The new issue of the iconic swimsuit magazine produced multiple covers, featuring Megan Thee Stallion, Leyna Bloom andNaomi Osaka. “If there’s one thing that our cover models have in common, it’s that they don’t have one thing in common,” said SI Swimsuit Editor-in-Chief MJ Day. “They look different, have different upbringings, have different passions and inspirations. But each is a reminder that beauty comes in many forms.”
