The 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is making history. For the first time, the magazine will feature three individual cover models. Models Hailey Clauson and Ashley Graham land their own covers as does UFC fighter Ronda Rousey. Hailey and Ashley were photographed by James Macari while Ronda was captured by Fredric Pinet.

Ashley Graham is the first plus size model to appear on the magazine’s cover and second curvy girl to appear inside the issue. Graham says about her cover, “I’m insanely speechless. I cannot comprehend how I feel right now. This will go down in the books forever. It is a historic moment. Not only is this the first time that I’m in the issue, but I’m on the cover and sharing this honor with two of the most stunning women. This is for all the women who didn’t think they were beautiful because of their size. This is for them.”
