Since launching in 1964, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has become one of the most iconic and highly anticipated editions of any magazine on stands. It's turned supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Christie Brinkley into household names and catapulted the careers of fashion fixtures like Kate Upton and Bar Rafaeli.
In recent years, cover stars like Megan Thee Stallion, Ronda Rousey and Ashley Graham have represented the brand's more progressive ideals, promoting the idea that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes—and is as much influenced by accomplishments as it is looks.
Continuing in that vein is the 2023 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, which features Megan Fox, Padma Lakshmi, Angel Reese and none other than Martha Stewart, who proves you can suit up with confidence at any age.
