Perhaps the queen of the Swimsuit edition, Australian model Elle Macpherson graced the cover of Sports Illustrated a record five times; on three occasions between 1986 and 1988, before returning in 1994 and 2006.

Nicknamed ‘The Body’, Macpherson rose to stardom alongside the likes of Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington to become one of the most sought-after models of the late 1980s. Her success hasn’t waned either; she remains in the limelight as the host and executive producer of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model, and more recently as a businesswoman, leading ventures into the worlds of lingerie and beauty products.
