Nina Agdal

Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen have been unveiled as the cover girls for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover.

The coveted role is highly sought after by models, and has featured Kate Upton on the previous two covers.

Nina, Lily and Chrissy look stunning on the front of the 50th anniversary special, and pose together with their backs towards the camera.

Wearing only a pair of very small bikini bottoms, the girls look over their shoulders and smile to the camera with their long hair flowing down their backs.

Shot in the Cook Islands, the cover was unveiled on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night.

Nina, 21, featured in the swimsuit issue for the first time last year. Her shoot was so popular she earned the Rookie of the Year crown from the magazine.

Yesterday Max George, of pop band The Wanted, spoke out about how much he was rooting for Nina to land the job.

The pair began dating in October, but recent reports have suggested they’ve gone their separate ways.

“Fingers crossed for @NinaAgdal to get the new @SI_Swimsuit cover. You deserve it sweet! X (sic)” he posted to his 1.3million Twitter followers.

28-year-old Lily, who’s married to Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, took to Instagram to express her gratitude for being picked for the job.

“Feeling so blessed to be on this iconic @si_swimsuit Sports Illustrated cover with these beauties @ninaagdal @chrissyteigen. Thank you @mj_day @jamesmacari @darciebaum @Chercik and everyone at SI (sic),” she posted on Instagram next to a photo of the cover.

Stunning Chrissy also tweeted her joy, and said she was looking forward to more good times with her fellow Sports Illustrated cover girls.

“I am so happy there is documentation of this moment,” she posted.

“I cannot wait to spend the new few weeks with the all the fantastic women in this issue. Holy. Moly. Congrats @NinaAgdal and @LilyAldridge! (sic)”
