Chrissy Teigen. 

Chrissy Teigen made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2010 when she won Rookie of the Year, photographed by Walter Iooss Jr. in the Maldives. She appeared in the magazine for seven consecutive years, even gracing the 50th-anniversary cover in ’14 with Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge, photographed by James Macari in the Cook Islands. 

Beyond modeling, Teigen built an empire with her lifestyle brand, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, offering recipes, cookware and loungewear. She published three bestselling cookbooks, cohosted “Lip Sync Battle” and hosted the reality show “Chrissy’s Court” on Roku, all while engaging her 53 million followers on Twitter and Instagram.

In 2017, just five months after giving birth to Luna, Teigen fearlessly returned for an SI Swimsuit photoshoot in Indonesia with James Macari. Her comfort in front of the lens showcased her post-pregnancy confidence and beauty.

Reflecting on her experience with SI Swimsuit, Teigen once shared, “It’s not hard being naked in front of this group of people, because everyone is so, first of all, warm and welcoming about like a curvy body and a beautiful silhouette, so that’s different.” She appreciated the brands celebration of feminine beauty and diverse body types.

Today, as a lifestyle entrepreneur and a mom of four alongside her husband, John Legend, Teigen remains an iconic figure. Her versatility as a model, businesswoman and mother has left a lasting impression on the world of SI Swimsuit and beyond. Check out seven of her most wanderlust-inspiring photos from her 2016 photoshoot in Zanzibar with Rueven Afanador below.
