So we’ve finally received our annual winter taste of paradise with the release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and this year is extra special being that it is the 50th anniversary of the iconic publication. In the tantalizing magazine there are three athletes, 12 sensational rookies as well sexy veterans including Heidi Klum, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen and of course Kate Upton. We carefully studied all of the beautiful models and ranked them, which was no easy task whatsoever. Enjoy the lovely pics, give your feedback and check out many, many more pics here!
