The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is published annually by "Sports Illustrated". It features fashion models wearing swimwear in exotic locales. Inclusion is considered a stick by which supermodels are measured.cite web|url=http://www.slate.com/id/2113612/|title=The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue: An intellectual history|author=Curtis, Bryan|accessdate=2007-11-11|date=2005-02-16|publisher=Washington Post.Newsweek Interactive Co.

["Sports Illustrated 50: The Anniversary Book", Rob Fleder, 2005, p.286, ISBN 1-932273-49-2] The best selling issue was the 25th Anniversary Issue with Kathy Ireland on the cover in 1989. ["Sports Illustrated 50: The Anniversary Book", Rob Fleder, 2005, p.286, ISBN 1-932273-49-2]

Through the years many models, such as Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova, Elle Macpherson, Rachel Hunter, Valeria Mazza, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, and Marisa Miller, have been featured on the cover. Other models within its pages, but not on its cover, include Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Angie Everhart, and Naomi Campbell. The eight models featured on the cover of the 2006 issue were featured in a coffee-table book called "" (ISBN 978-1-933405-85-8). Photographed by Raphael Mazzucco, and produced by Diane Smith, the unprecedented "reunion shoot" featured 139 pages of unpublished images. In 2006, the issue expanded publishing to handheld devices.

The special issue was invented by Sports Illustrated editor Andre Laguerre to fill the mid-1960s sporting calendar. The story is that he asked a fashion reporter, Jule Campbell, to go on a shoot to fill space, including the cover, with a beautiful model. The first issue in 1964 entailed a cover and a five-page layout. However, Campbell changed the face of modeling, became a powerful figure and molded the issue into a media phenomenon.

Athletes in the magazine

Several female athletes have appeared, though not on the cover. Steffi Graf appeared in 1997. In the 2003 issue, tennis player Serena Williams and figure skater Ekaterina Gordeeva were featured inside the magazine. Anna Kournikova appeared in an inset on the 2004 cover, and had a photo spread within its pages.

In 2005, Olympic gold medallists Amanda Beard and Jennie Finch, along with Lauren Jackson and Venus Williams, were featured. Maria Sharapova appeared in an inset on the 2006 cover and had a spread inside.

In 2008, NFL cheerleaders appeared for the first time. Teams include the Buccaneers, Chargers, Cowboys, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Patriots, Raiders, Redskins and Texans.

Beyoncé

In spring 2006, Sports Illustrated chose music as the theme for the 2007 issue. Senior editor Diane Smith wanted 10-time Grammy winner Beyoncé Knowles to pose. [ Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Winter 2007, p.15, Diane Smith, senior editor ] In 2006, Beyoncé launched a swimsuit line under her House of Deréon clothing label. Beyoncé Knowles became the first singer to appear on the cover in 2007.

Controversy

To many, the magazine is acceptable exhibition of female sexuality not out of place on a coffee table. Recent editions have mixed the modeling with a tribute to sportsmen. The swimsuit edition is controversial with both moralists who subscribe for sports news content as well as those who feel that the focus on fashion and swimsuit modeling is inappropriate for a sports magazine and the publication of the swimsuit edition has irreparably tarnished SIs sports journalism credibility. Also feminists have expressed that "the Swimsuit Issue promotes the harmful and dehumanizing concept that women are a product for male consumption."fact|date=May 2008 Subscriptions have been canceled by subscribers when it arrives. The 1978 edition, remembered for its fishnet bathing suit made famous by Cheryl Tiegs, resulted in 340 cancellations. "Sports Illustrated" makes the controversy a form of entertainment with the issue two weeks after the swimsuit edition packed with complainants such as shocked parents and troubled librarians. Recently, the number of cancellations has declined. Nonetheless, to avoid controversy, its publisher Time Warner, did not deliver the special edition of the magazine to many subscribers in 2007.cite web|url=http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/12/business/media/12mag.html|title=The Swimsuits Were Skimpy, but the Magazine Was Invisible|accessdate=2007-11-10|publisher=The New York Times Company |author=Aspan, Maria|date=2007-03-12] Now, "Sports Illustrated" offers its subscribers the option of skipping the swimsuit edition for a one issue credit to extend their subscription by a week.
