Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover women. Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham, Hailey Clauson.
The 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has finally revealed its cover girl, and the honor has gone to not one, but three women: Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson.
There will be three separate covers issued featuring solo shots of each girl.
The reveal came during a live one-hour show, hosted by Nick Cannon and Rebecca Romijn, following TNT’s NBA All-Star Saturday Night.
The three finalists were all called to the front when Cannon announced that “for the first time ever”, there would be three covers.
“The best part is there are three different types of women [up here], representing every type of woman,” said Clauson, 20.
Rousey appeared genuinely stunned and admitted she thought she “was in the wrong spot” when called up as a cover girl finalist.
Graham, too, was suprised at the win. “I’m shaking!” she said.
Inside the magazine, the trio is joined by a slew of lovely ladies, including Graham’s fellow SI Swim’s 2016 rookies Barbara Palvin, Bojana Krsmanovic, Sofia Resing and Tanya Mitushina.
