“OMG I’m a Sports Illustrated cover girl!!!!,” Kardashian posted on Instagram. “We shot this back in January and it’s been so hard to keep this cover a secret!” The 41-year-old reality TV star added that the cover shoot was one of her “bucket list goals.” On the cover, Kardashian wore a tan triangle bra top and a cheeky thong from her Skims brand. She accessorized the two-piece swimsuit with matching sheer sleeves.
On another version of the cover, Ciara wore a one-piece leopard print swimsuit by LaQuan Smith. The 36-year-old singer completed her look with a black cowboy hat. “Wow Wow Wow!!! This Dream of mine to be on the cover of @SI_SwimSuit finally came true!,” Ciara posted on Instagram. “Truly proud to be on the cover of such an Iconic Magazine and to join the elite list of women that have come before me!”
Kardashian and Ciara join additional cover girls Yumi Nu and Maye Musk for the 59th installment of the SI Swimsuit Issue. The new issue aims to celebrate female empowerment while showcasing a range of body types.
