"Hailey is the cool girl who doesn’t even know how cool she really is," said Assistant Managing Editor MJ Day. "She’s not only every man’s dream but also every woman’s ‘girl crush.’ She’s goofy. She’s smart. And she’s completely humble. What’s crazy is you don’t even feel like she knows that when you’re around her.

"When Hailey joined our SI Swimsuit family as a rookie last year, I knew that she was the future of our brand. She’s young for the industry. She’s has her entire career ahead of her. Yet to me, it was so obvious that she had only begun to blossom, and now that she’s landed the cover, I know her career is going to go crazy. When I look at Hailey’s photos, I see a legend in the making."
