Author:

By now, you've seen Danielle Herrington's 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. And while Danielle may have more swimsuit cover appearances in her future, we can't help but wonder exactly who has made the most SI Swimsuit cover appearances.

That distinction belongs to Elle Macpherson (five - 1986, 1987, 1988, 1994, 2006), followed by Cheryl Tiegs (1970, 1975, 1983), Christie Brinkley (1979, 1980, 1981), Kathy Ireland (1989, 1992, 1994), Daniela Pestova (1995, 2000, 2006) and Kate Upton (2012, 2013, 2017).
