Sports Illustrated has announced that Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Maye Musk and Yumi Nu will cover this year’s set of swimsuit edition magazines.
“Wow! My dream to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition came true! Proud to be on the cover of such an Iconic Magazine & to join the list of elite women that have come before me! Thanks to the SI team for choosing me to be your Cover Girl. Gonna be makin that thang JUMP today,” Ciara tweeted.
“I vividly remember Tyra Banks on the cover and women with curves. I remember thinking that is so cool. But, I still didn’t think I would have—I thought you had to be a professional model and a runway model. It was always really young girls. I don’t want to date myself or sound old, but in my 40s? That’s crazy,” Kim Kardashian added.
The 2022 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is set hit newsstands on May 19, 2022. The annual magazine release will also feature stories and images from “28 powerful and beautiful women.” Among those featured will be Kamie Crawford, Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart. 2021 Rookie of the Year Katrina Scott will also be highlighted throughout the magazine.
