Sports Illustrated did it again. Its cover for the 2022 Swimsuit Special was among the best of the year. The well-known edition of the magazine, which always arrives in May, featured "powerful women."

"Women with a wide range of backgrounds and body types"

Sports Illustrated celebrated "28 powerful women, with a wide range of backgrounds and body types."

Four months keeping the secret

Kim Kardashian, at 41 years old, posed for the first time in her long career for Sports Illustrated. Her enthusiasm was obvious in the way she announced it:

"OMG, I'm a Sports Illustrated cover girl. We took these photos in January (2022) and it's been really hard to keep this cover a secret," she commented on Instagram.

"An honor and a dream"

As Kim Kardashian revealed, "it is an honor and a dream to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition."

Dominican Republic

The socialite's photo session took place "in one of my favorite places in the world: the Dominican Republic," Kim K explained.

Skims

On the cover, the businesswoman wears a cream bikini from her Skims brand with matching cream gloves. The photos were taken by Greg Swales.

Inside the magazine, Kim Kardashian's photo session is overwhelming. There is silver, black and a motorcycle. All very simple.

"I never dreamed of this because I didn't know I could"

"I haven't been able to sleep, breathe or think clearly since I found out. I never dreamed of this because I didn't know I could. Thank you from the bottom of my heart," she said on social media.

Yumi Nu is emotional about the cover

The words of Yumi Nu to her followers have been, without a doubt, the most emotional of the four cover women's reactions. "I feel very honored to be able to make history with you," she told Sports Illustrated.

Maye Musk

The fourth cover and, perhaps, the most iconic of all,  starred Maye Musk, a legendary model, dietitian and the mother of Elon Musk.
