The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2017 is one of the big pop culture moments in Q1 of 2017. Here is everything you need to know. Updated.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is a massive online and print event that will be launched on Monday. SI managed to make its special Swimsuit edition an annual pop culture event everybody is talking about.

Update: The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2017 has finally been released online late Tuesday night. Kate Upton is the SI Swimsuit cover model.

In a new teaser released late Monday, SI confirms the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 will be released on February 14 online and on newsstands.

Sports Illustrated announced on January 10th that Aly Raisman and Simone Biles are featured in the SI Swimsuit 2017 edition. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2017 has not been released on Monday. SI only had their rookie team meet the press in New York. In the afternoon the SI swimsuit model newcomers rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

The MJ Day, Editor of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, suffered an ill timed setback on social media. Her Instagram account has been deleted and is still gone. She said on Twitter: "I was posting photos from the @NYSE ??!!! And poof! My account disappeared mid post!" It is possible that Instagram's nudity police has removed her account. 

This year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition features again a lot of skin and many photos are actually sans swimsuit. MJ Day has been sharing behind the scene photos of the SI swimsuit shoots and also final photos of the models.

The most recent Instagram's on MJ Day's account are though not too racy. I still had her Instagram account open and took this screenshot. The other explanation of the deletion of the Instagram account is that it's the work of a hacker.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 cover model will be a guest on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live Show on Tuesday, Feb. 14. It is not clear yet, how SI will reveal the cover model as the SI Swimsuit Edition on Tuesday.

Turns out the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 edition will be a staged release. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 cover will not be unveiled on Monday, but on Tuesday, most likely in the SI Swimsuit cover reveal will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

SI tweeted on Sunday, Feb. 12, "T-minus 48(ish) hours til our #SISwim 2017 cover is revealed!" 

On Feb. 6, Sports Illustrated dropped a huge bomb. 63-year-old Christie Brinkley will make a comeback to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition along with her two daughters. Brinkley created a huge hype for the Swimsuit edition that could mean that SI decides to put her on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2017.

Sports Illustrated released a teaser video for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 edition on January 18. Fans can get a glimpse of the locations, swimsuits and sexy bodies of the swimsuit models. The identities of the models is kept secret.

The VIBES by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit festival will take place in Houston on Feb. 17 and Feb. 18, marking the end of the SI Swimsuit edition launch week. The tickets are on sale now here.
