned 50 this year, this issue was dedicated to celebrating “50 Years of Sexy”, and what a celebration it was! The pages were absolutely brimming with stunning models, exotic locales, renowned legends and of course, the sexiest designer swimwear out there. Don’t forget the risqué body paint bikinis either! We wouldn’t expect anything less from the guys at Sports Illustrated, anyway.
Neon & Triangle Tops
Along with the prominent splashes of neon (which is the perfect hue to highlight your sun kissed tan, by the way), we love that this issue brought the triangle top back into the limelight. With the delicate string ties behind the neck and back, this style accentuates your shoulders and makes your cleavage look out-of-this-world amazing. It is a major essential for any senorita’s beach wardrobe and once you have it, you won’t know how you ever did without. The triangle top is definitely one of the hottest cuts out there, and we are so glad that it is here to stay! To add to the mix, Brazilian bikini bottoms were everywhere this year, thus giving us the perfect motivation to slog it out at the gym and work on toning that booty. If you are looking to get your hands on some sizzling hot neon hued bikinis, PilyQ Swimwear is delivering a lot of gorgeous ones in their latest collection as well as in the Seafolly 2014 collection.
These bikini bottoms are a serious upcoming trend, and as we are here to deliver all the latest trend for you ladies, take a look at the Agua Bendita Swimwear, the latest designer swimwear collection that is going to be launched today! Talking about Agua Bendita, obviously they were going to be featured in the Sports Illustrated 2014 issue. This amazing multicolored triangle bikini has beautiful ruffles along the top and comes with hot a brazilian cut coverage on the bottoms.
So which daring divas made it to the pages this year, you ask? Well, to start with, we were presented with not one, but three stunning cover girls. Together, Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal really owned the show with their cheeky cover. What really made a splash though, were the stunning features of twenty two past cover girls, which exuded glamour and timeless sophistication like nothing before.
The ever beautiful Kate Upton, who is a two-time cover girl, graced the flip cover of the issue this year. The first ever flip cover of Sports Illustrated, we might add. Clad in a sizzling creations by Luli Fama, as part of an amazing two part photo shoot which took place in zero gravity conditions (I know, we can’t believe it either!) and in the Cook Islands, she looked every bit the supermodel.
The striking Irina Shayk, another past cover girl, did not disappoint either. This beautiful babe turned up the heat in a bunch of vibrant bikinis from the house of L*Space in a feature shot in Madagascar, as well as the Diamond Gypsy style bikini by Maaji.
When it comes to swimwear look books, it is an undisputed fact that nothing beats the Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition legacy. A true salute to the glorious swimwear industry, we reckon.
