On Saturday evening, TMZ announced that Ronda Rousey will grace the 2016 cover of Sports Illustrated: Swim, and she will be joined by fellow models Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson. Last year, Graham became the first plus-sized model to grace the issue (even though it was an ad campaign). Now Graham is stepping into the big time with a cover of her own. Yep, there’s no joint cover! The magazine is doing up three separate glossies for all three lovely ladies.
In a very special, drawn-out ceremony, Nick Cannon did the announcing honors. There’s a lot of goodies here to unpack, but first, here’s a first look at the covers.
