Teigen, 38, won the publication’s Rookie of the Year in 2010 and appeared on the 2014 cover alongside models Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge.

“Chrissy Teigen represents the new generation of model moguls,” MJ Day, editor in chief of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, said in a press release.

In March 2020, Teigen first revealed she had breast implants, explaining that she underwent plastic surgery when she was 20.

"It was more for a swimsuit thing," Teigen told Glamour UK at the time. "I thought if I'm going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky! But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed."

"I had a quarter ‘teardrop’ cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line. But I want them out now,” she said at the time. “If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift."

The following month, Teigen announced that she would be getting her implants removed.

“They've been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie!”

"So don’t worry about me! All good," Teigen added. "I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat. ❤️"
