Jul 11th, 2013 | By | Category: World Model News

They’re buxom, they’re beautiful, and they know how to bring a smile to our faces! Yes, we’re talking about Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. And joy of joys, SI has only gone and counted down its top 50 swimsuit models ever!! Scroll down to find out who has made the coveted list.

From Rookies of the Year and cover girls, to downright knock-your-socks-off bikini babes, Sports Illustrated has the secret ingredient for maintaining an avid swimsuit model fanbase. And with nearly 50 years of the sexy issue in sight, it was about time they counted down their top 50 leading ladies.

We all know and love todays swimsuit models; Nina Agdal, Kate Upton, Irina Shayk, and many more, and what makes them even more appetizing is that the girls are a real cultural diversity. But what of all the stunners over the years??

Top 10

Coming in at no. 10 was none other that Paulina Porizkova, a Czech beauty who SI listed as its first Central European girl to make the cover in the early-80s. Next, at no. 9 the gorgeous Israeli model Bar Refaeli, who is also noted as the first Israeli to make it into the pages of the world’s most sought after swimsuit magazine, and defined a pinnacle moment in her model career when she featured in SI… it’s the picture that everyone remembers!

Next, 70s boho babe Christie Brinkley, woke up the world to her bodacious beauty when she featured on the cover of SI for three consecutive years and even made it into the Swimsuit Hall of Fame in the 40th Anniversary Issue. And then there is Brooklyn Decker, who is no. 7 on the top list. Following shortly in Decker’s footsteps is Cheryl Tieges — for those that may not know — who is considered the first supermodel to make it into the glossy pages.

And then there were five…

Heidi Klum, she’s all over our screens, if not on Project Runway, then on the judging panel for America’s Got Talent, and seems to make it to every celebrity VIP occasion — usually in a dress that fits like a second skin and low-punging neckline! But life as a supermodel started here, when the German beauty took it all off, well nearly, for her stunning Maldives shoot. This is a must-see:

No. 4 all-time favorite SI body goes to another fierce model, entrepreneur, and television personality Tyra Banks, who recently featured in FashionTV’s Throwback Thursday with one of her most applauded SI pictures to date. And what’s a top swimsuit model list without the one and only Kate Upton; a cheeky, bubbly, bouncy girl from Michigan who we can almost bet your bottom dollar EVERYONE knows of!

Falling in at second place is Kathy Ireland, who appeared in 13 consecutive swimsuit issues including three covers. And last but by no means least, the no. 1 top swimsuit model of all time goes to the super stunner Elle Macpherson. The title comes just months before the former model turned businesswoman celebrates her 50th birthday, and to celebrate the landmark feat. Sports Illustrated whisked off the Australian babe to reenact her first cover shoot, 20 years down the line to the day (of filming)! Happy watching:
