Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2020: Olivia Culpo, Jasmine Sanders en meer

Dames en heren, de eerste shoots van Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2020 druppelen binnen en dat is nog altijd reden tot een vreugdedans. Olivia Culpo, Jasmine Sanders en Kate Bock zijn de covergirls en zij vormen slechts het topje van de ijsberg.

Al sinds 1964 hult het Amerikaanse tijdschrift Sports Illustrated modellen, celebrities en atleten in bikini’s en badpakken voor de Swimsuit Issue. Van tennislegende Steffi Graf (1997) tot Beyoncé (2007), de grootste namen hebben de revue gepasseerd. Daarnaast zijn er ook modellen groot geworden door het jaarlijkse nummer.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2020

Voor de productie van SI Swimsuit 2020 was natuurlijk alles anders. Het grootste gedeelte van de shoots was al voor de pandemie geschoten, maar de productie en een paar laatste shoots ondervonden er wel hinder van. Gaan we je niet mee vermoeien.

De covergirls van dit jaar zijn Olivia Culpo, Jasmine Sanders en Kate Bock. Het trio werd in november 2019 gefotografeerd door Yu Tsai op Bali. Een voorproefje.

WOW! I really am speechless and this still doesn’t feel real. I am so grateful for every experience I have been able to have with my @si_swimsuit family. Thank you so much @mj_day – your warmth and genuinity is unparalleled and I have learned and grown so much. It’s been an honor to be surrounded by so many amazing and strong women. The second swipe here is a vision board I made about 4 years ago before I had ever even shot for sports illustrated. I cut out pictures from a huge SI coffee table book I bought and glued my face on it 😂 I was debating sharing this but figured if this huge milestone can mean something to someone else out there then it’s an even greater blessing for me. To anyone who sees this, never stop visualizing and striving for what you want. Don’t lose hope and remain focused and persistent. 4 years ago when I was pasting these images onto a poster board it was me sitting on the floor with my glue stick and scissors shooting for the stars and it felt completely unattainable. I just hope this can show anyone out there that their goals, big or small, really can come true and that you deserve it. Thank you to everyone who has helped me achieve this dream and to all the other dreamers, never give up ❤️🌟 I love you guys!!!

Olivia Culpo werd in 2019 door Maxim uitgeroepen tot ’s werelds meest sexy vrouw en in 2012 werd het Amerikaanse model al Miss Universe. Verdere introductie lijkt ons overbodig. Bekijk hier al haar foto’s voor Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2020.

Jasmine Sanders

@goldenbarbie is no stranger to the world of modeling, having started her career at the age of 13. Jasmine Sanders made a splash last year in her first appearance in SI Swim, winning Rookie of the Year for her shoot in Costa Rica. She’s continued to make an impact as part of the SI Swimsuit family, from speaking on panels at our launch events to spending hours interviewing, connecting and inspiring Swim Search hopefuls.  If you’re one of the 3.9 million people who follow Jasmine on social media, you’ll see her steadfast commitment to fighting for social justice. She uses her platform to provide resources on actions that can be taken—how to donate, sign petitions and more—to educate her fans, all the while sharing her experience as a Black woman in America. “Jasmine is never about Jasmine. Jasmine is about the people who surround her, and her innate desire to go out of her way to make the people who love and support her know that feeling is mutual,” says Day. “Evident from the fact she has amassed millions of fans across social media and champions for the Black, Brown and marginalized communities, using her voice in the most powerful way possible in times and places where it matters most, Jasmine is a true phenomenon.” #SISwim2020 is on newsstands and online Tuesday, July 21st!

Jasmine Sanders, voor sommigen beter bekend als Golden Barbie, zag je vorig jaar al in een zinnenprikkelende shoot van Maxim en sinds dit jaar is het Duits-Amerikaanse model een van de Victoria’s Angels 2.0. Bekijk hier al haar foto’s voor SI Swimsuit 2020.

Kate Bock

Nine years ago, @katebock was driving through her hometown, Vancouver, when she got the news she had been booked to appear in SI Swim. She remembers pulling over to take in the surreal moment with her sister and cousin, screaming with joy. Little did she know she’d go on to spend almost a decade shooting in the world’s most beautiful destinations, winning 2013 Swimsuit Rookie of the Year, and now appearing on not one but two covers. Kate has been a health and wellness guru long before it was trendy. Born with a mind for branding, she has been a true asset to SI Swimsuit and its evolution toward building a franchise beyond just the magazine pages. We often refer to our models as family because we cherish, care and support them as if they were our own. We also encourage them to be a part of the brand’s business with a constant flow of ideas between us and them. It wouldn’t come as a shock to find Kate Bock in one of our boardrooms helping us brainstorm. “Kate is one of the best brand ambassadors and idea collaborators we’ve worked with,” says Day. “On top of her extensive work as an advocate for mental health and wellness, she has played a pivotal role as a creative and business savvy collaborator for SI Swimsuit.”   #SISwim2020 is on newsstands and online Tuesday, July 21st!

It has been a long, long wait, but the time has finally come. @katebock, @goldenbarbie and @oliviaculpo are your SI Swimsuit 2020 cover models. The trio were photographed by @yutsai88 in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Bali, Indonesia, back in November. Did we mention the best part? Not only are we giving you one cover showcasing these extraordinary and empowering women together, but we also have three additional covers, one of each model individually. This marks a first for the brand: three powerful women. Four incredible covers. One groundbreaking issue. “These three women who make up the 2020 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue are inherently unique but a solidarity exists among them in terms of their ambitions, goals and what they stand for,” says SI Swimsuit editor-in-chief @mj_day. #SISwim2020 is on newsstands and online Tuesday, July 21st!

SI Rookies 2020

Maar eigenlijk gaat het in de Swimsuit Issue 2020 van Sports Illustrated vooral om de rookies, die voor het eerst in het magazine te zien zijn. Maak kennis, in volgorde, met Valentina Sampaio, Kim Riekenberg, Lorena Duran, Anita Marshall, Brooks Nader, Hyunjoo Hwang, Josephine Skriver en Marquita Pring.

I am excited and honored to be part of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way. I was born trans in a remote, humble fishing village in northern Brazil. Brazil is a beautiful country, but it also hosts the highest number of violent crimes and murders against the trans community in the world—three times that of the U.S. Being trans usually means facing closed doors to peoples’ hearts and minds. We face snickers, insults, fearful reactions and physical violations just for existing. Our options for growing up in a loving and accepting family, having a fruitful experience at school or finding dignified work are unimaginably limited and challenging. 💜🧡💛❤️💚

“So many emotions came to mind when I was presented with the opportunity to be a Sports Illustrated Rookie. My initial feeling was disbelief, coupled with complete happiness to have a voice and be a platform for change. Growing up as a little girl in Boston I didn’t see myself represented anywhere in fashion. At that time there was limited diversity as a beauty standard. I tried to fit in, but quickly realized that I was different and destined to break boundaries! I would not accept the public opinion of what “normal” should look like. Fast forward to 2020 where my new normal has shifted to being that quirky girl gracing the pages of SI in braids! So, to that little kid who may not feel seen I just want to say – keep dreaming because no dream is too big or wild!!" – Thank you, I can not put into words how grateful I am for this opportunity @mj_day @si_swimsuit ❤️✨
