From the Hamptons to Hawaii2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is the big splash in the publishing world today, with cover model Kate Upton grabbing headlines and turning heads. But we’re taking this opportunity to celebrate our all-time favorite SI Swimsuit Issue cover model, Christie Brinkley—the first to be selected for back-to-back-to-back covers, the first to have a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar (gracing every single month) and a member of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Hall of Fame.
