    It seems just like yesterday when the world collectively gasped at the sensational reveal of the 50th anniversary cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. And while Barbie's splash (imagine, a 55-year-old doll on the cover!) grabbed some headlines, it was the dazzling trio of Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen that left everyone breathless.

    Sizzling Sands & Swimsuit Legends

    That iconic cover, unveiled with all the grandeur of modern digital age via Instagram, had the world ogling not just at the lack of bikini tops, but at the sheer natural beauty the models radiated. Their beachy waves and sun-kissed makeup were the true epitome of au naturel.

    While Chrissy and Nina were no strangers to the pages of the Swimsuit Issue, having graced them for a few years prior, 2014 marked a remarkable debut for Aldridge. But then, debuting in style isn’t foreign to a seasoned Victoria's Secret Angel.

    From Barbies to Out-of-this-World Beauties

    In the glamour-filled legacy of the magazine, Barbie's cover inclusion may have been a nod to ageless beauty. But lest we forget, that year also had the otherworldly presence of none other than Kate Upton—because "travelling beyond the stratosphere in the name of entertainment is a catching trend".

    In retrospect, that year truly signified the essence of SI's Swimsuit Issue: pushing boundaries, celebrating beauties of all kinds, and, in the process, creating iconic moments. Here's to Nina and the gang, who, with that anniversary issue, etched their names in the golden pages of SI history.
