Your home for everything artistic

If you even causally follow entertainment news, you will almost undoubtedly have heard about the three covers of this years Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. And, whether you are a fan or not, there is one thing that is indisputable. This issue made history.

Let’s start of by saying that three are essentially three things that mean a female model (and a photographer) has reached the pinnacle of success in their career. If you are a runway model or photographer or one who works in the fashion clothing modeling, it doesn’t get bigger than working for Victoria Secret. If you are in the glamour genre, no matter how you may or may not feel about it, Playboy is tops. And finally, if you’re a swimsuit model, you know you’re reached the top when you appear in the pages of the SI Swimsuit Issue.

So, in case you haven’t heard, the 2016 edition has for the first time featured three covers each featuring a different model. That in itself is new but even more importantly on both an artistic and social level these covers include:

  1. The first plus-size cover model (Ashley Graham)
  2. The first athlete primarily rather than model (Ronda Rousey)

The third cover is of your classic beauty and traditional model Hailey Clauson.
