The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 edition has three cover girls. One of them is plus size model Ashley Graham. See below the full cover.

Sports Illustrated unveiled three individual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 cover models. This is the first time in the 52-year history of the special swimsuit magazine released. Also a first in the history of Sports Illustrated is a plus size model on the cover.

Ashley Graham is featured in the 2016 Swimsuit edition for the first time. She is a so called SI Swimsuit rookie. In her first appearance she already makes the cover. 28-year-old Ashley Graham is born in Lincoln, Nebraska. She is modeling since 2001. The model already appeared in last year's Swimsuit edition in an advertisement from the swimsuit label "Swimsuits For All."

"Everyone thinks that it was Ashley’s Swimsuits for All campaign that brought her to my attention last year," said Assistant Managing Editor MJ Day. "But I actually met with Ashley the summer before that ad came out and already loved her. It’s one of my most memorable castings. She’s so beautiful and yet she was one of the most impassioned and articulate people who has ever come through my doors. We were just so excited to be in each others’ presence."

"She’s a champion for all women. There’s no denying that Ashley Graham brings something different to the table. It’s exciting to meet someone who can totally handle this moment, take it, and amplify it, all because of who she is and how she celebrates herself."
